Pork in orange sauce (Secreto Iberico a la Naranja)

Use Kale instead of parsley recreated by Helen

I have recreated this recipe from +June d’Arville. Original recipe attached below.

Ingredient for 2 persons

2 pork fillets
zest of ½ orange
juice of ½ orange
1 red onion
1 small garlic clove
¼ cup (60 ml) brandy
1 tbsp white wine vinegar
½ cup (120 ml) water
a handful fresh parsley, chopped
olive oil
pepper
salt

Method

Pour a little splash of olive oil in large non-stick pan and place it over high heat. As soon as the oil is hot, add the pork fillets to the pan.

Quickly sear them on both sides until browned and golden. This should only take a minute or 2. Then transfer the fillets to a clean plate and let them rest for now. Don’t discard the hot oil. Peel the red onion and the garlic clove and chop them finely. Turn the heat to medium and add the onion and garlic to the hot pan.

Stir well. Season with a pinch of pepper and salt. Cook for 3 to 4 minutes until the onion starts to brown a little. Then add the orange zest. Stir again. The pour in the brandy, the white wine vinegar, the water and the orange juice.

Stir the sauce well and cover the pan then. Let the sauce simmer and reduce by half for a couple of minutes. It should thicken a little. Then add the freshly chopped parsley. Stir and check the seasoning. Add extra pepper, salt or white wine vinegar to taste if necessary. Then add the fried pork fillets back to the hot pan.

Cover again and leave the pork simmer in the sauce for an extra 2 to 3 minutes until warmed through again. Place the pork fillets onto warm plates and drizzle with the orange sauce. Serve immediately.

Pasta e brodo

I have recreated this recipe from masterchef series, link at the bottom.

Recreated pasta e boda: use ricotta and spinach agnolotti with the masterchef sauce by Helen
Recreated pasta e boda: use ricotta and spinach agnolotti with the masterchef sauce by Helen

Ingredients

200 g flour
2 egg yolks
65 ml olive oil
1 carrot, roughly chopped
½ bunch coriander, roughly chopped plus more leaves for garnish
1 lobster, tail removed and peeled, head, legs, shells reserved
180 ml white port
6 tomato
salt and pepper, to taste

Method

Place flour, yolks, 1 teaspoon oil and salt in a food processor and pulse to combine. Slowly add enough water (about ¼ cup) to make it come together. Transfer to a floured bench and knead until a smooth dough. Wrap in plastic wrap and set aside to rest.
Place 1 tablespoon olive oil in a saucepan and set over high heat. Add carrot and coriander and fry for 1-2 minutes. Add lobster head and shells and fry until orange. Add port and cook for 1 minute to cook off alcohol. Add 4 tomatoes, roughly chopped, and fry for 1 minute. Add 1.5 litres water and bring to a boil. Allow to boil until reduced, about 45 minutes. Remove from heat, strain and set aside, keeping warm.
Finely dice lobster tail meat. Place 2 tablespoons olive oil in a frypan and set over medium heat. Add chopped lobster meat, remaining 2 tomatoes, finely chopped, season and cook until lobster is cooked through. Remove from heat and set aside to cool.
Roll pasta dough through a pasta machine to the thinnest setting. Lay one sheet of dough on a floured bench. Place tablespoons of lobster filling along dough, top with another layer of dough and gently press around filling to seal. Using a 6.5 cm pastry cutter, cut out ravioli. Repeat with remaining dough and filling until 20 ravioli have been made.
Bring a large saucepan of water to a boil over high heat. Add ravioli and cook until al dente, about 3 minutes. Remove from water.
To serve place ravioli in a bowl. Add lobster broth to the bowl. Garnish with coriander leaves and season.

 

Note: Use freshly made and sold in supermarket pasta as I dont have pasta machine; prawns head and shells instead of lobster. Also use tawny port instead of white port with orange juice.
