Add pork (reserve the marinade) and cook, turning, until outside is browned. Remove from heat and place pork in oven (use dish used to roast pumpkin) for about 15 minutes until just cooked through but still slightly pink. Remove from oven and set aside to rest.

4 Combine cider vinegar and honey in a bowl. Add grated apple and ginger and mix to combine. Steam greens in microwave or steamer and drizzle with sesame oil.
5 Slice pork and add any juices to reserved marinade. Pour this mixture into pan with a little water and bring to the boil. Simmer for 5-8 minutes until sauce thickens and becomes glossy. Remove from heat.
