Pork Loin Steaks with Sage Apple Sauce and Onion

dsc_0836

This was a quick midweek meal that turned out even more delicious than expected. Although the sauce is sweet, it is healthy with no added sugar. Also, with no carbs it is suitable for those on Banting diets.

Serves 2.

ingredients 1 small red onion, thinly sliced
1/4 cup white wine vinegar
2 apples, peeled, cored and diced
5 sage leaves, chopped
1 tbsp butter
1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
4 pork loin steaks
2 tbsp butter
2 garlic cloves, peeled and halved
a few sprigs of thyme

Place the sliced red onion in a small bowl with the white wine vinegar and leave to stand for at least half an hour.

Place the diced apples in a small pot and just cover with water. Bring to the boil and then simmer until soft. Drain most of the water, leaving just a little to make blending the apple easier. Add the sage and puree with a hand blender or liquidiser. Add the butter and cider vinegar and mix well. Season to taste.

Add the remaining butter, garlic and thyme to a hot frying pan. Season the steaks on both sides with salt and pepper. Fry the steaks, turning occasionally, until browned and cooked through.

Spread a thin layer of the apple sauce on each plate, then top with the steaks and the onion.
