Ingredients

  • about 300g pork fillet, trimmed
  • 500g potatoes, cut into 2cm chunks
  • 1 x 250g pack chestnut Super mushrooms, halved if large
  • 2 tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • ½ tbsp dark soy sauce or tamari for gluten free
  • 1 tsp clear honey
  • 1 garlic clove, sliced (or ¼ tsp extra garlic granules)
  • 1 tbsp chopped thyme
  • 1 tbsp butter
  • ½ tsp garlic granules
  • 1 tbsp polenta, cornmeal or semolina (if you're gluten free use polenta or cornmeal, not semolina)
  • 2½ tbsp olive oil
  • 100g chopped kale

Step by step

Get ahead
Up to 3 hrs ahead, parboil and coat the potatoes . Prepare the mushrooms in the baking dish. Brown the pork, cool and chill. Return to room temperature before roasting.
  1. Preheat the oven to 200°C, fan 180°C, gas 6 with a medium roasting tin in the oven. Get the pork fillet out of its packaging; leave at room temperature. Add the potatoes to a pan of salted boiling water and cook for 5 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, find a baking dish that will hold the mushrooms snugly. Combine the balsamic vinegar, soy, honey, garlic and half the thyme, plus a grinding of black pepper. Add the mushrooms and coat well in the sauce, then add the butter in small pieces.
  3. Drain the potatoes and shake to roughen up the edges. Sprinkle in the garlic granules, polenta and remaining thyme, then add 1½ tablespoons of oil to coat. Tip into the hot roasting tin and cook for 15 minutes.
  4. Rub the pork fillet with ½ tablespoon of oil and season well. Brown in a frying pan for 3-4 minutes, turning a few times to colour evenly. Add to the roasting tin, giving the potatoes a stir. Put the dish of mushrooms on the lower shelf of the oven and cook everything for 20-25 minutes (basting the mushrooms after 10 minutes),until the pork is cooked.
  5. Remove the pork to a plate and leave to rest for 5 minutes. Baste the mushrooms again and return to the oven.
  6. Massage ½ tablespoon of oil into the kale and season. Add to the roasting tin, pushing the potatoes to the side first. Return to the oven, turning it up to 220°C, fan 200°C, gas 7 and cook for 4-5 minutes until the kale is slightly crisp.
  7. Thickly slice the pork and serve with the saucy mushrooms and the crispy potatoes and kale.
