Chef Cut Tender Lean Pork in Mustard Cream Sauce

Price per serving for two: $ 2.85

I can always count on a nice lean cut of pork from the local butcher. This dish requires very little time and money. You will need besides the pork loin some heavy cream and your favorite Dijon mustard.  Tonight's side, roasted potatoes and mushrooms if you like.

Take your covered skillet out and melt in 3 tbs of olive oil and the same of coconut oil. Then shake in red pepper flakes, garlic powder and salt (according to dietary allowances) plus your preferred dried herb seasonings. As you have already noticed, I always start every dish of meat with those basic. Why reinvent the wheel. However, if want to try something new, you can always reduce your savory to simple salt and pepper with a fresh squeeze of citrus or fresh herbs; i.e. mint or thyme. The loin can be 'chef' cut into thick wedges. They take no time at all to sear up. Simmer then for 8 min. At the end, add 1/4 cup of heavy cream and a large dollop of Dijon.

As for the potatoes, simple... put cut halves into a glass dish, coat with olive oil and parmesan along with dried herbs and bake for 30 min and or until tender. You can do them quicker in the microwave for 10 min. and then in the broiler for 3 on high.

If you have mushroom lovers, then try an additional side of champions. Saute in butter with a bit of cream and fresh thyme and Voila! ...ready to be served.
