Serves 3
Ingredients
  • For the mash
  • 500g of white potato, peeled and cubed
  • ½ a small savoy cabbage, shredded
  • chicken stock
  • For the Pork and Sauce
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves crushed
  • 1 crisp apple (I used a pink lady), cut into wedges (3.5 syns)
  • 3 pork loins
  • 1 tablespoon of wholegrain mustard (1.5 syns)
  • 1 tablespoon of maple syrup, or 2 tsp of brown sugar (2 syns)
  • 1 cup/240ml of chicken stock (warm)
  • 3 tablespoons of quark or fat free fromage frais (take out from fridge well in advance)
  • spray oil
  • Black Pepper
  • fresh chopped Italian parsley
Method
  1. For the mash
  2. Add the potato and cabbage to a large saucepan, cover with chicken stock. Bring to the boil and reduce heat and leave to simmer while you cook the pork and sauce.
  3. Drain the water from the potato and cabbage and mash with a sprinkling of black pepper.
  4. Divide equally among 3 plates.
  5. For the Pork and Sauce
  6. Spray a large frying pan over a medium high heat with spray oil. Fry the onion and garlic on a low heat for about 8 mins until softened and golden brown.
  7. Add the apple and brown sugar and stir continuously until the apple starts to go golden. Then remove the apple and onion mixture from the pan and set aside.
  8. Spray the pan with some more spray oil and add the pork loins and cook until they start to go golden (repeating on both sides).
  9. Add the about 200ml of the warm chicken stock and the mustard to the frying pan with the pork loins, leaving approx 40ml of the stock still in the jug and bring to the boil. Reduce the heat and return the apple and onion mixture to the frying pan and then simmer for approx 8 mins.
  10. Remove the pork, apple and onion.
  11. Reduce the heat on pan.
  12. To the 40ml of reserved stock, stir in the quark or fromage frais. This will help to prevent it from splitting in the pan.
  13. Mix this to the sauce in the pan and whisk until you have a smooth sauce.
  14. Serve the sauce drizzled over the pork and mash.
  15. Enjoy!!
