Pork Cutlets with Creamy Mustard Sauce

Standard

I picked up some nice lean pork medalions at Coles this week in my weekly shop as they looked particularly good.  I’m not a big pork eater, something to do with being a kid and stuffing my face with crackling and being Very Very sick afterwards!, so unfortunately the family suffers a little!  I’ve been easing back into eating pork and was looking for a nice way to have our pork, so jumped on taste.com.au and found this little gem!

Pork with a creamy mustard sauce

Pork cutlets with Creamy Mustard Sauce

Ingredients (serves 4)

  • 800g Desiree potatoes, unpeeled, cut into wedges
  • 2 red capsicum, deseeded, thickly sliced
  • 1/4 cup wholegrain mustard
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/3 cup chicken stock
  • 4 (250g each) rindless pork loin cutlets
  • 1/2 cup thickened cream
  • 1/4 cup flat-leaf parsley leaves, chopped

Method

  1. Preheat oven to 200°C. Place potatoes and capsicum in a large roasting pan. Combine mustard, oil, stock and salt and pepper in a jug. Pour over vegetables. Toss to combine.
  2. Place pork cutlets on top of vegetables. Season with salt and pepper. Roast for 30 minutes or until pork is just cooked through. Transfer pork to a plate. Cover with foil and stand for 10 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, add cream and parsley to vegetables in pan. Stir to combine.Return to oven for 10 minutes or until heated through.
  4. Place vegetables and pork onto plates. Spoon over creamy mustard sauce. Serve.

Notes

  • I cooked the pork chops in a frypan so I could control the cooking
  • I added carrots as well to the vegie mix
  • I found I had to add more chicken stock as the vegetables cooked, but that might just be my oven
  • The kids ate this OK…thought it might be a bit grown up, but the only thing Cayden struggled with was the actual pork.
