Step 1

In an oven proof dish scatter 2/3 of the onion & sage over the base and a few apple rings. Lay the pork on top and scatter with the remaining onion & sage. Place the rest of the apple rings on top and pour over enough cider to come about half way up the pork. Season if desired.

Step 2

Cover and place in the oven at 200c. After 20 mins remove the cover and cook for a further 20 mins.

Step 3

When the pork is cooked, carefully drain off the liquid and spoon at least half of the onion & sage into a pan. Leave the pork to rest.

Step 4

Meanwhile, heat the pan of sauce & stir in gravy granules to the desired thickness. Pour the thickened sauce back over the resting pork & apples and serve.


Trim any fat or rind off the pork for a lower fat option.
Dont peel the apples for more fibre & so they stay in rings better.
Dried apple slices can be used instead.
Apple juice can replace the cider but use unsweetened.
