Method

  1. Season the flour and dust the pork slices. Heat the oil in a large frying pan, then cook the pork for 3-4 mins each side until browned and cooked through. Transfer to a plate and set aside.

  2. Add the red onion wedges to the pan and fry for 5-8 mins until soft and starting to turn golden. Stir in the stock, cranberry sauce and honey and simmer for 10 mins. Return the pork with any resting juices and gently cook for 1-2 mins until hot through. Serve with some mash or jacket potatoes and vegetables.

This recipe is really delicious! I had some homemade cranberry sauce leftover from Christmas, and was searching GF for ways to use it up and stumbled upon this one. At first glance, the ingredients list may look short, but I can heartily recommend trying this dish. The flavours from the cranberry, honey and stock compliment the pork beautifully. I served this with sweet potato mash and steamed greens.

Cooked this recipe last night. We had all of the ingredients at home. My wife loved every bit . Slightly tweeked it added pistachio and mushrooms and had roasties instead of mash french beans and juliet carroots. Absolute winner. Will definatley do this again.

Lovely, quick mid-week meal. Goes very well with mash. There's no real need to flour the pork, but it doesn't lose anything if you do.

Used pork tenderloin, ordinary onions and small amount of strawberry jam as that was what was to hand. The result was lovely. Delicious flavours and good texture.

This was great. Reduced the amount for two adults and a toddler. I cut two red onions into smaller chunks, fried for a bit, and added mushrooms like a lot of people above. I used half a khorrs chicken stock pot and two spoons of the cranberry sauce, then added stock by eye and chucked in the pork, and turned the heat down. It thickened really nicely. I left out the honey as it tasted sweet enough. The sauce complimented the red onions really well, I'm glad I cooked them a little longer and cut them smaller. Toddler ate all except the onions once she got used to the taste. Husband requested double next time so he could stuff a baguette the next day (with rocket)!

Superb sauce which I'll make again but pork was chewy. If I try cooking it again I will bash the steaks as someone else has done.

I just wondered why this recipe cannot be frozen?
