Maple-Baked Pork

Midweek meals have never been simpler than with this easy marinate-and-bake roast pork. The maple syrup glaze caramelises the carrots to perfection and works beautifully with the pork cutlets.

Maple-Baked Pork

Serves  4

Ingredients

¼ cup olive oil, plus 2 tbsp

½ cup maple syrup

8 carrots, peeled and chopped into batons

20 sage leaves

4 garlic cloves, crushed, skin on

4 pork-loin cutlets

 

Method

1 Preheat oven to 200°C. Place 1/4 cup olive oil and maple syrup in a bowl, season with salt and pepper, and whisk to combine.

2 Put carrots, sage, and garlic in a large baking dish and spoon over half the maple-syrup mixture.

3 Cook in oven for 15-20 minutes or until carrots start to caramelise. Heat oil in a nonstick frying pan and cook pork for 1-2 minutes on each side. Set pork on top of carrots in baking dish and pour over remaining maple-syrup mixture.

4 Return to the oven and cook for another 8-10 minutes or until pork is cooked through. Season with black pepper. Serve with salad.
