GETTING READY

2. In a shallow dish, mix together the rosemary, mustard, sugar, honey and lemon juice.
3. Cut the pork in half and add to the dish, turning to coat. Shake off any excess marinade.
4. In a frying pan, heat 1 tablespoon of the oil ½ ounce of butter, add pork and cook over a high heat for 2-3 minutes on each side to seal.
5. Transfer the pork to the roasting tin and bake in the preheated oven for 10-12 minutes or until tender.
6. Cut a slice off the top and bottom of each potato, then put the potatoes in a saucepan of cold salted water. Bring to the boil then cook for 5 minutes.

MAKING
7. To the frying pan, add the cider with any remaining marinade, then add the stock and boil until reduced by half.
8. In another frying pan, heat the remaining butter in a small frying pan. Drain the potatoes and add to the pan. Cover with a round of greaseproof paper and then a lid and cook for 5 minutes on each side until golden.
9. In a wok, heat the remaining oil, add the apple, vegetables, salt and pepper. Stir-fry over a high heat until lightly golden.
