Cut the pork fillet into 50g portions. Cover a wooden board with clingwrap and top with a piece of the fillet (round, cut side facing upwards). Cover the pork with another piece of clingwrap and, using a rolling pin, beat until thin and flat and resembling a schnitzel.

Dust the pork fillets with flour and season well.

Heat the butter and oil in a large, heavy-based frying pan that will accommodate all four escalopes.

Fry the escalopes for 1–2 minutes on one side, turn and fry for another 1–2 minutes on the other side. Add the capers, sherry and red wine vinegar and allow it to bubble up. Remove from the heat, stir through the parsley and serve immediately.

Tip of the day

Carving meat
Always allow your roast to rest for 5 to 15 minutes before carving so that the juices can be reabsorbed and the meat presents an even surface when sliced. Use a short- or long-bladed knife, and a two-pronged carving fork with a guard. To prevent the meat from losing juice, steady it with the flat of the fork, rather than piercing.
