PREPARATION OF SPANISH TRADITIONAL SPANISH PORK FILLET WITH LEMON SAUCE:
Cut the Pork Fillet into bite sized pieces, add the spices and leave to marinate overnight or for at least one hour.
Slice the onion finely and brown slowly until caramelized in the olive oil in a frying pan. Push the browned onions to one side of the pan and introduce the meat – brown on all sides. Introduce the finely chopped garlic and mix everything together.
Cut the lemon into six pieces and add it to the meat, with its rind, the olives and the white wine. Bring to the boil, season to taste with salt and freshly milled black pepper, cover and leave to cook on a low, simmering heat for half an hour, adding a little water if necessary to the sauce. Taste – and if you wish and feel it necessary, add the brown sugar and mix.
Serve the TRADITIONAL SPANISH PORK FILLET WITH LEMON SAUCE with freshly boiled new potatoes or on a bed of long grain rice or couscous with a green salad on the side and please don´t forget your glass of gorgeous Spanish Wine!
