Thanks to the The Fuss Free Foodie for this delicious recipe that includes Cornish Orchard’s Heritage Cider!

  • Pork tenderloin (approx. 440-500g), excess fat and sinews removed
  • 250ml Cornish Orchards Heritage cider
  • 1 medium onion, diced
  • 1 can butterbeans, drained and rinsed
  • 2 tbsp plain flour
  • 1 heaped tsp hot or sweet smoked paprika
  • 6-10 sage leaves
  • 150ml veg stock
  • 2 tbsp thick cream
  • 2 tbsp olive or vegetable oil
  • Salt and pepper
  1. Cut the pork into 1cm medallions.
  2. In a bag, put the flour and paprika. Add the medallions to the bag, hold tightly around the top and shake the bag to coat the pork all over. Place the medallions on a plate.
  3. Add 1 tbsp of the oil into a large saucepan and place on a medium-high heat.
  4. Add the medallions to the pan but do not overfill. Best to do 2 separate batches.
  5. Fry on each side for 2 minutes to add a little colour, then remove to a clean plate.
  6. Add 1 tbsp of oil to the pan and then add the chopped onion. Reduce the heat to low-medium and gently fry the onions for 5-8 minutes until they are translucent.
  7. Add the Cornish Orchards Heritage cider to the pan and increase the heat so it bubbles for 3 minutes and reduces.
  8. Add the sage, butterbeans and the pork (and any resting juices) to the pan. Add the stock and season with salt and pepper. Simmer for 8 minutes.
  9. Remove the pork and butterbeans to a serving dish, leaving the sauce in the pan. Add the cream, stir and bubble on a medium – high heat for 2-3 minutes to thicken.
  10. Pour the thickened sauce into the serving dish over the pork and butterbeans. Serve with seasonal vegetables and bread or new potatoes.
