Pork in Plum Sauce – One of My Favourite Pork Recipes for Fine Dining Style Meal
If I am to describe what fine dining means to me, I would have to say it is all about food and ambience. The food must be delicious and beautifully presented. And the ambience should include an elegant surrounding with a perfectly set table and a formal way of serving courses by experienced and knowledgeable waiters.
If you would like to have a fine dining experience in your home, you probably wouldn’t hire special stuff and surely you wouldn’t renovate your dining room just for this occasion. But you should use your best tablecloth, china and cutlery to lay your table. And certainly, you should cook a magnificent meal. I know, now you probably think “yes, sounds great but I don’t want to spend half a day cooking one dish”. I agree so I have great news for you: Preparing a fine dining style main dish in approx. 30 minutes is possible.
Pork in Plum Sauce is one of my favourite pork recipes. It is an Asian spiced dish served with a classic Western side – mashed potatoes. And if you think that it is a strange combination, you only have to try it, and I am sure, you will love it. The creamy potatoes work so well with the tender fillet of pork, al dente broccoli, pak choi and the plum sauce with crunchy sliced almond. So with this meal you certainly get the “delicious” box checked for your fine dining experience. Now it is only a question of plating this dish beautifully, and your fine dining* style meal is ready!
Heat up the oil in a frying pan, place the fillet of pork on it and fry on high heat for approx. 3-5 minutes on each side (the fillet is more or less round, so you will have to fry 4 sides) till brown.
Transfer onto a cutting board and cut into 2 cm slices.
In a small bowl mix the plum and soy sauces with water.
Put the slices in a single layer on a hot frying pan and fry 2-3 minutes on each side till cooked through.
Add the plum sauce mixture, let it bubble and add the almond flakes.
On a plate put a portion of mashed potatoes, cooked broccoli, pak choi and pieces of pork with the sauce; sprinkle with some extra almond flakes.

Hi, I am Agnieszka, and I am passionate about delicious but healthy food. Many healthy dishes are bland and uninteresting. I reject this. So I created my blog Tastes of Health to share my yummy recipes for healthier (often plant-based and gluten-free) versions of family favourites.
I look forward to receiving your feedback after you try them.
