How to make it

  • Butter a baking tray.
  • Using a sharp knife, make little slits all over the meat.
  • Push a sliver of garlic into each slit. Turn the fillet over so that the garlic is on both sides.
  • Bruise the rosemary leaves in a mortar to release the fragrant oil. Chop them up finely.
  • In a saucepan, melt the butter.
  • Combine the melted butter with the vinegar.
  • Brush the meat with some of this mixture.
  • Sprinkle with half the rosemary, and season.
  • On the baking tray, scatter the onion.
  • Place the pork fillets on top.
  • **NB: All this can be prepared in advance and covered with clingfilm.
  • When you want to cook the roast:
  • Preheat the oven to Gas 8.
  • Core and slice the apples into 6.
  • Toss the apples in the remaining butter/vinegar mixture, then arrange them all around the baking tray.
  • Sprinkle them with the sugar and the rest of the rosemary.
  • Place the tray on the top shelf in the oven and roast for 25-30 minutes until the pork is cooked, and there are no pink juices. Transfer the pork and apples to a serving dish and keep warm. Let them rest for 10 minutes.
  • Add a little cider to the baking tray. Loosen the onions and the juices and then pour into a saucepan over medium heat.
  • Add the rest of the cider. Allow to reduce by about a third.
  • Add the creme fraiche and taste for seasoning.
  • Carve the pork and serve with the sauce.
