Mrs Gerald Leach’s recipes for fillets of pork.
Chop each soaked but uncooked prune into about 8 pieces. Mix with the breadcrumbs and the onion in its butter. Season, using plenty of pepper.
Trim the pork fillets and cut across in halves. Split each half longways, and spread the centres with the prune filling, closing like sandwiches. Rub with seasoned flour and place in a flat ovenproof dish. Just melt remaining butter and pour over. Bake closely covered for 20 minutes at 350° F., gas mark 4. Uncover and bake for a further 10 minutes, so that the tops are lightly browned. At this point, pour off the butter and juices into a small saucepan, and while the fillets brown, make the sauce, by stirring into the butter
