Tzatziki with pork tenderloin, red onion and tomato salad


300g of pork tenderloin

100g Greek yoghurt

1 small cucumber

2 cloves of garlic, crushed

1tsp of white wine vinegar

tbsp extra virgin olive oil

1tsp of toasted ground cumin

1 small red onion

1 medium red tomato

1tsp of dried oregano

Sea salt and pepper


Trim any excess fat from the tenderloin and cut it into 1cm thick discs; put to one side.

Grate the cucumber using the coarse holes on a box grater, sprinkle with some salt and place in a colander to get rid of excess water.

Finely slice the red onion and tomato and season with olive oil, oregano, salt and pepper. Leave the salad in a bowl to marinate.

To make the tzatziki, squeeze the grated cucumber with your palms and transfer to a new bowl. Add the yoghurt, crushed garlic, vinegar, olive oil and season with salt and pepper and let it sit for a while.

To serve, place a non-stick pan over high heat. Season the pork with the cumin, salt, pepper and a drizzle of olive oil. When the pan is hot add the pork and cook on both sides until lovely and brown. This will not take more than 2-3 minutes in total.

Spread the tzatziki on a plate and arrange the pork fillets over the top. Sprinkle the tomato and onion salad over this and serve.
