  2. Split the pork fillet almost in half down its length, then open out like a book. Rub on all sides with the oil and smear with mustard. Grill for 15 mins, turning once, until the pork is browned and just cooked. Cover with foil, rest for 2 mins, then slice and serve with the cabbage.

This was really good but I wouldn't add the stock the next time. I would use more balsamic vinegar and just add water. I felt it didn't need the stock at all. Also, I let it cook for over an hour, found 40 minutes wasn't long enough.

I really enojyed this recipe I added a cinnamon stick to the cabbage and it tasted lovely. There was way too much cabbage for four, but i did keep it and use it another night it went nicely with a tuna steak.

The cabbage and pears were really nice, and smelt amazing when cooking because of the ginger! However, as is usual with any red cabbage dish I ever make, there was far too much cabbage (probably enough for 8 people). I used a whole, small red cabbage - perhaps half would have been sufficient!

This was a big hit with my family - absolutely yummy. My kids won't eat pickled red cabbage and were a bit dubious about trying this, but they did and loved it. The pear and cabbage go really well together and I would do this as a vegetable dish to serve with other things too. Highly recommended!
