Ingredients

  • 4 boneless pork loin steaks, trimmed of any fat
  • 2 tsp Chinese five-spice powder
  • 1 tbsp sunflower oil
    Sunflower oil

    Sunflower oil

    A variety of oils can be used for baking. Sunflower is the one we use most often at Good Food as…

  • 1 large red onion, cut into thin wedges through the root
  • 4 red apples, cored and cut into eighths
    Apples

    Apple

    ap-pel

    Grown in temperate regions, apples are one of the most widely cultivated tree fruits. There are…

  • 2 tbsp redcurrant jelly
  • 1 tbsp red wine vinegar or cider vinegar
  • 200ml chicken stock

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.

I always find pork chops boring. This has transformed them. Delicious. Loved by all the family. Even my 7 month baby led weaning baby enjoyed. Especially the apples!

Always easy and always delicious. It really is fast food but tastes as though you've spent ages over it.

SO yummy! I followed the recipe except I didn't have chinese 5 spice so I just used a bit of cinnamon instead. I also used a wok to make the sauce and probably boiled it a bit too vigorously but it was amazing and made a super yummy sauce with disintegrating apples in, mmmmm. Served with mini roast potatoes (both sweet potatoes and normal)

SO delicious, my family loved it too! I used shallots instead of red onion, as that was all I had. I also finished off cooking the pork loin steaks in the oven whilst I cooked everything else in the pan. It was a lovely meal.

SO delicious & easy to do. My family loved it! I did use shallots instead of the red onion as that was all I had. I also cooked the pork loin steaks in the oven after initially frying them in the pan whilst I was cooking all the other ingredients in the pan.

Very simple and quick to cook. I used 2 onions and 2 apples, cut thinly and given time to reduce. Served with mash and kale. Wonderful stuff.

So delicious! what a great recipe, so tasty and quick. Highly recommend. I have cooked for 2 so only used one large apple, also didn't have any red wine vinegar so used big splash of red wine :) and little bit of white wine vinegar. also I have added red pepper a little bit of garlic and i didnt have any redcurrant jelly so used damson jelly. it was fantastic! only downside was that there wasn't more :D. I have served it with mash and chilli & garlic spring greens, that I have also found on this website. Yum

AMAZING! This is one of the best dishes I've ever cooked from the website. The pork with the 5 spice is gorgeous alongside the syrupy sauce and tender apples. The red onion goes so well with it too. I served this with mashed potato and it was thoroughly enjoyed by all!
