1 Preheat oven to 180°C. Spray a frying pan with oil and place over a medium-high heat. Cook pork for 2 minutes each side or until browned. Transfer to a baking tray and roast for 8-10 minutes or until just cooked through. Transfer pork to a plate, cover and rest for 5 minutes.
2 Meanwhile, return pan to medium-high heat. Add pears and cook, stirring occasionally, for 3-4 minutes or until golden. Add stock, wine, lemon zest and currants. Simmer for 2-3 minutes until pears are tender and liquid has reduced by half. Remove from heat and keep warm.
3 Slice pork into 1cm-thick slices. Serve with kumara mash, broccoli and courgettes. Spoon pears, currants and pan juices over pork before serving.
