Method

  • Whisk together the marinade ingredients in a bowl. Add any salt and pepper to taste
  • Place the pork in a large resealable plastic bag and pour in the marinade. Make sure the mixture coats the pork on both sides. Marinate in the refrigerator at least 1 hour before cooking (if you can leave overnight as this intensifies the flavour)
  • Take the pork from the fridge 10 minutes before you plan to cook it to bring it back to room temperature
  • Meanwhile cook the quinoa as per the packet instructions
  • Whilst the quinoa is cooking heat the remaining oil in a frying pan over a low to medium heat. Add the pork and marinade juice. Cook gently for 6 minutes each side. Add the finely chopped onion to the pan for the last 3 minutes
  • Add the tomatoes, celery, cucumber and pepper to a plate, add the quinoa and mix well
  • Place the pork and any remaining marinade on top and serve
