The beauty of this kind of food is that the prep is quick, and while the food is cooking you can get on with other things, hence why I would cook something like this even mid week. If you’re not a garlic lover, you can always just leave the garlic out and make normal creamed potatoes without it. Also, today I’ve had to improvise with my pork dish a little bit, as something that’s completely unheard of in my kitchen happened: I had run out of not even one, but two ingredients without replacing them! The recipe below is for how I normally make it. This should be enough for 3-4 portions. I served mine with fried black trumpet mushrooms and fresh tomato and cucumber salad, covered with a splash of balsamic vinegar.
5-6 medium potatoes, sliced (I have a beautiful, brand new blender so this was done within 30 seconds)
2 -3 cloves of garlic
2-3dl double cream
1. Layer sliced potatoes, garlic, salt and pepper, then pour over the cream.
2. Cook in preheated oven 180°C for 1,5 hours, until potato is soft.
Roast loin of pork
500g loin fillet of pork
1. Massage the mustard all over the pork fillet.
2. Sprinkle with salt, pepper, ginger and rosemary.
3. Roast in the oven 180°C /355°F for about 40 minutes. Juices coming out of the pork should be clear.
4. Take out of the oven, cover with foil and let rest for 10 minutes before cutting.
5. I also use the cooking juices as the jus for the dish.
