Make sure you do all your chopping and preparation before you start adding things to the frying pan


  • 40g dried porcini mushrooms
  • I onion thinly sliced
  • 2 cloves of garlic, crushed
  • 750g pork fillet, cut into slim strips
  • A pinch of cayenne pepper 
  • 1 tablespoon paprika 
  • 3 tablespoons brandy 
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard 
  • 200ml sour cream
  • 150ml chicken stock or water 
  • A squeeze of lemon juice 
  • Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • I tablespoon chopped parsley


  1. Cover the porcini mushrooms with at least 300ml hot water and leave to soak for about 30 mins.
  2. Heat a large frying pan with a drop of olive oil and gently sauté the onion for about 5 mins.
  3. Add the garlic and pork, frying for a couple of minutes.
  4. Strain the mushrooms, reserving 200ml of the liquid, and add the mushrooms to the pan.
  5. Cook for a couple of minutes before stirring in the cayenne and paprika.
  6. Then pour in the brandy, allowing the flame to flambé to burn off the alcohol. This is easy with a gas flame because all you need to do is tilt the pan towards the flame. If you are using an electric hob, hold a lit match to one edge of the pan and it will flambé.
  7. Stir in mustard, sour cream, reserved porcini liquid and chicken stock or water.
  8. Bring to simmer, cook for 5 minutes.
  9. Squeeze in lemon juice, season and scatter with parsley.
