Method

Inspired by the vinegar-based traditional potato salads of Bavaria, often made with onions or shallots, mustard and sprinkled with dill.   Usually served room temperature, but never hot.

  1. Mix together the pork marinade ingredients. Add the pork to a large plastic food bag, add the marinade, seal and leave for at least half an hour (or ideally overnight) in the fridge.
  2. Meanwhile, prepare the potato salad; gently mix all the ingredients together with the cooked potatoes.
  3. Heat a griddle pan over a high , reduce the heat to moderate and cook the pork medallions for 2 minutes on each side then serve with the potato salad.

Alex Mackay’s Baked King Edward, Spinach & Feta Pie Recipe

“This is the good King Edward’s twist on the Greek filo pastry pie Spanakopita. I love a playful recipe, my pie is nestled into the potato and I serve it in a pie dish but there is no pastry in sight. Bags of spinach vary greatly in size so any that you have leftover you could serve as a side salad or wilt with some garlic to serve with the pies.”
