    Chop the green olives finely. 
    Mix the cheese and olives together in a small bowl along with the balsamic vinegar, season with some ground Italian spice. 
    Cut a slit in the pork fillets lengthways- to form a pocket, put your fingers inside and push outwards to make the cavity bigger. 
    Lay one piece of ham into each of the fillets and push in, divide the cheese mixture between the two and put in the fillets, on top of the ham - now cover the cheese mixture with another slice of ham, push in the sides.
