Ingredients

  • For the marinated pork:

  • 4 pork loin medallions, fat removed, or 1 whole fillet, trimmed and cut into 8 medallion slices, or 6 fillet medallions
  • 2 tablespoons prepared jerk seasoning (or to taste)
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • For the salsa:

  • 120g pot/pouch fresh pineapple in natural juice, cut into 1cm cubes
  • 12 whole cherry tomatoes, quartered
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • 1 small bunch fresh coriander, chopped
  • 1 small red chilli, deseeded and chopped (optional)
  • 1 small red onion, peeled and finely chopped
  • To serve:

  • 200g sugar snap peas
  • 2 x 250g pouches of microwaveable rice
  • 1 x 400g can kidney beans, drained and rinsed

Method

1

In a shallow bowl, mix the jerk seasoning with the oil. Add the pork, spoon over the marinade and coat both sides. Cover and set aside for 5 minutes or longer for fuller flavour, if time allows.

2

To make the salsa, mix all the ingredients together in a medium bowl, and season to taste.

3

Heat a large non-stick frying or griddle pan for a couple of minutes until hot. Add the medallions to the pan and cook for 10 minutes, turning once or until the juices run clear.

4

Steam or boil the sugar snap peas in a pan of water on the hob for a few minutes. Microwave the rice pouches according to pack instructions and stir in the kidney beans.

5

Arrange the rice mix and sugar snap peas onto 4 serving plates. Once the medallions are cooked, cut into slices and arrange on top of the rice. Spoon some salsa over each medallion and serve.

Serving Suggestions


If preferred, use a flavoured rice pouch of your choice.
