Pork Fillet Stroganoff

This Pork Fillet Stroganoff is the perfect midweek meal. Quick, easy and really delicious, a recipe the whole family will enjoy. 

Adapting a Mary Berry classic 

This Pork Fillet Stroganoff is my adaptation of a Mary Berry recipe. Mary Berry makes a proper stroganoff which includes the traditional ingredients of mushrooms and onions. These are really not for me, so in my version I completely left them out! Also, I tweaked the other ingredients to make it more to my taste. I do realise this is risky as Mary Berry knows a thing of two, but I always think recipes should be adapted to your personal tastes.

I have also increased the amount of meat per portion. When I made it with the amount of pork the recipe suggested, there really wasn’t much pork. Before you panic, that doesn’t make this recipe a lot more expensive because you can get really good tenderloin at good prices these days. But obviously feel free to use less pork or use this amount to serve more people. 

Advantages of Pork Fillet Stroganoff 

The first advantage of this Pork Fillet Stroganoff is just how quick and easy it is. It really is a dish that you can come home after a day at work and make in easily less than 30 minutes. It is also something a little bit different which makes it even nicer I think!

Another reason I like this recipe so much is that it uses soured cream. I always have soured cream in my house because my husband is obsessed with fajitas so we have them all the time. But we always seem to have half a pot of soured cream left in the fridge. This recipe is great for using up that left over soured cream for me. I also don’t tend to measure out the soured cream I add, I just add enough to create a nice amount of sauce. I would use the amount below as a guide, but don’t be afraid to add more if you want. Also be aware the longer you leave it to cook once the soured cream has been added, the more the sauce with almost thicken and therefore not seem like there is as much. 

Can I make this recipe healthier?

Pork tenderloin is a very lean cut of meat. This means it is already quite healthy as there is very little fat on the pork. You can make this recipe with reduced fat soured cream and it still tastes as good but the sauce won’t be as thick and it might look a little split. If you’re making it for yourself and don’t mind how it looks then this would be fine but if you’re making it for guests then I would recommend making it with full fat soured cream because it does look better!

I usually serve this Pork Fillet Stroganoff with potatoes and vegetables, but you could also have it with rice or mashed potatoes as Mary Berry suggests.
