Pork & Cabbage - a match made in foodie heaven!

Here is another carb-light, yet pretty special, week-end dinner.

I used some pork fillet for this dish - it's a real crowd pleaser when cooked with mushrooms, a bit of mustard, capers and cream. I fried some savoy cabbage with garlic, chilli, smokey bacon & red onion in some yummy Kalamata Olive Oil - the combination is dynamite!
