Pork chops with cabbage and green lentil salad
Juicy pork chops, dressed with a lightly stewed cabbage and green lentil salad.

2 tbsp olive oil

1 red onion, peeled and sliced thinly

2 apples, cored and sliced

½ small Savoy cabbage, shredded

1 tbsp chopped sage

600g (4) pork chops

125ml apple cider

1 tbsp wholegrain mustard

400ml low fat yogurt

390g tinned green lentils in water, drained and rinsed

Heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil in a frying pan and cook the onion for 2-3 minutes before adding the apple, cabbage and sage.

Cook on a low heat for 5-6 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the cabbage is soft and cooked.

Meanwhile heat the remaining oil in another frying pan and cook the pork chops for 5-7 minutes on each side.

Remove from the pan once cooked and keep warm.

Pour the cider into the pan and let it bubble for a minute and then stir in the mustard and yoghurt.

Simmer for 1-2 minutes scraping the bottom cooking bits into the mixture.

Stir the lentils into the cabbage mixture and heat through for 1-2 minutes.

Serve the pork chops with the lentil sauce spooned over.
