Pork fillet is the most tender meat. Try our amazingly tasty, soft and flavorful pork fillet recipe. This is one of the saltimbocca versions. We also used basil and saffron with its splendid smell that gets stronger while frying. We stuffed each fillet piece with cheese and uncooked smoked sausage which gave an additional zest to the meat and created rich taste.
