Pork with Apples

Pork with Apples
Serves 4

500g/1lb 2oz lean pork fillet
2 teaspoons sunflower oil
150ml/5fl oz vegetable stock
150ml/5fl oz dry rosé wine

• Trim away any fat and silvery skin from the pork fillet, and cut into 1cm/1/2in thick slices.
• Heat the oil in a non-stick frying pan, add the pork slices and sauté for 4–5 minutes until browned all over. Using a slotted spoon, remove the pork and drain on kitchen paper. Reserve the pan juices.
• Pour the stock and wine into the pan with the juices, and add the thyme and honey. Mix well, bring to a simmer and add the pork and apples. Continue to simmer, uncovered, for 5 minutes.
