Method

  1. Mix the mustard with the honey and enough orange juice to loosen, then smear all over the steaks. Preheat the grill until hot and line the grill pan with foil. Grill the steaks for 4 minutes on each side or until cooked, brushing over any excess glaze.
  2. While the pork is grilling, tip the couscous and spring onions into a bowl. Spoon the oil into the stock, pour onto the couscous and stir. Cover tightly with cling film and leave for 5-6 minutes or until the liquid is absorbed.
  3. Fluff up the couscous with a fork and stir in the tomatoes, then season. Spoon onto a warmed serving dish and top with the steaks and any pan juices.

very tasty recipe - I used turkey steaks instead of pork - worked wonders. I also added diced cucumber to the couscous

Made this for evening meal, sticky glazed pork was lovely. Made a few personnal changes to the ingredients. No Mustard used, and the couscous wasstuffed in to grilled peppers. My partner loved it!
