1.Preheat oven to 200°C (180°C fan-forced).
2.Heat half the oil in a medium flameproof baking dish on the stove top over high heat; cook pork until browned all over. Remove from heat. Combine mustard, parsley and honey in a small bowl; brush mustard mixture all over pork, season.
3.Place apple, onion and sage around pork in dish; drizzle with remaining oil. Transfer to oven; roast, uncovered, for 20 minutes or until pork is cooked through. Remove pork, apples, onion and sage from dish, cover with foil; stand 10 minutes.
4.Place dish over medium heat on stove top. Add flour; cook, stirring, until mixture thickens and bubbles. Gradually add stock; cook, stirring, until gravy boils and thickens slightly, season.
5.Meanwhile, boil, steam or microwave beans until tender; drain. Serve sliced pork with baked apples, onions and sage, gravy and beans.

A flameproof baking dish can be cast iron, a heavy-based roasting pan or a heatproof crockery dish. Use Golden Delicious apples – a crisp almost citrus-coloured apple – if you prefer. They have an excellent flavour and hold their shape during cooking.
