Spiced Pork Parcels

  • Spiced Pork Parcels

Preparation Time: Approximately 5 minutes
Time to cook: Approx 30 minutes

An infusion of unusual spices makes this simple dish mysteriously good!

Pre-heat oven: 200'C / 180'C Fan / Gas Mark 6 and cut 4 large pieces of silver foil or greaseproof paper to roughly 30cm's square.

Place a steak in the centre of each sheet; mix together the soy sauce and honey and pour evenly over each steak.  Top each steak with one of each whole spice.  Crumple and twist the foil to form into a parcel - sealing well.

Place in a large shallow roasting tin and cook for 15 minutes.  Smear a little butter over each pear half and arrange alongside the parcels.  Continue to cook for 15 minutes or until the pork and pears are tender and cooked through.

Tasty Tip: Replace the pear with apple - or add extra fruit!
