3 tablespoons tomato sauce

2 tablespoons soy sauce 

2 bay leaves 

1 tablespoon chopped fresh sage 

1 tablespoon whole black peppercorns 

Splash of white wine

Two 8-ounce warthog or pork fillets

Kosher salt

Butter, for frying 

1/4 cup barbecue sauce, for serving

Caramelized Apples:

2 tablespoons golden syrup

1 tablespoon butter

1 tablespoon brown sugar 

2 medium apples, unpeeled, cored and roughly chopped


  1. For the warthog: Put the tomato sauce, soy sauce, bay leaves, sage, black peppercorns and white wine in a bowl, add the warthog or pork fillets and marinate at room temperature for 30 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, make the apples: Heat the golden syrup, butter and sugar together in a small frying pan until melted and starting to caramelize. Add the apples and toss to coat and soften a bit, about 3 m inutes. Set aside.
  3. To finish the warthog: Season the warthog fillets with salt. Heat a little butter in a frying pan and fry the warthog or pork fillets until just cooked through, 4 to 5 minutes on each side. Serve immediately with the caramelized apples and some barbecue sauce.
