Balsamic pork with apples

Balsamic Pork with Apples_69702

Pork and apple is a well-known and traditional flavour pairing. We love pork and apple recipes and we reckon this balsamic pork with apples recipe will soon become a well-known classic in your house too.

Cooking time: 15 minutes
Serves: 4 people

Ingredients

  •  4 pork loin steaks, fat removed, or 4 pork medallions
  •  15g unsalted butter
  •  1 teaspoon vegetable oil
  •  2 small red onions, peeled and cut into 8 wedges
  •  2 red eating apples, cored and each cut into thin wedges

For the marinade

  •  100ml balsamic vinegar
  •  2 teaspoons runny honey
  •  2 teaspoons freshly chopped thyme leaves or dried thyme

Method

  1. In a shallow dish, mix together the vinegar, honey and herbs, and season to taste. Add the pork and turn to coat. Cover and set aside.
  2. Meanwhile, heat the butter and oil in a large non-stick ovenproof frying pan. Add the onions and cook for 2–3 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add the apples and cook for 2 minutes until the onions and apples are starting to caramelise. Remove from the pan.
  3. Drain the pork from the marinade and reserve the marinade. Cook the pork for 4–5 minutes over a medium heat, turn the steaks, add the onions, apples and reserved marinade. Continue to cook for a further 4–5 minutes or until the juices run clear.
  4. Divide the pork between four serving plates, and serve with the sauce, onions, apples and seasonal vegetables.
