    500 g pork fillet

    4 tbsp cashew butter

    2 tsp Chinese 5 spice

    1 chilli, deseeded and finely chopped

    1 tbsp honey

    1 tbsp soy sauce

    1 clove garlic, crushed


    Heat the oven to 200C/ fan 180C/ Gas 6.

    Season the pork with salt and pepper all over and rub in a tsp of oil.

    Combine all the remaining ingredients into a smooth paste.

    In a hot frying pan, sear the pork on each side then transfer to a roasting dish.

    Spread the cashew butter over the top and down the sides of the fillet and cook in the oven for 25-30mins. Check halfway through and if its browning too quickly turn the oven down 20C.

    Check the meat is cooked through then set aside to rest for 5mins. Once ready to eat, slice the pork into medallions approximately 1cm thick.

    Serve with a salad of crunchy Chinese leaf and grated carrot dressed with sesame oil.
