Roast pork with warm apple & chestnut salad

Ingredients
    • Method
    1. Step 1

      Preheat oven to 220°C. Place pork in roasting pan and drizzle evenly with 1 tablespoon of oil. Season with salt and pepper. Roast in preheated oven for 30 minutes or until pork begins to change colour. Reduce oven temperature to 180°C and cook for 1 hour 20 mins or until golden brown.

    2. Step 2

      Meanwhile, cut a small cross in base of each chestnut. Place on a baking tray and roast, in preheated oven, for 20 minutes or until aromatic. Wrap in a clean tea towel, set aside for 5 minutes or until cool enough to handle. Peel away shells and light brown skin. Set aside.

    3. Step 3

      Heat remaining oil in a large frying pan over medium heat. Add the sage leaves and cook for 30 seconds or until crisp. Use a slotted spoon to transfer to a plate lined with paper towel.

    4. Step 4

      Heat butter in the same frying pan until foaming. Add the apple slices and cook, stirring occasionally, for 5 minutes or until apples are golden and tender. Use a slotted spoon to transfer the apple slices to a plate. Cover with foil and set aside.

    5. Step 5

      Add the onion to the frying pan and cook, stirring occasionally, for 5 minutes or until soft. Add apple slices, chestnuts and sage leaves, and gently toss until heated through. Taste and season with salt and pepper.

    6. Step 6

      Remove pork from roasting pan. Strain juices from pan into a heatproof jug and use a metal spoon to skim off any excess fat. Place pan over medium heat. Add port and pan juices and simmer, stirring with a flat-bottomed wooden spoon, for 5 minutes or until sauce thickens and reduces by half. Taste and season with salt and pepper.

    7. Step 7

      To serve, place pork on serving plate with apple and chestnut salad. Drizzle with port sauce and serve immediately.
