Pork With Maple & Mustard Cream Sauce



I like cooking pork steaks on a weeknight as they're quick and easy to prepare at the end of a busy day! this dish is simple to prepare and uses few ingredients, making it perfect for busy nights. oh and it doesn't hurt that it tastes good too ;-)




4 pork steaks
2 tablespoons seeded mustard
1/4 cup maple syrup
1 tablespoon olive oil
1/2 small cup dry white wine
cream

place pork in shallow dish, pour over combined mustard & syrup, stand 10 minutes. drain pork, reserving marinade.

heat oil in pan, add pork and cook untill browned on both sides & done to your liking. remove and keep warm.

deglaze the pan with half the wine. mix the other half wine with reserved marinade, pour it into the pan and bring to the boil. simmer uncovered untill slightly thickened. towards the end turn the heat down low & add the cream (I used about 1/4 cup).

put the steaks back in the pan turn to coat with sauce, then serve with sauce poured over. crusty bread and mash goes nice with this, noodles would be good too!
