A slice of this pretty pork roll is like a slice of sunshine on your plate. Pork and pineapple surprisingly works great together.The fresh, fruity and sweet flavours of the filling make the perfect accompaniment to lean pork, making it a dish with a difference. It would make an impressive main if you have guests over, or want to try your hand at a new recipe, but its also best served cold as part of a salad.


  • 500g piece pork fillet, trimmed of fat
  • 1tbsp freshly chopped thyme
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 150g fresh or canned pineapple, finely chopped
  • 1 large red pepper, deseeded and finely chopped
  • 8 rashers smoked streaky bacon
  • Fresh thyme to garnish

For a more savoury filling, replace the pineapple with chopped finely courgette or green pepper.


  1. Pre-heat oven to 190C/375F/Fan 170C/Gas Mark 5. Wash and pat dry the pork fillet. Slice the fillet lengthwise to within 1cm of the other side. Place on a board and flatten with a meat mallet or cling film wrapped rolling pin, to a thickness of about 6mm.
  2. Season the pork with salt and pepper and sprinkle over the chopped thyme. Mix the pineapple and pepper together and spread down the centre of the pork and roll up.
  3. Carefully wrap the bacon around the pork, overlapping the slices to help hold the pork together, and then tie with clean pieces of string to secure. Place in a roasting tin and bake for 35-40 mins until tender and cooked through. Leave to cool, then wrap and chill for at least 2hrs.
  4. To serve, discard the string, and cut into chunky slices. Garnish with fresh thyme and serve with salad vegetables.
