Tastes Divine Dijon and Thyme Roasted Pork Fillet

I love cooking a nice piece of free farmed pork fillet. It’s a very lean cut of meat and can be cooked in many ways. It's nearly as low in saturated fat as chicken breasts.  

I only select SPCA Blue Tick approved pork. I used Freedom Farms whole pork fillet to make this recipe. 

While this recipe only calls for 1 pork fillet you can easily scale up this recipe to whatever number of servings you need.

Serves 4

1        500g pork fillet, trimmed
1        teaspoon dried thyme 
2        teaspoons minced onion
2        large egg whites, lightly beaten
2        tablespoons Gluten Free Dijon Mustard
2        tablespoons Olive oil
Fresh ground salt and pepper to season

Preheat oven to 180˚C.

Put the TastesDivine Natural Breadcrumb Coating Mix, thyme and onion in a medium sized mixing bowl and mix until the ingredients are well combined then place the bread crumbs on a plate.

Season the pork with salt and pepper and cover it with a thin coating of mustard. I use a basting brush to do this. Once you have coated the fillet dip it in the egg whites. Press it in the breadcrumbs.

Using a light coating of Olive oil on a shallow sided roasting pan or on a rack with baking sheet place the coated fillet on it and place in the centre of the pre-heated oven and bake for 30-40 min or until you judge its done. (When its cooked its internal temperature will be 65-70 Deg C at its thickest point)

Remove from the oven when cooked, lightly cover with foil and rest for 5-10 min. Slice when rested into .5-1cm slices and serve and serve.
