For the fillet

Nonstick cooking spray
1 tbsp hickory barbecue seasoning blend
1kg pork fillet, cleaned
480ml prepared virgin Bloody Mary mix
630ml peach nectar
1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
60ml apple cider vinegar
3 tbsp brown sugar
1 tsp minced garlic
2 tsp hot sauce
Freshly cracked black pepper
500g chopped frozen peaches

For the hash browns

3 tbsp vegetable oil
25g butter
700g sweet potatoes, peeled, grated
150g to 300g bag frozen onions and red pepper mixture, chopped
4 tbsp chopped fresh celery leaves
2 tsp salt
Freshly ground black pepper
2 fresh peaches, sliced
2 tbsp chopped parsley leaves
1) Preheat the oven to 190C/Gas 5. Spray a large ovenproof pan with nonstick cooking spray. Sprinkle the barbecue seasoning blend over the pork fillet. Quickly sear the meat on all sides over a medium heat.

2) Meanwhile, while the meat is searing, start the hash browns by adding the vegetable oil and butter to another large frying pan. Add the grated sweet potatoes, onion and red pepper blend, and celery leaves in a single layer.

3) Cook over a medium heat for 3 to 4 minutes without stirring. Stir in the salt and pepper, to taste, and continue to cook until the potatoes are tender, about 10 to 12 minutes.

4) Once the fillet has been seared, remove to a platter and in the same pan whisk the Bloody Mary mix, peach nectar, Worcestershire sauce, apple cider vinegar, brown sugar, garlic, hot sauce, cracked black pepper and chopped peaches. Simmer over a medium heat for 8 to 10 minutes.

5) Remove the sauce from the heat, place the seared pork in the pan and spoon the sauce over the top. Place the pan in the oven and cook until the pork reaches an internal temperature of 68C on an instant-read thermometer.

6) Remove the meat from the oven and allow it to sit for a few minutes before slicing. Arrange the sweet potato hash browns and sliced pork on individual dishes and top with some sauce. Garnish with fresh peach slices and a sprinkling of parsley.
