    Serves: 4 

    • 400g lean pork fillet
    • 2 tablespoons rapeseed oil
    • 125g oats

    Prep:15min  ›  Cook:20min  ›  Ready in:35min 

    1. Cut the pork fillet into 8 slices, place each piece between 2 sheets of cling film and beat with a rolling pin until thin. Brush with a little of the oil.
    2. Mix the oats and chilli powder together and press on both sides of the pork medallions to evenly coat.
    3. Heat the remaining oil in a frying pan and fry the pork in 2 batches for 3 minutes each side until cooked throughout. Remove from the pan and keep warm.
    4. Add the mushrooms to the pan with the Worcestershire sauce and fry for 2 to 3 minutes. Mix the gravy granules with 300ml boiling water and add to the pan and cook for 1 to 2 minutes. Season with black pepper, add the parsley and pour over the pork. Serve.


    This is lovely served with green beans and a wild and long grain rice mix or mashed potato. Add hot smoked paprika for extra flavour instead of the chilli powder.

    Oat tips

    Look out for the different types of oats: rolled and pinhead oats make great toppings on sweet and savoury dishes, while oatmeal is ideal for thickening soups and casseroles instead of flour.
