Method

  • 1. In a large saucepan, boil baby potatoes until tender. In a separate saucepan, steam green beans until tender.

  • 2. Season pork with salt and pepper. In a large frying pan, melt butter over a moderate heat. Cook chops for 2 minutes on each side or until browned.

  • 3. In a small jug, combine mustard and water. Pour over chops and reduce heat to low. Cover and cook for 10 minutes or until pork is cooked through. Transfer pork to a heatproof plate, cover and keep warm.

  • 4. Continue to cook mustard sauce, uncovered, stirring occasionally over a low heat for 3 minutes or until reduced by half. Add cream and cook, stirring, for a further 2 minutes.

  • 5. Divide chops among serving plates and pour sauce over. Serve with baby potatoes and greens beans. Sprinkle with parsley to serve.

  • Fresh Tip: You could swap Dijon mustard for wholegrain mustard or basil pesto, if preferred.
