Flash in the Pan Pork

Another quick mid-week meal. Flash in the pan pork is exactly what the title says, quick, easy and is whipped up in no time. I am always on the luck out for quick and easy meals after a long day at work and find chicken and pork tends to be firm favourites when I want a meaty, yet quick dinner. I really liked the creamyness of the yogurt alongside the mustard, the perfect and easy sauce to make. I served my flash in the pan pork with sweetcorn and kale, but feel free to follow the recipe to the latter.
Here is how my flash in the pan pork turned out:

Preparation time 5 minutes
Cooking time 15 minutes
Nutritional information, per serving 346 calories, 12g fat (of which 4g saturates), 32g carbohydrate, 0.6 salt.

700g new potatoes, scrubbed, halved if large
175g runner beans
a little sunflower or olive oil
4 pork escalopes (I used chopped)
150ml hot chicken stock
2tbsp wholegrain mustard
a squeeze of lemon juice
150g yoghurt

1) Cook the new potatoes in a large pan of boiling salted water for 10 minutes. Add the beans/vegetables and cook for a further 5 minutes until tender.
2) Meanwhile, heat the oil in a large non-stick frying pan over a medium heat, and cook the pork for 3 minutes on each side until browned. Remove from the pan and keep warm. Add the stock and mustard to the pan, and increase the heat to reduce the liquid by half.
3) Just before serving, reduce the heat and add the yogurt and lemon juice. Put the pork back in the pan to coat with the sauce and warm through. Serve with the potatoes and beans.




  1. That looks lovely! How much yoghurt did you use?

  2. superfast midweek meals are the best aren't they... love the creamy sauce!

  3. I used 150g yoghurt, forgot to add in the recipe. I wanted to make the sauce creamier x
