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.

Nice and tasty. Substituted damson jam for redcurrent jelly and white wine vinegar for the red wine vinegar. It was delicious.

I made this last night for my hubby and two young children (2 & 7) and it was delicious. I took the advice from other comments and used only 2 apples, I also did not have any red wine vinegar so replaced this with red wine! You may also need more time than the 3 minutes each side for your pork, I certainly did they were still raw in the middle! Delicious with veggies and good homemade mash-excellent dish!

Lovely and easy, will halve the quantity of apples though, a little too much. Flavours really nice and definitely a "do again"!

Made this for my boyfriend, he really enjoyed it although thought there was a little bit too much apple. Might try it with part apple and part apricot next time.

Fantastic!

I can't believe how quick and easy this was to make and just how good it tasted.

Will definitely make this again soon.
