Pork with Balsamic Figs


  • 4 Specially Selected Pork loin chops
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 4 fresh ripe figs, quartered
  • 3 tbsp Balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tbsp brown sugar
  • Creamy mashed potato for serving

Cooking Method

  1. Line a grill pan with foil and preheat the grill to medium.  Brush the pork with the oil and grill for 4-5 minutes on each side or until cooked to your liking.  Transfer to dish and keep warm.
  2. Carefully pour the grill pan juices into a medium frying pan, add the remaining olive oil then add the figs and cook for 1-2 minutes or until lightly coloured.  Keep the figs warm with the pork.
  3. Add the Balsamic vinegar and sugar to the pan with 5 tbsp water (or white wine).  Bring to the boil and simmer for 2-3 minutes or until reduced and syrupy.  Return figs to the pan to heat through.
  4. Pile some mashed tatties onto warmed plates, top with the pork, figs and a drizzle of balsamic syrup.

Butcher's Tips

Serving Suggestion
Specially Selected Pork tenderloin is a quicker cooking substitute. Simply pan fry tenderloin medallions for 2-3 minutes on each side until done to your liking.
