Pork Tenderloin with Apple Sauce
Liven-up pork with this juicy marinade. Serve with a tablespoon of sweet apple sauce & a helping of veggies.
- 4 pork tenderloin steaks
- 2 tbsp dark soy sauce
- 1 tbsp honey
- 1/2 tsp Chinese 5 spice
- 1 clove of garlic, crushed
- 1 tbsp sunflower oil
- 1 tbsp sesame oil
- 3 Pink Lady Apples, peeled, cored and diced
- Zest of one lime
- Juice of one lime
- 3 tbsp water
- 1 red chilli, finely diced
- 1/8 tsp dried chilli flakes (optional)
- 2-3 tbsp chopped corriander
- 1 tsp flat parsley, chopped
- Mix together the ingredients for the marinade. Place the pork in a flat dish and massage the marinade into the pork. Cover and leave in the fridge for a minimum of 30 minutes (you could leave overnight if you wish).
- To make the apple compote, put the apples, lime zest, juice and water into a small saucepan. Cover with a lid and allow to soften for 10 to 15 minutes. Transfer to a liquidiser and process until smooth.
- Allow to cool and then add the remaining ingredients to the compote. Season with salt and pepper.
- To cook the pork, pre-heat the oven to 200C / 400F / Gas Mark 6. Heat a griddle until smoking and then place the pork steaks onto the griddle. Leave for 40 seconds and then turn 90 degrees to get a criss-cross effect.
- Turn the pork over and repeat again. Transfer to the oven and bake for 5 minutes.
