Ingredients for 2 servings:

1 shallot

60 ml white wine

1 clove(s)

1 bay leaf

1 pinch(s) salt and pepper

150 g butter

1 clove of garlic

150 ml milk

100 ml cream


4 pork medallions, approx. 65 g each

Total time approx. 1 hour 45 minutes

Difficulty: Normal


Bring the milk, cream and crushed garlic to a boil in a saucepan. Season with salt, nutmeg and pepper.

Wash and peel the potatoes and slice them thinly. Add potatoes to the hot liquid, mix well and place the mixture in a suitable baking dish. Bake in a preheated oven for about 45 minutes at 160 °C (convection) until golden.

Clean and peel the asparagus. Place together with the butter on a piece of aluminum foil (glossy side inside), season with sugar, salt and pepper and fold into a packet.

Bake for 40 – 45 minutes at 160 °C. (A little tip: If several portions of asparagus are prepared, it cooks better if it is placed in several packets in the oven.)

Clarify the butter, i.e. heat it in a saucepan until it is liquid, then strain through a sieve with a kitchen towel and thus remove the whey.

Heat white wine vinegar, white wine, clove, bay leaf, shallot in coarse pieces, pepper and salt in a saucepan and let it reduce slightly. Beat the reduction with the egg yolks in a water bath until foamy/creamy. Be careful, not too hot, otherwise there will be scrambled eggs! Slowly add the clarified butter, stirring constantly. Season to taste.

Fry the meat in a pan on each side and bake in the oven at 160 °C about 10 minutes until done. Season to taste.

Serve: Place potato gratin on the plate in a pleasing way. Put the asparagus next to it. Arrange the fillets on top of the asparagus and add the sauce Hollandaise.

Enjoy your meal!

Note: If you don’t want to use aluminum foil, you can use a baking dish with a lid. Recommended for ecological and health reasons.
