Spring onion pork tortilla bread toast

It’s hard to go wrong with pork fillet or tenderloin, a lean cut located between the leg and shoulder of a pig. There’s very little fat, so it goes well with most cooking methods and cooks quickly. Slice the toast into bite-size pieces as party snacks or go the whole hog—pun intended—and serve it as a main.
