Cook it extra 1 or 2 mins for cook through; well done add extra 2 to 5 mins. If meat feel springy a bit that’s med rare, springy firm cook through and blacker color well done and a bit hard when feeling it.

Method

To make marinade, combine all ingredients in a medium bowl. Add fillets and toss to coat. Cover and refrigerate for 4 hours or overnight to marinate.

To make chilli sauce, process chillies, garlic and eschalot in a food processor until finely chopped. Heat half the oil in a small saucepan over medium heat. Add chillies mixture and cook for 4 minutes or until softened. Stir in vinegar, then stir in sugar and lemon juice. Simmer for 10 minutes or until reduced slightly. Stir in chilli flakes and powder and remaining oil and cook for 1 minute.

Preheat a barbecue grill pan to high. Shake excess marinade off fillets, then add to grill and cook, brushing continuously with kicking ass chilli sauce, for 3-4 minutes on each side or until cooked to your liking.

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.
