Garlic, Ginger & Chilli Pork Fillet

As I mentioned in my last post, I’m currently on a low-carb, low-calorie diet. Pork fillet is a great cut of meat for such a diet as it’s super lean and reasonably priced. It is, however, fairly bland so it’s a good idea to marinade it.



Pork fillet – 1lb/450g (cut in half)

Garlic – 4 cloves (crushed)

Root ginger – c. 1 inch (peeled and sliced into matchsticks)

Vinegar (cider vinegar is great with pork but ordinary is fine) – 2 tablespoons

Chilli flakes – a couple of teaspoons (depending on how hot you like it)

Honey – 1 tablespoon

Soy sauce – 1 tablespoon


  1. In an oven-proof dish marinate the pork with all the ingredients but the soy sauce for as long as possible, turning every so often.
  2. Thirty to sixty minutes before cooking remove the pork from the fridge, add the soy sauce and coat well, cover with foil.
  3. Cook in a preheated oven at 200°C/Fan 180°/Gas 6 for approx. 30 minutes, or until cooked through. 10 minutes before the end of the cooking time, remove the foil and baste.
