We love a bit of fruit on meat action! Everyone loves a bit of apple sauce on their pork, but if you’ve never had orange glazed pork, now’s your chance. We adore the way it works with fluffy couscous and Mediterranean veggies.
Boxes and ingredients are packed in facilities that handles Peanut, Nuts, Sesame, Fish, Crustaceans, Milk, Egg, Mustard, Celery, Soya, Gluten and Sulphites. Due to the conflict in Ukraine, it has been necessary to substitute sunflower oil with rapeseed oil in some products without a label change. The FSA have advised that allergic reactions to rapeseed oil are rare.

Preheat your oven to 200 degrees. Zest the orange and squeeze the juice into a large bowl (put the zest in the bowl too), add the soy sauce and the sugar (amount specified in the ingredient list, if you have some) and mix together, this is your soy and orange sauce! Put the pork in the bowl, give everything a stir until your pork is well coated in your sauce. Leave to the side to marinate while you prepare everything else.
Cut the red onion in half through the root, peel and slice thinly into half moon shapes. Remove the core from the peppers and chop into roughly 2cm pieces. Chop the courgette into 2cm pieces. Roughly chop the parsley.
Put your pepper and courgette on a baking tray with a glug of oil, sprinkle over a good pinch of salt and a good grind of black pepper. Give the tray a shake and pop on the top shelf of your oven for 20-25 mins, until cooked and slightly crispy.
Meanwhile, put your onion in a saucepan on low heat with a drizzle of oil and cook for 10 mins until soft. Add the balsamic vinegar and cook for another 10 mins on low heat. When your onion is soft and caramelised, put a lid on the pan, take it off the heat and leave to the side.
Put a pot of water on to boil (amount specified in the ingredient list) with the chicken stock pot. Stir to dissolve your stock pot and once boiling add the couscous and a drizzle of olive oil. Take the pot off the heat, put a lid on and leave to the side for your couscous to absorb the stock.
While everything else is cooking, put a frying pan on medium heat with a drizzle of oil and lay in your pork. Leave your sauce in the bowl. Fry for 7-8 mins on each side. Tip: The pork should caramelise slightly but if it starts burning, turn the heat right down. Once your pork is cooked, pop it on a chopping board and cover with foil to rest for a few mins. Tip: The pork is cooked when it is no longer pink in the middle. Add your sauce to the pan and simmer for 2 mins, then remove from the heat.
Fluff up your couscous with a fork, add your veggies, caramelised onion and half your parsley to the pot. Stir everything together. Slice your pork into roughly 1cm thick slices.
Serve your couscous in bowls with your pork on top and a good spoonful of your soy and orange sauce. Sprinkle your remaining parsley over the top. Enjoy!
