Instructions

  1. Place 350ml stock and quinoa in a small saucepan and bring to the boil over high heat. Cover and cook over medium-low heat for 10-12 minutes. Remove from heat and stand, covered, for 5 minutes or until liquid has absorbed and quinoa is tender. Fluff up grains with a fork.
  2. Meanwhile, heat oil in a large non-stick frying pan over medium-high heat. Season pork with salt and pepper and cook for 2 minutes each side. Transfer to a plate.
  3. Add vinegar, honey, soy sauce and remaining chicken stock to pan. Bring to the boil over high heat. Reduce heat and simmer for 5 minutes or until reduced and syrupy. Return pork and any juices to pan and cook until heated through. Serve pork with quinoa and drizzle with sauce.
