Free Range Pork From Morley Butchers
Our pork is absolutely, totally free range pork sourced from Blythburgh Free Range Pork. Their pigs are born outside and spend their entire lives outdoors in the fresh air, with freedom to roam in large paddocks, rooting around in sandy Suffolk soil. By growing at a much slower, more natural rate their pork acquires a deeper flavour and succulence.

Cooking Method For Glazed Pork Fillet
Mix all the marinade ingredients together in a bowl. Place the pork in a shallow dish, pour over the marinade and turn to ensure it is coated all over. Cover and leave to marinate for at least 15 minutes or overnight in the fridge.
Preheat the oven 180°C/350°F/Gas Mark 4. Place the pork in a small roasting tin, pour over the marinade, then roast in the oven for 25–30 minutes. Baste occasionally with the marinade and cook until the pork is caramelised but still juicy.
Remove from the oven and allow to rest for 5 minutes, then cut into slices. Sprinkle with toasted sesame seeds and serve.
This dish will work well with other oriental ingredients such as noodles and stir-fried vegetables, drizzled with any juices from the roasting pan.
