  • Peel the garlic cloves. Pop half into a small piece of foil with a drizzle of oil and scrunch to enclose.

  • Season the pork with salt and pepper. IMPORTANT: Wash hands and equipment after handling raw meat.
Fry the Veg

  • Trim the green beans.

  • Cook until tender, 4-6 mins. Remove from the pan and cover to keep warm.
Make the Garlic Butter

  • Pop into a bowl and mash with 1 tbsp butter (double for 4p).
  • Season with salt and pepper then mix to combine and set aside.
Cook the Pork
5
  • Return the pan to high heat with a drizzle of oil.
  • Once hot, sear the pork loin, fat-side down, until crispy, 2-3 mins.
  • Reduce the heat to medium and once seared, fry until cooked, 4-5 mins on each side.
  • When 1 min of cooking time remains, add the garlic butter, allow to melt and use a spoon to baste the pork in it.
  • Once cooked, transfer from the pan, cover and allow to rest, 1-2 mins. IMPORTANT: Pork is cooked when no longer pink in the middle.
