Cajun roasted pork

cajun roasted pork

cajun roasted porkPork tender loin is the leanest pork available, and is nearly as low in saturated fat as chicken breasts.

A small amount can go a long way in stir-fry dishes, or cut can be cut into 2.5 cm pieces and flattened as medallions. In this dish I have kept the piece whole and roasted it with a delicious combination of flavours.

Traditionally pork is served with apple sauce,  but for this week’s special meal I have used the apples to make a crumble as the pork is already flavoured with a delicious cajun mix.
