Remove meat from marinade and let most of the marinade drain off.

Heat a pan to smoking hot, drizzle with oil and sear meat for 5 minutes each side.

Nestle mandarins and bay leaves around the meat. Pour marinade on top and season with salt and pepper.

Cover with tin foil and bake for 10 – 15 minutes for medium and longer for well done.
