Hubby’s dinner

20121121-113259.jpg

My husband is very fit, puts me and most others I know to shame. He’s been doing an evening judo class recently, so I prep him dinner to take to work and he eats it on his way home. Usually this meal is leftovers from the weekend, but this week we didn’t have any. It was also the day before the shopping arrives and our fridge was rather sparse, so I had to be creative. Fortunately we still had lots of delicious pork chops in the freezer so I was able to rustle up this lovely stew for him.

Ingredients (for one hungry person):
Large pork chop
Small red onion (finely chopped)
Large carrot (finely chopped)
3 mushrooms (quartered)
2 large tomatoes or 100g of tinned
Handful of spinach (I used five cubes of frozen)
Tbsp olive oil
Tbsp balsamic vinegar
Tbsp sage

Method:
– get a non stick frying pan or griddle really hot over a med-high heat

– coat the chop in the olive oil and sage, sear in the hot pan for a few mins on each side

– take the chop out of the pan and cut it into small bite sized pieces, leave to one side

– in the pork juices add the onion, mushroom and carrot, cook for about five mins over a med heat

– add the pork and rest of the ingredients, stir well. Put the lid on the pan and simmer gently for 15-30 mins over a low heat

– if cooking for more than one person, double or tripple up on ingredients and serve with green veggies
