I've been meaning to take part in the Royal Foodie Joust hosted by The Leftover Queen and finally got around to it!
This month the challenge was to create a dish that included pork, any citrus fruit and pink or white peppercorns. So here's what I came up with:
Pork and Mandarin salad
1 pork chop
White peppercorn (ground)
150g tin of mandarin oranges
2 tbsp syrup from mandarin oranges
2 tbsp honey
1 tsp cider vinegar
Handful of spinach, a handful of watercress and a handful of rocket (about 100g in total)
Toasted almond flakes
1. Cut the pork into strips, lightly salt and pepper, then fry in an oiled pan for 6-7 minutes until cooked through.
2. Mix the syrup, honey and cider vinegar and heat gently in a pan for 4 minutes.
3. Place the leaves in your dish, top with mandarin segments and pork. Dress with the syrup mix and top with the almond flakes.
