Method

  1. Dust the pork steaks with the Chinese five-spice powder. Heat half the oil in a frying pan and fry the pork for about 3 mins on each side until browned and cooked through. Transfer to a plate.
  2. Add the remaining oil to the frying pan, reduce the heat slightly, then fry the onion wedges for 2 mins. Add the apples and cook, stirring occasionally, for another 3 mins.
  3. Add the redcurrant jelly to the pan, followed by the vinegar and then the stock. Bring to the boil and simmer rapidly, uncovered, for 8-10 mins until the sauce is slightly syrupy and the apples are tender. Gently reheat the pork in the sauce, turning to glaze each side.

This was really nice! Used 3 apples instead of 4 and served with creamy mash and green beans. All the family loved it!

Absolutely delicious! I used cranberry sauce instead of the jelly and it made a great substitute. Will be cooking as a dinner party main for our guests!

Delicious!! I loved it so much that I think I ate it all. Four apples are not many if you want to have with your starchy complement a rich sauce.

My partner and I, don't particularly like pork as it can be a bit bland, however, I made this for us tonight, (didn't have any redcurrant jelly, so substituted with cranberry) and it was absolutely delicious, he said he would definately eat it again.

Really enjoyed this meal, I would say that in my dish the sauce dried up before softening the apples to my taste, I like them soft (others who were with me thought the apples were fine) but other than that it was great!

I decided at the last minute to give this a go. I didn't have Five Spice or Chicken stock so substituted a pork seasoning with sage, onion & apple & beef stock. Reasonably quick & very easy to make. The pork was very tasty & everyone loved it; the children weren't too keen on the apples though. I did think they could have been a bit softer but all in all a hit. Will make this again but as the recipe states next time.

So easy and so tasty! Used Thai Seven Spice as didn't have the Chinese 5 spice and turned out really tasted. Thickened with a bit of cornflour and served with some brown rice. Just delicious!

Really enjoyed this dish. Would add more spice to the actual juice next time.

I'm giving 3 stars because we all agreed that the five spice was a little strange/strong, but the sauce/veg was lovely. I used 2 green apples and 1 red, and I added a red pepper. It was lovely and colourful. I didn't have red wine vinegar so used rice vinegar, and I used raspberry and jalapeno jam instead of redcurrant jelly. it added a subtle but nice kick. I think I'll try it again but without the five spice.
