  1. Heat the oil in a large frying pan and briefly cook the garlic, stirring with a wooden spoon, to start it softening. Add the pork to the pan in a single layer, season and cook for 6 mins each side, until golden and cooked through.
  2. Meanwhile, mix the stock with the thyme and marmalade. Remove the pork from the pan and set aside briefly to rest on a warm plate. Pour off any oil from the pan, then pour in the marmalade mixture and bubble to make a sauce. Return the pork to the pan, coat in the sauce and serve with quick-cooking vegetables like baby potatoes, spinach and peas.

Yum! Browned the meat first, then set aside to cook onions and garlic. Added black pepper and thyme, stirred for a minute then put in about 1 tbsp of flour and stirred some more. Poured in the stock and marmalade cooked to thicken then returned the meat to the pan and squeezed the juice from a fresh orange. Simmered until meat tender. Only gorgeous!

Well, this turned out brilliantly, but as more of an inspiration for a meal. Boyfriend doesn't like marmalade, so we replaced with apricot jam, and supplemented the garlic with onion, mushrooms and bacon. We added a cup of white wine, absolutely fantastic. But probably not marmalade pork anymore….

An amazingly quick and tasty meal. Once I had completed step one, after a minute or two I put my pork steaks back into the sauce to bubble away for a few minutes. I served with new potatoes, celery salt, thyme mixed with olive oil. Good for a quick mid week. Even my teenager who doesn't like pork enjoyed it!

We really enjoyed this, the sauce was delicious. Clear plates from kids aged 7, 5 and 2 (and youngest even ate her vegetables because they had some sauce on them). Lovely.

Wasn't that keen on this. Don't think the sauce really went with pork. Might be better with duck?
