• 113g pork tenderloin
  • 1/4 cup olive oil or melted butter
  • 1 granny smith (or similar sour green) apple, peeled and very finely chopped
  • 2 tsps (or about 5 leaves) fresh thyme, finely chopped
  • 1 tsp lemon zest
  • 2 tbsps water


  1. Put pork in a baking dish then pour the butter or olive oil (making sure both sides are coated) and generously season.
  2. Bake at 450 for 30 minutes, depending on the thickness of your tenderloin.
  3. To make the sauce, heat the apple, thyme, lemon zest and water over a low heat for 15 minutes, cover and stir occasionally. The apples should break down to form a paste. Keep it warm and serve over pork.
