Pork fillet with a creamy mushroom and sweet wine sauce, I love pork and although some people might be freaked out by this, we have pork at least once or twice a month. My favorite cut has always been the neck chop, but when I want something a little bit more formal, my choice of pork is fillet. It has no visible fat, good for portion control and I think very good value for money.

Pork fillet with a creamy mushroom and sweet wine sauce. I am catering for two big functions again this weekend so there is no time for elaborate recipes. Pork fillet  is ideal, because it cooks super fast and gives you just enough time to make this lovely Mushroom sauce.


Pork Fillet with creamy mushroom sauce

Ingredients (4 servings)

800gr pork fillet – trimmed and cut into portion sizes (4x200gr)
any rub of choice – I used a garlic, herb and pepper rub
a little salt
olive oil

Preheat oven to 180C.
Sprinkle the rub on a piece of plastic wrap and roll the fillet in the rub until evenly coated.Heat a skillet until smoking hot, add the olive oil and brown the pieces of fillet on all sides. Finish cooking the fillet in the preheated oven for about 10-12 minutes(no raw pork for me!) No make the sauce!


250g white mushrooms – cleaned and sliced
1/2 cup white wine
2 Tbsp sweet wine
salt and pepper to taste
15ml cornstarch
250ml cream or non-dairy “cream”

After you have removed the fillet from the skillet, de-glaze the pan with the white wine. Add the mushrooms and cook for about 5 minutes. Mix the corn starch with a little water and then with the cream. Add to the pan and stir. If the sauce is too thick add a dash more wine. Season with salt and pepper and finally add the sweet wine. Mix keep aside. When the fillets have cooked, slice and serve on a bed of fluffy mashed potatoes and spoon over the sauce. I served sauteed leeks with my meal!

    You won my heart when you said “pork”. I love pork and like you I think the neck chop is the best.
    I heard yesterday that port fillet has less fat than salmon! So it is health food that tastes great.
    As for value for money, you can seldom beat pork for that – imagine trying this with beef – you would need a second bond!

    For a while there was a huge American ad campaign pushing “Pork: The Other White Meat.” I think that really helped people to see the health benefits in pork.

    I’m not freaking out that you eat pork twice a month. Seems normal to me. Pork is so versartile and this looks wonderful. Take it easy , but glad to see you are busy!

    Your pork with mushrooms sounds great and your pictures are gorgeous. What kind of sweet wine did you use? Sometimes we use sweet vermouth in recipes with good success.

    I know this thread is long dead, but I ended up here and so might other people, so I'll add an observation: the cornstarch isn't really necessary. Cream is already a good consistency and you can thicken it if you need to by cooking it down.
