Pork fillet medallions with a light balsamic vinegar sauce
Ingredients (for 4 people)
- 12 pork fillet medallions, about 1 cm thick
- 12 slices Bündnerfleisch or coppa
- 4 sprigs of rosemary
- 2 tablespoons cooking fat
- 1 dl Marsala
- 1 dl balsamic vinegar
- 2 dl good quality white wine
- A drop of meat extract
- 75 g butter
- Salt and freshly ground pepper
Method (Preparation time: 20 minutes, recipe takes approx. 15 minutes)
Season both sides of the pork fillet medallions with salt and pepper. Garnish one side with a little rosemary and a slice of Bündnerfleisch or coppa and join with cocktail sticks. Pre-heat the oven to 80°C.
Heat the butter in a frying pan, sear the fillets at high heat for a short while (about 1 ½ minutes), arrange on the pre-heated plate and place in the oven for 15 minutes.
Deglaze the meat juices with the Marsala, reduce slightly and pour through a fine sieve into a small saucepan. Add Balsamic vinegar and reduce by half over a low heat. Add white wine and meat extract and the remaining sprigs of rosemary and reduce by half again. Turn down to a simmer and add a curl or two of butter. Season the juice with salt and pepper and pour over the medallions.
