  • 500 g pork fillet, cut into 4 pieces
  • For the marinade, mix:
  • ½ cup sweet plum sauce
  • 3-4 T soy sauce
  • 1 T honey
  • a chunk of fresh ginger, peeled and grated
  • 1 star anise
  • For the salad:
  • 4 plums, sliced
  • 1 packet watercress
  • sesame oil for drizzling

Preheat the oven to 200°C.
Leave the pork in the marinade (soya, ginger, star anise, honey and plum sauce) for at least an hour, or overnight if more convenient.
Remove the pork from the marinade, reserving the latter.
Brown the pork all over in a nonstick pan, then place in a baking pan just large enough to take it and the reserved marinade, which should now be added.
Roast for 20 minutes, basting once or twice.
Once cooked, allow to cool, then slice. Mix the sliced pork with the cooking juices and spoon onto a platter or individual plates.
Add the plums and the watercress and drizzle with sesame oil.
