  • 500 g smoked or fresh pork fillet
  • 1 onion, thinly sliced
  • 2 T olive oil
  • 1 t paprika, if required
  • 2 oranges, juiced
  • 1 lemon, juiced
  • 1/2 cup chicken stock
  • 1/4 cup fresh coriander, chopped
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • Sea salt, if required
  • 1 T ponzu sauce, if required
  • Sweet potatoes baked, for serving
  • Asian salad greens, moistened with ponzu sauce, for serving

Cooking Instructions

Thinly slice the pork into medallions. Gently soften the onion in 2 T olive oil until very tender but still pale. Stir in the pork and, increasing the heat, sauté for a few minutes, adding a little more oil if necessary.

If you’re using fresh pork, stir in the paprika. Add the fruit juice and stock. Simmer for a few minutes. Add the chopped coriander, a twist or two of black pepper, salt and the ponzu sauce if you’re using fresh pork.

If needed, add more ponzu sauce or a little salt. Serve with the sweet potatoes and salad greens.

Cook’s note: Serve with rice noodles and wilt some greens in the hot citrus sauce.
