    Serves: 4 

    • 4 lean boneless pork loin cutlets or bone-in pork chops
    • 1 tablespoon honey
    • 1½ tablespoons soy sauce
    • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
    • ¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon
    • pinch of ground nutmeg

    1. Nick the trimmed fatty edge of the cutlets using a sharp knife at regular intervals.
    2. Blend together the honey, soy sauce, lemon juice and spices in a shallow dish. Lay the pork pieces in this mixture, turning them and basting well with a spoon. Cover with plastic wrap and leave to marinate in the fridge for at least 2 hours.
    3. Heat the oil in a large heavy-based frying pan. Drain the pork, reserving the marinade, and pan-fry over a gentle heat, for 6–7 minutes on each side, depending on their thickness.
    4. Remove the meat from the pan and place on a warmed plate. Pour off the excess fat from the pan. Pour the reserved marinade into the pan, reduce it slightly over a high heat, then stir in the mustard and blend well. Season to taste with salt and pepper, then pour over the pork and serve immediately, with spinach.

    This recipe was delightful. So easy to prepare and cook but so tasty and the pork was so tender. Loved including the marinade as a gravy. Well done:-  -  20 Sep 2011  (Review from Allrecipes AU | NZ)


    Very quick and easy! And best of all tasty. I cooked mine on the bbq after marinating. Mmmm.  -  08 Nov 2009  (Review from Allrecipes AU | NZ)


    This is "yummy". I served it over a stack of potato pancakes and a mixed green salad. My family loved it (even my fussy husband).  -  20 Feb 2009  (Review from Allrecipes AU | NZ)
