Introduction

Adapted from a recipe on the BBC Food website.
It might be a good switch to use grainy mustard instead of the dijon.

Ingredients


    For the pork
    400g pork tenderloin
    8 sprigs fresh rosemary
    salt and freshly ground black pepper
    1 tbsp olive oil
    15g butter

    For the potatoes
    32 Anya potatoes, halved, (Anya is a finger variety of potato with a slightly sweet and nutty flavour)
    30g butter
    4 tbsp chopped fresh chives
    salt and freshly ground black pepper

    For the mustard sauce
    200ml Elmlea double cream (a low fat cream alternative available in the UK)
    2 tsp Dijon mustard
    2 tbsp lemon juice


Directions

Preheat the oven to 180C/350F/Gas 4.

For the pork, make eight incisions in the tenderloin with the tip of a sharp knife and poke the rosemary sprigs into the holes. Season well with salt and freshly ground black pepper.

Heat the olive oil in an ovenproof frying pan and sear the meat all over for 2-3 minutes, or until golden-brown. Add the butter to the pan, then transfer to the oven to roast for 10-12 minutes, or until the pork is cooked through. (The juices will run clear when the pork is pierced in the thickest part with a skewer.) Remove from the pan and allow to rest on a warm plate.

For the potatoes, cook the potatoes in a pan of boiling water for 7-8 minutes, or until tender, then drain and crush lightly, adding the butter and chives. Season, to taste, with salt and freshly ground black pepper.

For the sauce, place the cream into a small pan and simmer for 4-5 minutes, or until reduced by about a third in volume, then stir in the mustard and lemon juice.

To serve, spoon the crushed potatoes onto a serving plate. Thickly slice the pork and arrange on top of the potatoes, then spoon the sauce around the edges of the plate.
