Pork and apple slaw recipe

This pork and apple slaw recipe is incredibly simple and guaranteed to turn heads at dinner. Very healthy, but delicious still! It tastes even better the next day…

I’m going to come clean, this post is an entry to a competition! When this email arrived in my inbox I knew i’d have to enter, since two of the ingredients ticked the boxes on my dope coleslaw (I say my recipe, it’s technically my friend Sophie’s – but this is the internet and you can pretend on here)

Back to the competition, it’s a campaign run by simplyhealth and it’s something I can relate to. As a student… lets just say my diet at times has left a lot to be desired. If it wasn’t for a rigorous oral hygiene regime I’d of probably lost a few teeth by now. I dread to think what could be going on in some of my friends mouths.

But yeah, their site has a really cool infographic to tell you what foods to embrace and which ones to avoid for a healthy smile

Pork and apple  slaw recipe


1)Dice your onion, shred your red cabbage and grate your carrot.  SAM_0622 2) Throw all of your ingredients into a mixing bowl. At this point add the mayo, yoghurt, pepper, mustard and lemon juice. Adjust to taste.
SAM_0624 3) Mix it all up, real good – don’t worry if it’s not saucy enough – throw it in the fridge for twenty minutes and the flavours will combine further. If you’re a slaw purist like me, leave it over night.

SAM_0630 4) This step required some help from my old friend George Foreman. I threw a couple of loin steaks on alongside a whole apple. If you do not have one of these you could use the grill of your oven or fry the loin steak and then the apple.  It doesn’t take very long for them to cook through (5 minutes)

5) Remove your slaw from the fridge and plate up! Ensure your pork steaks are cooked through and slice before throwing on top of your apples / slaw.  That was my pork and apple slaw recipe – I hope you enjoyed it folks!
