Cider Roast Pork Cutlets with Apple and Fennel

Remember when I got the meat package from Meat Porter, I wanted to keep the cooking minimal to let the taste of the meat stand out? I did this together with all the other vegetables and flavours known to pair well with the pork. I was a little unsure...
