Clementine and Cranberry Pork Steaks

January 15, 2014

After Christmas I always find that I have a lot of Cranberry sauce left over. I love the taste of cranberry sauce and use it on sandwiches a lot. I wanted to be more inventive and use it in a recipe for a main meal. So often we just use Cranberry Sauce to accompany dishes but I felt it would work really well in a sauce. What better accompaniment to the tang of cranberry than the juice of Clementine. The zing really adds to the taste. Often orange is used in the cranberry sauce recipe, I just make mine with cranberries and sugar.

I decided to combine the Clementine and cranberry sauce with a little paprika to add some zing and serve them alongside pork steaks. The result is a very quick and easy dish which looks and tastes gorgeous. It looks as if a lot of time has been spent making it when really it only takes around 15 minutes to create. I think this would work perfectly for a Valentine Day dinner, served with a delicious dessert.

The dish passed the all important taste test, my family loved it and the plates were empty. My son does not normally eat all his pork chops but in this case it vanished very quickly. Definitely one I will be trying again.

    Very tasty! I love cranberry sauce and jelly, so often eat it, through the year. Don’t think I tried it with clementines, but sounds like an inspired combination
