Cooked to perfection and nothing fell out!
Frying begins
Covered with dried oregano and black pepper
Bashed flat under a baking mat
150g pork fillet, cut into squares

I saw Jamie Oliver make this on a recent TV program, it might have been 15 minute meals.

This is my lazy version of a similar recipe. The feta cheese adds a really interesting flavour, sour, almost lemon-like. I only used 150g of pork fillet as that was what was in the freezer. As it was it was plenty for 2 people.

Next time I would try this with a nice ham or very thinly sliced bacon. Prosciutto is probably a bit fiddly for this recipe. jamie made an impression with his thumb to put the cheese in; I found using cocktail sticks meant that you could leave the cheese as photographed here.

Method

  1. Cut the pork fillet into squares
  2. Spread the pork fillet pieces evenly on a chopping board and cover with a silicone baking mat (or clingfilm) and bash flat with a rolling pin
  3. Measure out your feta cheese and put the pack back in the fridge - it's very easy to get the cheese cross-contaminated in preparing a recipe like this.
  4. Meanwhile gently fry the onions in a little olive oil.
  5. Roughly distribute the cheese on the flattened pork squares - you don't have to be that neat, the cocktail sticks will save the day!
  6. Shake dried oregano and black pepper over the cheese.
  7. Roll up each square in a sheet of prosciutto (or bacon) and pin with a cocktail stick.
  8. Leaving the onions in th epan, place each pice of pork in the pan making sure it contacts the base of the pan.
  9. Pan-fry for about 5 minutes.
  10. Tun over and fry the other side for a further 5 minutes.
  11. Pick the thickest piece of pork to make sure it's properly cooked.
  12. Serve!
