Orange Glazed Pork Fillet with Veggies

Pork-fillet-with-orange-glaze-webStill on the orange theme here as the lovely oranges I was given last week are still going.  Orange glazed pork fillet with veggies is a good dinner for the whole family, it’s fairly straight forward to make and sounds just a little bit fancy.

I know that pork isn’t everyone’s cup of tea but if you do like it the fillet is a very lean cut and a good source of iron & protein.  The meal can be prepared in about 10 minutes (you can make the marinade the night before and then marinate it over night), cooking time is 40 minutes so with not a lot of fuss you can have a full roast meal with some great flavour.

I used a 500g fillet and that was enough to feed 2 adults & 2 kids.
