Pork cutlets with chargrilled fennel and orange salad

Here’s a fresh dinner idea bursting with flavour. These tender pork cutlets are paired with a tangy orange and chargrilled fennel salad.





  • 2 tsp fennel seeds, lightly crushed
  • 1 long red chilli, seeded, finely chopped (optional)
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 1/4 cup (60ml) olive oil
  • 4 (about 225g each) Coles Australian Pork Cutlets
  • 120g pkt Coles Australian Baby Spinach
  • 2 small fennel, thinly sliced, fronds reserved
  • 2 large oranges, peeled, segmented
  • 2 tbs orange juice
  • 1 tsp wholegrain mustard
  • 100g fetta, crumbled



Combine fennel seeds, chilli, if using, garlic and 1½ tbs oil in a small bowl. Season. Reserve half the fennel seed mixture in a separate bowl. Rub pork with the remaining fennel seed mixture.


Heat a barbecue grill or chargrill on medium-high. Cook the pork for 3-4 mins each side or until just cooked through. Brush reserved fennel seed mixture over the pork. Transfer to a plate and cover with foil. Set aside for 5 mins to rest.


Meanwhile, drizzle the sliced fennel with 2 tsp oil. Cook on the grill, turning, for 2 mins or until the fennel is lightly charred and just tender.


Place the spinach, orange segments, charred fennel and reserved fennel fronds in a large bowl. Whisk the orange juice, mustard and remaining oil in a small bowl. Season. Drizzle over the spinach mixture. Gently toss to combine. Transfer to a serving platter. Sprinkle with fetta. Serve pork with the salad.
