Today I show you my pork fillet recipe with horseradish sauce.

On average, around 60 kilograms of meat and meat products of all kinds are consumed per capita in Germany every year.

Pork accounts for about two-thirds of that.

The most popular meat in Germany, pork, here in the fine version as pork tenderloin or pork fillet can be prepared easily and quickly.

If you buy your meat at the butcher and maybe even take the good organic meat, the meat is also nice and tender and leaves little water.

I wish you a lot of fun and good luck!

3. How to Properly Fry Pork Tenderloin

I fry the fillet pieces seasoned with salt and pepper in a pan with clarified butter briefly on both sides.

Then you can let the meat cook in the pan with a lid or wrapped in aluminum foil to relax a bit.

Further cooking is then done in vegetable stock or in the oven. Tip: pan is easier 🙂

4. Prepare sauce to pork fillet

I prepare the vegetable stock from fresh vegetables and some white wine.

I add garlic, a little salt, pepper and nutmeg.

Then I add cream and mix everything with a hand blender until frothy.

Bring the sauce to a boil, let it stand for 10 minutes, then strain through a sieve.

Optionally, you can thicken the sauce with cornstarch: To do this, add about 1 tsp of cornstarch to a little cold water and stir.

Bring the sauce to the boil and add the starch water until the desired binding is achieved.

Finally, add horseradish and cold butter and mix until frothy. Mhhh delicious 🙂
