Method

  1. Boil the rice in plenty of water, following pack instructions, until cooked. Drain, return to the pot and cover to keep warm.
  2. Meanwhile, sprinkle the meat on all sides with the black pepper and some salt. Heat 1 tbsp of the oil in a large frying pan. Sear the meat on both sides until nicely browned. Remove from the pan.
  3. Add the remaining oil and the onion to the pan. Cook for 5 mins, then pour in the vinegar and let reduce for 1 min. Stir in the maple syrup, then return the pork to the pan and heat for 5 mins until cooked through. Serve the pork and sauce spooned over the rice and scattered with the parsley.

Very nice, made for 2 but kept the sauce the same quantity. Next time I will make it with chicken breast.

Made this but we felt it was lacking something, or it was trying to be something that it wasn't. Certainly would not make it again.

Cooked the pork on the barbecue just for a bit more flavor in the meat, and made the sauce separately - tasted great!
