1 To make tamarillo sauce, heat oil in a small saucepan. Add onion and gently fry, cover and cook for 5 minutes. Add tamarillo flesh, sugar and red wine. Bring to the boil then reduce heat and simmer for 20 minutes.
2 Cut potatoes in quarters and place in a saucepan. Cover with cold water. Bring to the boil and cook for 12 minutes. Drain water then mash with milk.
3 Place Brussels sprouts in a shallow microwave-proof bowl with a little water. Cover then cook on high for 2-3 minutes. Or cook in a steamer for 4 minutes.
4 Spray a frying pan with a little oil and bring to a high heat. Cook schnitzels for 2 minutes on each side. (If schnitzels are thin, cook for only 1 minute on each side.) Cover with tinfoil and set aside in a warm place. Add Brussels sprouts to pan juices and toss through. Serve mash on warmed plates, top with pork, a large serving of tamarillo sauce and sprouts.
Add a cinnamon stick to tamarillo sauce for interesting flavour.
Any extra sauce can be chilled and used again as relish or an accompaniment to a cheese board.
