3 tablespoons olive oil for frying
blanched green beans to serve (optional)

For the mustard glaze

1/3 cup brown sugar
3 tablespoons rum or brandy (optional)
1 tablespoon lemon juice
3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon


Season both sides of pork pieces with salt, pepper, and liquid seasoning.

In a small bowl, mix together all the ingredients for mustard glaze. Brush both sides of each pork loin with the glaze.

3  Heat oil in a frying pan. Sear both sides of the pork loin. Transfer to a roasting pan or baking dish. Continue cooking in the oven (preheated at 350ºF) or in the turbo broiler at 160ºC. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes or until juices run clear when pierced.

Make the apple compote: In a saucepan, melt butter. Add apples and sauté for 30 seconds. Add the rest of the ingredients and continue cooking over low heat until apples are tender.

To serve, place pork loin in individual dishes. Top with apple compote. Serve with green beans, if desired.
