This is a great dinner party dish that always gets a WOW from guests. If you don't want to make the coleslaw, try pairing the pork with creamy mashed potatoes.

  • 4 pork fillets, about 115g each

  • 1.

    Seal the pork fillet in olive oil and remove from pan. Cover a board with Parma ham. Brush each sealed pork fillet in mustard and cover in two slices of Parma ham, tucking in the sides to make a parcel. In the same pan, add the garlic, Dijon mustard, wine, stock, lemon juice and sage leaves. Add the butter and season to taste. Bring this mixture to the boil, reduce by half and allow to simmer. Return the pork to the sauce and simmer for 10 minutes
