Oat coated pork with spicy mushroom sauce

Oats make a delicious and healthy topping for meat and fish.

  • Preparation: 15 mins
  • Cooking: 15 mins
  • Serves: 4

What you need:

  • 400g lean pork fillet
  • 2 tbsp rapeseed oil
  • 125g oats
  • 2 tsp chilli powder
  • 320g pack mushrooms, sliced
  • 2 tsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 4 tsp reduced salt gravy granules
  • 25g pack parsley, chopped

What you do:

  1. Cut the pork 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 2-3 minutes. Mix the gravy granules with 300ml boiling water and add to the pan and cook for 1-2 minutes. Season with black pepper, add the parsley and pour over the pork.
  5. Serve with green beans.

Cook's tip:

This is lovely served with a wild and long grain rice mix or mashed potato. Add 1/2 -1 tsp hot smoked paprika for extra flavour instead of the chilli powder.
