Pork with prunes, noodles and green salad recipe
Pork with prunes, noodles and green salad
Many people consider pork a fatty meat. Not true - especially when you choose ultra-lean pork fillet. The B vitamins make pork particularly helpful for those with stress problems, and B6 together with zinc helps control the symptoms of PMS. The prunes are here not only because they give such a deliciously sweet flavour but because they are one of the most protective foods against cancer. (Serves 4)

Ready-to-eat prunes: 50g
Unsalted butter: 75g
Onion: 1 medium, finely chopped
Red wine: 2 glasses
