    Sautéed pork with peas & leeks

    • Preparation time: 10 minutes
    • Cooking time: 20 minutes
    • Total time: 30 minutes

    Serves: 3-4


    1½ tbsp olive oil
    1 pack Waitrose 1 Free Range Pork Leg Escalopes
    2 leeks, trimmed and sliced
    240g frozen peas
    100ml fresh vegetable stock
    1 tbsp dijon mustard
    2 tbsp reduced fat soured cream
    ½ lemon, zest and juice
    1 tbsp chopped tarragon


    1. Heat 1 tbsp oil in a large frying pan over a medium- high heat. Season the pork escalopes and fry for 2-3 minutes on each side (in batches if necessary) until golden and almost cooked through. Lift from the pan and set aside on a plate.

    2. Heat the remaining ½ tbsp oil in the pan and turn the heat to medium. Sauté the leeks with a pinch of salt for 10 minutes until soft. Tip in the peas and stock and simmer over a high heat for 2 minutes.

    3. Slice the pork and return to the pan, along with any resting juices, the mustard and soured cream. Season and stir everything together. Fold through the lemon zest and juice and tarragon before serving with new potatoes or steamed rice, if liked.
