This pork fillet recipe is very light, low calorie and tasty too, it is very nice with vegetables or on its own. Pork is a much underrated meat and is relatively low cost compared to most other meats, and many types of fruit can compliment the various pork recipes. A good example of this would be the old favourite, roast pork with home made apple sauce.
This recipe is great for including into your diet because there is virtually no fat and very few calories. If you don’t like pears you can use another fruit, perhaps apple or even apricots.
Pork fillet with pears and white wine
1 pound pork fillet, 1 medium size onion, 1 red bell pepper, 1 fresh pear, 1teaspoon sugar, 1 dessertspoon dried sage, ¼ pint dry white wine, ¼ pint chicken stock, 1 tablespoon lemon juice, fresh sage leaves.
Slice the fillet into medallions. Slice the onion into thin pieces. Slice the pepper into long half inch strips. Prepare the chicken stock.
Method — Serves 4
Place the onion slices and the peppers into a non stick pan and cook at a low heat until soft. Add the sugar and cook for a few minutes. Put the pork medallions into the pan and cook for 2 to 3 minutes on each side. Add the dried sage, dry white wine and chicken stock then bring to the boil and simmer for 10 to 15 minutes. Whilst the pork is cooking, remove the core and cut the pear into 8 wedges then coat the wedges with the lemon juice to prevent them from turning brown. Add the pear wedges to the pan and mix everything together and cook for a further 5 minutes. Garnish with fresh sage leaves.
Serve with your choice of vegetables, but don’t forget this meal is a low calorie one, and the pork dish itself is only 239 calories per person. I would go for something like broccoli and peas. If you have 2 oz peas (48 cals per person) and 4 oz broccoli (36 cals per person) you are still only talking about 323 calories for the whole meal for each person. If you are on a calorie controlled diet then this meal is a great addition to your repertoire and will not harm your daily calorie allowance too much.
The low calorie recipe above is delicious and quite easy to prepare and cook, so, I hope you try it and you enjoy it as much as I have.
