This succulent pork cutlet and apple dish is a one-pan wonder that’s done and dusted in just 25 minutes.





  • 2 tsp ground paprika
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 tbs olive oil
  • 4 Coles Australian Pork Cutlets or Loin Chops
  • 1 red onion, cut into wedges
  • 4 small red apples, halved lengthways
  • 1 tbs Dijon mustard
  • 1/2 cup (125ml) apple cider or apple juice
  • 1 cup (250ml) chicken stock
  • 2 tbs maple syrup



Combine paprika, cumin and half the oil in a bowl. Add pork and season. Toss to combine.


Heat remaining oil in a large frying pan over medium-high heat. Add onion and apple and cook for 1-2 mins each side or until golden. Transfer to a plate.


Cook the pork for 2 mins each side or until golden brown. Transfer to the plate with the onion and apple. Add the mustard to the pan with the apple cider or apple juice and bring to the boil. Cook for 2 mins or until mixture reduces by half. Add the stock and maple syrup and bring to the boil. Return onion, apple and pork to the pan. Cook for 2-3 mins or until pork is cooked through. Season with pepper.

Serve with fried sage leaves.

Waste wise

Only got pears in the fruit bowl? Use them here instead of apples – just cut into wedges before cooking
