  1. Heat 2 teaspoons oil in a large non-stick frying pan over high heat. Season pork with salt and pepper and cook for 3 minutes each side or until cooked to your liking. Transfer to a plate. Cover pork with foil and set aside to rest for 2–3 minutes before thinly slicing.
  2. Meanwhile, combine shaved fennel and apple in a large bowl. Add vinegar, juice and remaining oil and toss to coat.

Notes

SERVING SUGGESTION: Wholegrain bread. TIPS: Try and buy pork medallions that are roughly the same size and thickness to ensure even cooking. Prepare the fennel and apple just before using as the cut edges will turn brown when exposed to air. Add it: 60g soft goat’s cheese (crumbled) in Step 3. Swap it: Pork for skinless lean chicken breast fillets (halved).
