Pork you very much...time for another porky dish.
I was the epitome of sloth today...I had to muster up energy just to change clothes this morning. Luckily, tonight's dinner was going to be quick with very little hands on work. Thank God.
2x 300g pork loin
1 egg, lightly beaten
2 puff pastry sheets
2 tbs quince paste
salt & pepper
Preheat oven to 200C. Season pork and fry in oil in pan til lightly browned.
Spread 1tbs quince paste on each sheet of puff pastry. Wrap pork in puff pastry, seal edges and brush with egg. Place on baking sheet covered tray and place in oven for 20mins or until pastry is golden brown. Serves 4.
ease: 5/5. Brown the pork, wrap in pastry, bung in the oven - simple.
prep time: 5mins to season and brown pork and spread pastry with quince paste.
cooking time: 20mins in the oven - I took mine out a little earlier as the pastry had already browned - the pork was well done, would take it out even earlier next time so it's still a little pink.
total: 25mins. Only 5mins hands on work though.
taste: 3.5/5.It does need more than 1tbs per sheet otherwise it lacks on flavour. The pastry was Ryan's favourite part - I think he'd eat a shoe if I wrapped it in puff pastry. I served mine with steamed green beans and a walnut, goats curd and spinach salad.
would I make it again: Yes. Ryan loved it, especially the pastry. The other boys didn't care for it much, but they still ate it.
