Carolina pork fillet with peach bbq sauce and sweet potato hash browns

  • For the pork fillet
  • 1 tbsp hickory barbecue seasoning blend
  • 900g pork fillet, cleaned
  • 480ml prepared virgin Bloody Mary mix
  • 360ml peach nectar
  • 1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 60ml apple cider vinegar
  • 3 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1 tsp granulated garlic
  • 2 tsp hot sauce
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 450g chopped frozen peaches
  • For the hash browns
  • 3 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 30g butter
  • 700g sweet potatoes, peeled and shredded
  • 150g to 300g bag frozen onions and red pepper mixture, chopped
  • 10g chopped fresh celery leaves
  • 2 tsp salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 fresh peaches, sliced
  • 2 tbsp chopped parsley leaves, to garnish
1) Preheat the oven to 190C/Gas 5. Spray a large ovenproof skillet with nonstick cooking spray. Sprinkle the barbecue seasoning blend over the pork fillet. Quickly sear the meat on all sides over medium heat.

2) Meanwhile, while meat is searing, start the hash browns by adding the vegetable oil and butter to another large pan. Add the shredded sweet potatoes, onion and bell pepper blend, and celery leaves in a single layer. Cook over medium heat for 3 to 4 minutes without stirring. Stir in the salt and pepper, to taste, and continue to cook until potatoes are tender, about 10 to 12 minutes.

3) Once the fillet has been seared, remove to a platter and to the same skillet whisk in the Bloody Mary mix, peach nectar, Worcestershire sauce, apple cider vinegar, brown sugar, garlic, hot sauce, black pepper and chopped peaches; simmer over medium heat for 8 to 10 minutes. Remove the sauce from the heat, place the seared pork in the pan and spoon the sauce over the top.

4) Place the pan in the oven and cook until the pork reaches an internal temperature of 64C on an instant-read thermometer. Remove the meat from the oven and allow to sit for a few minutes before slicing.

5) To plate, arrange the sweet potato hash browns and the sliced pork on individual dishes and top with some of the sauce. Garnish with fresh peach slices and a sprinkling of parsley.
