Ingredients

Method

  • STEP 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.

  • STEP 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).

RECIPE TIPS
CRISPY ONION RICE

Put 200g basmati rice in a pan and cover with cold water. Stir in 2 tsp stock powder or 1 crumbled stock cube. Bring to the boil, stir, then simmer for 10 mins until the water has almost evaporated. Put a lid on, leave for 5 mins, then fluff up with a fork. Meanwhile, heat 2 tbsp sunflower oil in a frying pan, add 1 thinly sliced onion, then fry until browned and crisp. Fold into the rice and serve.

SAVE SOME MONEY

For a great-value meal, replace the pork with a 400g pack pork sausages, sliced into chunks. Cook for 10-12 mins before adding the apple slices.
