Story Behind this Recipe
If you use pork belly you have do pre-cooking or draining the fat but you don't need to do it in this recipe. The pork fillets are more easily available than pork legs, tongues or cheeks. An easy but very luxurious dish.
When you cook meat it will shrink. If you slice the pork fillet too thin, it'll be hard to make it look like a dish from a bistro! I heated the onion beforehand in a microwave so you need just 10 minutes to fry the onion nicely browned. The cooking time shown here is a rough estimate. Adjust the time according to the pot you will use or the heat.
