    • 1 pork fillet (about 600g/1¼lb)
    • 4 tbsp breadcrumbs
    • 2 tbsp suet
    • 1 tbsp chopped fresh parsley
    • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
    • 1 medium egg, beaten
    • 1 tbsp oil
    • 1 onion, peeled and sliced into rings
    • 2 large carrots, peeled and cut into strips
    • 125g (4oz) lardons or chopped bacon rashers
    • 600ml (1 pint) hot chicken stock
    • Parsley, to garnish


    • Trim the fat and tendons off the pork. Slit the fillet down the middle, but not quite through. Open it out and bash it with a rolling pin to flatten it out as much as you can. Trim to a neat rectangle.

    • Mix the breadcrumbs, suet and parsley with plenty of seasoning and bind the mixture with the egg.

    • Put stuffing on the fillet, roll it up tightly and tie it with string at intervals along the length.

    • Heat a fairly deep frying pan, add oil and brown pork all over for about 6 mins. Take meat out and put onion, carrot and bacon into the pan. Fry for 5 mins to brown the veg a little, then put the pork fillet on top, pour over the stock, cover and simmer for 45-50 mins until meat and veg are tender. Leave for 5 minutes before removing string, slice meat and serve.
