Pork fillet with tomatoes

    35 min

    A recipe from my mum, slightly modified, this is one of my most comforting winter dishes. The lemon, curry and tomatoes make it particularly flavourful.

    great flavours, very quick, pork was perfectly cooked.  -  06 Feb 2016


    This is sooooo yummy and I believe not many calories as well. I was looking for an easy recipe to cook myself but my husband ended up cooking it instead. He wasn't so sure about the juice of 1 lemon, however this was the wow factor! We have this meal all the time now with 1 can of tomatoes instead of fresh toms. Goes down served over rice.  -  07 Jul 2016


    Could not believe how simple and quick this dish was, and yet so tasty. I added an extra 2 cloves of garlic and used a good quality tin of tomatoes, as I was doubling the recipe. It served 6 comfortably, and everyone commented how delicious it was. Will be cooking this again.  -  07 Oct 2013
