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.
