Pork fillet with dried figs: A recipe that will surprise you!

4 – 5 Servings


  • 4 pieces of pork fillet
  • 1 medium onion, finely chopped
  • 2 tbsp mustard
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • 1 tbsp dried grated thyme
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • Salt, pepper
  • 4 tbsp olive oil        
  • 15 dried figs
  • 200 ml red wine


Place the figs in a bowl and pour the wine over. Let them soak for about 1 hour.

Heat the olive oil in a shallow saucepan and fry the chopped onions, then fry the pieces of meat for 3 minutes on each side.

Add the mustard and then the cinnamon stick, thyme, salt and pepper.

Deglaze with the wine that has soaked the figs (it has also taken on the fig flavor), add the figs and simmer for about 10 minutes. The pork fillet should stay pink on the inside.

Finally add the honey and wait a few minutes for the honey to soak into the meat. Sprinkle with chopped parsley and sesame seeds. Serve with wild rice or potatoes.
