Ingredients

  • 3 medium or 2 large Red Onions
  • 1 large Green Bell Pepper
  • 1 large Red Bell Pepper
  • Handful of Sultanas (approx 25)
  • Piece of Root Ginger
  • 2 small or 1 large Cooking Apple – sliced (add some lemon juice when cut to stop it going brown)
  • 6 medium to large Vine Tomatoes
  • 1 Courgette (optional)
  • 4 tbsp Lemon Juice
  • 2 sprigs Parsley
  • 2 tsp dried Oregano
  • 2 tsp Muscovado sugar
  • 1 tbsp Rapeseed or Olive Oil

Method

Step 1

30 minutes before the pork serving time, use the frying pan that the pork was cooked in and add another 2 tablespoons of olive oil.

Step 2

Add the chopped onions and peppers and fry on a high heat for approx 5 minutes.

Step 3

Add the sliced, cored, skinned apple and fry for 2 minutes. Before it goes brown, add the lemon juice and stir thoroughly.

Step 4

Add the sliced tomatoes and grated ginger.

Step 5

Cook for a further 5 minutes and the mixture will become juicier. Add a little passata or tomato juice if a slightly richer tomato flavour is required. Add 2 pinches of Low Salt (low sodium) and the fresh oregano, chopped and removed from the stem.

Step 6

Add the sultanas, cooking the mixture until the mixture is thoroughly cooked and the sultanas have increased in size. Add the sugar near the end of the cooking.

Step 7

Pour the mixture over the Pork Tenderloin and serve in a pre-heated dish.
