How to make a sirloin with cheese sauce . Cooking dishes that everyone likes at home does not have to be a synonym for a lot of work or too much expense.

We can prepare very simple meat recipes with easy-to-find and inexpensive ingredients, and get top-notch dishes. In my opinion, today’s recipe is a clear example, a classic roquefort pork tenderloin with potatoes .

We can prepare this meat in multiple ways, from a Wellington sirloin to baking it in the traditional style accompanied with a garnish of ratatouille vegetables , going through grilling it and accompanying it with some type of homemade sauce.

Before starting with the pork tenderloins

  1. We clean the sirloins of possible remains of skin or fat that they may have and cut into rather thick medallions, 1.5 or 2 cm. thick.
  2. In a frying pan, heat 2 or 3 tablespoons of olive oil and sauté the seasoned meat. I prefer not to cook it too much since it could stay hard, it will continue cooking later with the sauce. We reserve.
  3. The choice of potatoes is essential, as this dish wants to go well accompanied.
  4. Potatoes are not all the same for frying, it depends on the amount of starch they contain. In supermarkets they already sell special potatoes for frying. I recommend an old Galician potato if possible, the new ones have a lot of starch.
  5. Peel the potatoes and chop them in a bakery (in thin slices), in sticks (in long strips) or in quarters, choose the size that you like the most.
  6. We must try to make them all more or less the same, especially thick, so that they are made equally.
  7. Then we wash them well in a bowl until cold water to remove the starch for about 5 minutes and dry with a cotton cloth. We reserve.

  2. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly for 3 or 4 minutes, until the cheese has melted.
  3. We incorporate the meat that we have reserved.
  4. Stew for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the sauce has concentrated with all the juices and flavors.
  5. At the same time that we prepare the meat (even a little earlier, since it takes a little longer) in another pan.
  6. We heat extra virgin olive oil and begin to fry the potatoes that we have reserved.
  7. We must cook them over low heat for about 15 minutes, after that time we raise the temperature to the maximum, at about 180º C, and fry it until they are golden brown, watching so that they do not burn.
  8. In this way we will create a crispy layer with which we will get perfect potato chips. constantly so they don’t burn.
  9. We serve the sirloins very hot. For the plating, we serve with the fried potatoes in cubes or in strips, we sauce on top, to the taste of each one.
