    Ingredients
    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.
