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.

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 thought this was awful I had some lovely pork medallions to use too.. I don't think I did anything wrong but felt that there was too much stock. I will not be trying this again, but if I did I would make the sauce thicker. Also I didn't like the onions in quarters it looked wrong.

Made this a few times now. Substituted tenderloin for pork steaks sliced up and bashed thinner. Have also used redcurrant jelly instead of cranberry and was still lovely but didn't need the honey

YUM YUM! Made with pork steaks for hubby and quorn fillets for me. Added a splash of red wine, but otherwise followed recipe as it was and really enjoyed. Made it with the "winter root veg mash with crispy topping" recipe from this site. Delicious! Will definitely make again.

Made this with a lovely piece of pork loin that happen to defrost with a power cut and i needed a quick and very easy recipe.

This is so lovely although sweet, a small amount of salt and pepper can even it off, served it with boiled rice.

I would make this again. Yummy!!!
