  2. Heat the griddle pan until hot, remove the pork from the dish and sit it in the pan, brushing with a little of the marinade, leave it to sit until the meat comes away from the bottom of the pan with ease, then turn and brush again, keep turning and brushing with marinade until pork is sticky, lightly charred and cooked through.
  3. Remove from griddle pan and leave to rest for 10 mins then slice and serve with tortillas breads salad, spring onions and cucumber if using.

Cook’s tip… Using tenderloin instead of ribs really cuts down on the cals without compromising on taste – cooking it on the griddle with the sweet bbq sauce makes this such a tasty dish 

Cook’s tip: if you prefer you can cook this in the oven – sit pork and sauce in a roasting tin and cook at gas 6/200C (180C in a fan oven) for about 30-40 mins until golden brown and cooked through
