Influenced by Bavarian cuisine, this potato salad finds the delicious flavours of pork, potato and an abundance of seasoning combine to create a fresh summer dish.


For this recipe, pre-boil the potatoes and allow to cool. Chop roughly and set aside.

Make the potato salad by mixing all the ingredients and stirring through the cooled, chopped potatoes. Set aside.

Mix all ingredients to make the pork marinade. Add the pork to a sandwich bag, add the marinade and leave for at least half an hour (ideally overnight).

Heat a griddle pan over a high heat and cook the medallions for 2 minutes each side. Serve with the potato salad.
