Braised pork fillets with apples

Method

  • Heat a thin layer of oil in a heavy-bottomed pan and brown the pork all over. Remove and set aside. 
  • Add a little more oil to the pan, if needed, and toss the onion, celery, garlic and apples for a minute or two.
  • Then add about 1½ cups stock with seasonings and the thyme. Mix well and gently cook for about 15-20 mins until the apples have collapsed a bit, adding more stock if needed. 
  • Turn the heat down, return the pork with 1 tbsp chopped parsley and briefly cook. Then remove the pork and thyme sprigs. Taste the sauce for seasoning and stir in 2 tbsp parsley. Briefly cook. 
  • Turn the heat off and stir in the yoghurt, being careful not to curdle. 
  • Mound the pork on individual plates and spoon plenty of the sauce over the top. Serve with steamed green vegies on the side.
