Recipe By: Burratina (https://cookbuzz.com/kitchen/342)
Serves 2 Prep: 10 min Cook: 15 min

Ingredients

Pork fillets 200-250g
Salt & pepper as required
Mozzarella cheese 1
Olive oil as required
Garlic 1 clove
Cherry tomatoes 10-20
Basil leaves 3-4
Dried chilli 1

Method

1
Cut the pork fillet into 4 slices and season with salt & pepper. Put some olive oil in a frying pan on medium heat and fry the fillets until brown on both sides.
2
When the pork is almost cooked (4 minutes in total), put a slice of mozzarella cheese on top and fry for a further 2 minutes.
3
Transfer the pork to an oven tray and put in a preheated oven 180C for 5-6 minutes. In the meantime, make the salsa:
4
Put 2 tbsp olive oil in a frying pan or saucepan and add the finely chopped garlic. Now turn the heat on to medium.
5
Add the cherry tomatoes or tinned tomatoes and the chopped dried chilli and simmer. Add 2-3 pinches of salt and a pinch of pepper.
6
When the salsa is reduced, add the ripped basil leaves and turn the heat off. Add 2 tbsp olive oil and stir in.
7
Remove the pork from the oven and transfer to a serving dish. Pour over the salsa from Step 6 before serving.

Tips & Note

If you use tinned tomatoes, half the salsa will remain so keep for another dish. It will stay in the fridge for one week.
