  1. Mix the sage, fennel seeds and breadcrumbs on a plate. Brush the pork with the mustard, then dip in the mixture to evenly coat.
  2. Heat the oil in a large frying pan and fry the pork over a medium- low heat for 5-6 mins each side until golden, crisp and cooked through. Set aside, covered, to rest for 10 mins.
  3. Meanwhile, put the potatoes and apple in a large pan of cold water. Bring to the boil, then reduce the heat and simmer for 12 mins or until tender. Drain, then mash with the butter and milk and season to taste. Serve the pork with the apple mash and some steamed greens, if you like.
