Rosemary Crusted Pork Fillet with Goat's Cheese Dauphinoise Potatoes and Roasted Vegetables




Pre-heat the oven to 200C/400F/Gas6

Roll the pork fillet in flour and then in a beaten egg.
Now roll it into some breadcrumbs that have been seasoned with salt and pepper and a little freshly chopped rosemary.

Then drizzle the fillets with a little oil and roast in the oven until cooked right through. (approx 40 mins.

For the vegetables:

I roasted some vegetables - red and brown onions, red and yellow pepper's, aubergine (eggplant) and courgettes (zucchini) in oil and a little balsamic vinegar.
Season with salt and pepper to taste.

For the Goat's Cheese Dauphinoise :
I used 4 medium sized potatoes - peeled and sliced to about 1mm thick.
2 crushed garlic cloves - finely chopped
3 shallots - finely chopped
270ml double cream
50ml milk
25g butter
170g goats cheese - crumbled
And about a half handful of grated mozzarella that I had in the fridge and needed to use up!

What I did next:

Put the butter in a fry pan and fried the shallots and garlic over a low heat until soft.
I then stirred in the cream and milk then when it had heated through I added the sliced potatoes, then seasoned with salt and pepper.

After about 10 minutes on a low heat I transferred the potatoes to an oiled dish (one that can go into the oven).
I did one layer of potato mixture and a layer of goat's cheese. Finish off with the potato mixture and sprinkle the rest of the goat's cheese (and mozzarella if you happen to have any).

Cover the dish with foil and put it into the oven to cook for about 20 minutes before you put in the pork and the roasted vegetables. These potatoes will take about 1 hour in the oven in total.

After 20 minutes remove the foil so the potatoes go nice and brown on top.

I then put the pork and the potatoes on the middle shelf and the vegetables on the top - then swapped as necessary (to what was cooking quicker)!

After about 40 minutes the pork was cooked through so I removed it and let it rest before cutting with a sharp knife into slices.
By that time the rest of the dinner was ready to serve.
