Pork, Fennel and Potato Salad
Pork, Fennel and Potato Salad
added by Every Day

Pork has a great affinity with fennel - the aniseedy note in the vegetable cuts the porky richness beautifully.

Directions

1. Trim the top and bottom from the fennel bulbs. Remove the tough outer layers and cut each bulb in half lengthways. Then place each half, cut-side down, on the board and cut into thick wedges, keeping a bit of the rooty base on each wedge if possible, as it will hold the layers together.

2. Heat the oil in a large frying pan, add the fennel with a pinch of salt and saute over a medium heat for 6-7 minutes, until tender and golden, or even a little tinged with brown.

3. Add the potatoes to the pan and fry for a few more minutes until they start to turn golden, then add the pork and fry, stirring a few times, until heated through. Squeeze over the lemon juice, season with salt and pepper to taste and scatter over the mint, if using. Serve straight away.
