Ingredients

4 leeks

2 tbsp oil

1 clove garlic, crushed

2 tbsp chopped sage

75g fresh breadcrumbs

100g prunes, chopped

1 pork fillet, approx.

Instructions

1. Chop 2 leeks, heat the oil in a frying pan and fry these leeks with the garlic for 3-4 minutes, add the sage, breadcrumbs and prunes for 2-3 minutes. Allow to cool.

2. Meanwhile, make a deep slit the length of the pork fillet, be careful not to cut all the way through, butterfly the pork by opening up the sides. Place a sheet of clingfilm on top and beat with a rolling pin until thin.

3. Spread the leek stuffing over the pork and roll up from the longest side. Secure with 3 pieces of string tied at intervals along the pork. Place in a roasting tin and brush with oil, roast for 30-35 minutes until golden and cooked throughout. Rest for 5 minutes before cutting into thick slices.

4. Meanwhile, slice and pan fry the remaining leeks in the remaining oil for 4-5 minutes, season and serve topped with the slice pork.

5. Serve with roast potatoes.

Cooking Tips

Prepare the pork in advance and cook when ready. A great way to use up day old bread, white or wholemeal. Try using apricots or dates instead of prunes.
