Method

  1. Heat grill to high. Grate the zest from half the lemon and squeeze the juice from both halves. Split the pork fillet down the centre, cutting almost all the way through, and open out like a book. Lift onto a baking tray and season with salt, pepper and the lemon zest. Sprinkle with 1 tbsp of the sage. Grill for 8-10 mins, turning once, until cooked through.
  2. Meanwhile, pour the lemon juice into a small pan. Add the apple to the pan with the remaining sage, sugar, salt and pepper. Bring to the boil, stirring, then simmer until soft, about 6 mins. Serve with your favourite green veg and potato wedges (recipe, top right).

Gorgeous! Never really knew what to do with tenderloin before! Made this for 2 so used half the quantity of tenderloin but kept the quantities of everything else the same and was perfect for 2. Served with wasabi mash (from the soy tuna and wasabi mash recipe) and loved the way all the flavours worked together. I can't wait to have this again!

Made this tonight, but used pork loin chops instead. Was really yummy, and the apple on the side was a really good accompaniment. Served it with steamed green beans and roast parsnips, which complimented the pork well.

I made this as a roast. The potato wedges needed another 10 mins.
I loved all the flavours.
