With tender pork loin, sweet dates, cranberry and fragrant ground spices, this delicious pork dish can be rustled up in just 30 minutes and makes a great midweek meal.
- In a large pan, fry the onion in 1 tsp of oil until softened. Add the ground spices and 1 tsp cumin; cook for 1 minute. Stir in the cabbage, dates, sugar, cranberry juice and vinegar. Cover and simmer for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally, until tender.
- Between 2 sheets of clingfilm, bash each steak with a rolling pin to 1/2cm (1/4in) thick. On a plate, mix the breadcrumbs with the remaining cumin. Dust each steak in the flour, then dip in the egg, and finally turn to coat in the breadcrumbs.
- Heat the remaining oil between 2 large nonstick frying pans. Fry 2 steaks per pan, over a high heat, for 2-3 minutes on each side, until golden. Serve with the cabbage and a handful of rocket.
Freezing and defrosting guidelines
The pork chops can be frozen - once they have cooled completely, transfer them to an airtight, freezer-safe container, seal and freeze for up to 1-3 months. To serve, defrost thoroughly in the fridge overnight before reheating. Loosely cover with foil and bake until dish is thoroughly heated through. Reheat until piping hot.
