Ingredients

  • Marinade

  • 1 jar of roasted peppers in oil

  • 1 red chilli, halved lengthways and seeded

  • 2 cloves garlic

  • 30ml extra virgin olive oil

  • For the pork

  • 1/2 tsp sea salt

  • 2 pork tenderloin

  • 1 lb. green beans, cut into 2" pieces

  • 1 (16oz) can chick peas, drained

  • 1 jar of grilled and marinated artichokes, drained

  • 4 spring onions, sliced

  • Salt and pepper

  • Dressing

  • 3 tbsp Extra virgin olive oil

  • 1 tbsp red wine or cider vinegar

  • 1 tbsp lemon juice

  • 1 clove garlic, minced

Method

  • 1.

    To make the marinade put the roasted peppers, chilli, salt, garlic and oil in a blender and blend until smooth (The paste will keep in the refrigerator for up to 4 days). Smother the pork fillets in the paste and rub well. Cover and place in the fridge. The longer the pork has to marinate the better the flavour so if possible leave overnight. When ready, wipe off any excess marinade and cook the fillets for about 20 minutes on a hot griddle turning regularly. Allow to rest.

    For the salad, cook the beans for about 2-3 minutes in boiling water until al-dente; drain, rinse under cold water and drain again. Put beans, artichokes, spring onions and chick peas in bowl and season. Whisk the oil, vinegar, lemon juice and garlic until smooth and toss together with all the other salad ingredients. Carve the pork into thick slices and serve with a generous helping of salad.
