ROAST PORK LEG, CIDER BRAISED CABBAGE AND APPLES & WHITE BEAN AND KALE

ROAST PORK TENDERLOIN, CIDER BRAISED CABBAGE AND APPLES & WHITE BEAN AND KALE

When winter is upon us, this is the perfect warmer...nice contrast between rich and hearty with tangy and light.

While this may seem complicated, it really isn't. You'll need two pans on the stove while the pork is roasting in the oven. I use canned beans so it makes it just as easy as any Sunday roast.

Here's what you'll need

ROAST PORK LEG, CIDER BRAISED CABBAGE AND APPLES & WHITE BEAN AND KALE

  • 4 slices bacon (lardons)

  • 2 tbsp mustard
  • 1 tbsp dried or fresh thyme
  • 2 cups chicken stock
  • 3 tbsp vegetable oil
