Ingredients

Olive Oil

2 teaspoons

Apple(s)

2 medium, red, cored and thinly sliced

Caster Sugar

½ teaspoons

Pork Fillet, Lean, raw

500 g, tenderloin, sliced

Sage, Dried

2 teaspoons, level

Onion(s)

1 medium, red, thinly sliced

Apple juice

300 ml, as purchased, unsweetened

Thyme, Fresh

3 sprig(s), Serve with green veg such as sugar snap peas, broccoli, spinach or green beans,

Instructions

  1. Heat 1 tsp olive oil in a large non-stick frying pan and add the apple slices, cooking them over a medium-high heat for about 2 minutes per side. Add the sugar and cook for another 1-2 minutes, until caramelised. Remove from the pan and set aside. Wipe out the pan with kitchen paper.
  2. Roll the pieces of pork fillet in the dried sage. Heat the remaining olive oil in the frying pan. Add the pork and cook over medium-high heat for 3-4 minutes, to brown. Add the red onion and cook for 2 more minutes, stirring occasionally.
  3. Pour in the apple juice and simmer for 10 minutes. The liquid should reduce down a little. Just before serving, add the apples and cook for 2 minutes until heated through.
  4. Season, then serve with lightly cooked green vegetables.
