a new take on pork and apples

Everything in the one pan, can it get any easier! 

Everyone loves pork and apple together. This is no different with added flavour and more juice!












 Slice in pan and serve


Rub tenderloin with a little olive oil. Place the salt, coriander seeds, star anise and pepper into a mortar and pestle and grind to make a rub.
Rub the spice mix onto the tenderloin.

Heat a pan with the olive oil and gently sauce the garlic. Then add the tender loin, seal on all sides and continue to gently cook for a further 6 minutes.

Whilst the pork is cooking add the apple wedges around the pan and allow to become a light golden colour, turn and cook the other side.

Degrease the pan with the apple cider and sprinkle the brown sugar around the pan and allow to reduce and caramelise. Add the fresh thyme and slice tenderloin in the pan and serve.
