Pork & cider with creamy mustard sauce

What a delicious dish (and very EASY recipe) this was… PORK & CIDER with creamy MUSTARD sauce.
Slow cooked, moist and meltingly tender. In fact this was SO easy to make, we quickly came to the conclusion that we will be making it again! It has to be one of the most tasty pork dishes we've eaten.
Despite using cream, the dish came to somewhere in the region of 650 calories.
We used loin of pork for the dish so there was very little fat on the surface. Skimming the casserole with a spoon took care of what little fat there was.
If you are looking for a bit of inspiration, this just might fit the bill. Serve the pork with rice if you like. Here's our fab recipe:
Serves 4-6
1 kg pork loin
100g smoked streaky bacon (chopped)
6 banana shallots (chopped)
2 sticks of celery (sliced)
1 tbsp wholegrain mustard
1 tbsp Dijon mustard
440ml can of cider
400ml chicken stock
100-150ml sour cream
Cut the pork into cubes. Brown in a frying pan with the bacon then transfer to a large saucepan.

Gently fry the shallots and celery to soften but not coloured. Transfer to the saucepan.

Pour the cider into the frying pan, boil then reduce heat and stir to pick up all those lovely browned, caramelised juices.

Transfer to the saucepan and add the chicken stock and mustard. 

Cook on a low heat (simmer) until the pork is tender - we left ours for just over two hours.

Before adding the cream, you might want to reduce the cooking liquid. If so, take the meat out and rapidly boil the liquid. This will concentrate the flavour more and thicken the sauce.

Turn heat off and allow to cool for five minutes before adding the sour cream. If you add the cream while the pork is cooking, it may split. 

Season to taste.
REMEMBER:  - Do you know how many calories you are allowed each day?
Here's a link to our very first blog post about our weight loss journey, which we began in January 2011. We started this blog as a way of recording what we ate while losing weight. The blog is a food diary, and contains lots of recipes, tips and ideas about losing weight.
