From lovepork.co.uk

Cooking time: 40 minutes

Cooking skill: Easy



1lb lean British pork fillet

1 tbsp toasted sesame seeds


For the marinade:

1/8 cup white Miso paste

1/8 cup runny honey

1/8 cup Japanese mirin or rice wine vinegar

1 tsp toasted sesame oil

1 tbsp fresh ginger, peeled and grated or 2 tsp ginger purée

1 garlic clove, peeled or 1 tsp garlic paste


To serve:

Cooked egg noodles

Stir-fried vegetables



  1. In a small bowl, mix all the marinade ingredients together. Place the pork in a shallow dish, pour over the marinade and turn to coat. Cover and leave to marinate for at least 10 minutes or overnight in the fridge, if time allows.
  2. Preheat the oven 350°F, Gas Mark 4. Place the pork in a foil-lined small roasting tin, pour over the marinade, and roast in the oven for 25 – 30 minutes, basting occasionally with the marinade. Cook until the pork is caramelised but still juicy.
  3. Remove the fillet from the oven and allow to rest for 5 minutes, and cut into slices. Sprinkle with toasted sesame seeds and serve with noodles and stir-fried vegetables, drizzled with any juices from the roasting pan.
