pork fillet with sage and garlic

Succulent, pink and juicy, these pork fillets were cooked by the sous vide method. Hassle free and perfect for Christmas lunch!


Salt the pork fillets with approximately ½ a teaspoon per 450g (1lb). At this stage I sealed mine into a cryovac bag, however it’s possible to re-create this method using a very well sealed ziploc bag and expelling as much air as possible. The fillets should be cooked in a 60ºC (140ºF) water bath for 1 – 4 hours (also possible using a thermometer but needs more attention to keep the temperature even). When you’re ready to serve, remove the pork from the water bath. Heat some olive oil in a pan until very hot. Sear the fillets briefly on all sides then add a generous amount of sage leaves, some garlic and butter. If you have any liquid from the meat you can also strain this and add it to make a sauce. Serve immediately. I served mine with organic broccoli and carrots cooked with garlic, chilli and lemon.
