Method

  1. Cut the pork into 3cm thick slices. Heat the oil in a large, non-stick frying pan, add the pork, then fry on both sides until lightly browned, about 5 mins in total. Lift out of pan and set aside. Add apples to the pan, then cook for 3-4 mins until starting to soften.

  2. Stir in the garlic, maple syrup, vinegar and 3 tbsp water, bring to the boil, then return the meat to the pan along with any juices. Simmer for a few more mins, stirring until the pork is cooked through and the sauce is thick and sticky. Stir in the wholegrain mustard, then serve with plain or Crispy onion rice (recipe below).

Great - I made a few changes; First I sauted the garlic in the oil, then added the pieces of pork. and added one more apple and some honey( the maple syrup didn't give it that much bang).

Not used to sweet and savoury however it was quite nice. Not sure the rice is worth the effort though.
