  • 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



    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


  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.

A lovely dish although the apple took quite a long time to cook. Would definitely recommend though :)

Very lovely! Added some peppers and less apples and used more stock to make more of a sauce. Also used Balsamic vinegar. Kids were not too keen on the flavour of the chinese five spice but ate some of it. Served it with beans and mash.

Yummy! Loved this! Was cooking for 2, but used the full amount of sauce ingredients as wanted lots of sauce/gravy -was perfect, only used 1 apple for 2 people though! Did this with mash - will cook this again!

Altered this somewhat as didn't have any apples. Substituted red peppers for the apples and used honey, soy sauce and white wine vinegar in place of the redcurrant jelly and the red wine vinegar. Delicious, although next time will reduce the amount of five spice a little. Served with creamy mashed potatoes.

Surprisingly good. My apples cooked at different speeds but it was really delicious.

Had this for tea this evening. We used 3 apples instead of 4 and cut them into small chunks which was better for us. Also had no redcurrant so substituted mango chutney which worked a treat. Definitely would make again.
