Method

  1. Cut the pork into 3cm thick slices, season with salt and pepper, then lightly coat in the flour (the easiest way to do this is to put the flour and seasoning in a large food bag, add the pork and shake well). Heat the oil in a large frying pan, preferably non-stick, then add the pork and quickly fry until it is browned all over. Cook the pork for about 5 mins, then remove to a plate and cover with foil while you make the sauce.
  2. Add the onion to the pan (with a touch more oil if needed), then quickly fry until lightly coloured, add the stock, then bring to the boil. Boil hard for a couple of minutes to reduce the stock a little, stir in the maple syrup, mustard and lemon juice, then bring back to the boil, stirring well.
  3. Return the pork to the pan and gently simmer for a further 3-4 mins until it is cooked through. Sprinkle with parsley, if using.

lovely tasty recipe, found that there was not quite enough sauce though so would double the sauce quantities next time, used dijon mustard instead of whole grain, worked really well

I really love this! Hubby wasn't as struck as he's not a huge mustard fan. Soooo full of flavour and really ballsy. I added 3tbsp of honey as had no maple syrup and it was perfect.

Lovely - popular all round. Used mostly honey as I only had a tiny bit of maple syrup left and it was scrumptious - I didn't change any proportions of stock or anything and it wasn't too runny at all - lovely and thick.

Fantastic with a great heap of buttery mashed potato. Add more stock and less mustard as the mustard is very over powering.

Made this for my husband and 2 young daughters and it went down a storm! My husband found the maple syrup a touch too sweet (I did add extra though) but the girls loved it. I too reduced the liquid to around 170ml and used cubed pork and it was fine. I didn't have the mustard but it didn't seem to matter. Served with saffron rice and potatoes - yummy!!

I loved this recipe. I used 4 quite small loin steaks, only 150ml stock, added some chestnut mushrooms but didn't bother with the parsley. There was enough for 2 servings.

Used the sauce as a glaze on pork chops, left to marinate for an hour or so. Brilliant - worked well.

I absolutely loved this. It was quite sweet but went really well with pasta. Will definately make again.

An excellent and impressive quick meal, very tasty and looked nice on the plate. I used 150ml veg stock too as didn't want it too runny, and as a result the sauce was the perfect consistency. Added alittle more mustard than maple syrup to counteract the sweetness. Delicious!

This is one for sweet-tooths. My sugar-addicted children loved it, but it could have done with more oomph for me. I didn't add too much stock, as I didn't want it looking as soupy as the picture.

This dish was ok but not as nice as I was expecting. With such an array of flavours i was expecting this to taste delicious and I was a bit disappointed. I felt like there was something missing. I served this with creamy garlic mash and steamed asparagus so it made a nice meal overall but nothing about it would inspire me to make it again.

This is lovely!!! We did it for 2 servings, with one loin chop each and the full quantity of sauce, clean plates all round. I'll certainly be adding this to my recipe file, and will double the quantity of sauce for 4 servings. I served it with creamy mashed potato, mange tout and spring greens stirfried in sesame oil. It made a very colourful dish.
