Creamy Cider Mustard Pork with New Potatoes and Green Beans – 9sp

Me and the OH love our pork at the moment so tonight, with the pork out the freezers and all defrosted, I fancied trying something new and easy. I opened my fridge to see what we had that I could use up and popped the following together and it was delicious! The OH couldn’t believe it was so low in point and it was so filling and tasty. If you don’t have any cider to hand I think it would be just as nice without it but it does just add something a little bit different!



Serves 2 = 9sp (previously 12pp) each

200g new potatoes, halved

2 x 150g lean pork loin steak

1 onion, sliced

2 x garlic cloves, crushed

200g (or however many you fancy) mushrooms, sliced

100ml dry cider

1 x bay leaf (optional)

4 x tablespoons Sainsbury’s be good to yourself half fat crème fraiche

2 x teaspoon whole grain mustard

Salt and Black Pepper

Green beans


Pop your potatoes on to boil in salted water for 20 minutes. While the potatoes are boiling pop your onions, garlic and mushrooms in a frying pan and fry for around 5 minutes in 1kal and a little water until the onions are nice and soft. Then add your cider and bay leaf and cook for a minute or two. Then add your crème fraiche, wholegrain mustard and a splash or boiling water. Turn the heat down and simmer the sauce, stirring every now and then until everything else is ready.

Take a griddle pan, season your pork steak and cook for around five minutes on each side until cooked through. If you don’t have griddle pan just use a normal frying pan. Once cooked take the pork steaks out the pan and pop to one side to rest. Drain your potatoes when cooked and add into the frying pan you cooked your pork in with a splash of water and fry for a few minutes so they take on all the lovely pork juices. In a separate pan boil your green beans for five minutes.

Once everything is cooked plate up your pork, potatoes and green beans and top with the creamy sauce.

    This was the first recipe I tried, it was so nice I’ve become hooked on skinny kitchen recipes. I didnt have cider in mine but still so tasty.

    Making this tonight but not sure what I’m doing wrong as have worked it out to be 11 points per portion, it’s only 9sp if I don’t include the potatoes, either way it will still be yummy!

      Hi Gemma, did you work it out on the recipe builder for two people? The only things which need pointing are the potatoes, pork (need to use lean I.e cut the fat off), cider, creme fraiche and mustard. I just put it through again and it’s defo 9sp per portion 😊

        Hi, thanks for getting back to me, I think the recipe app was coming out higher as I hadn’t trimmed the fat off before weighing, also couldn’t find Sainsbury’s Creme fraiche on app so pointed as another low fat and it was giving me higher points per portion, after making it though it’s really yummy( already tried your aubergine pasta) and the Inlaws loved it too🙂

    Hi Laura. I’m planning on making this tonight for four. Would I have to double to quantity of Cider as well as the rest of the ingredients?…This will be the 3rd recipe that I’ve tried of yours and I love your blog! Keep em coming please! Thank you.

    This recipe was DIVINE! I don’t like cider as a drink, so rather than waste the rest of the bottle I made a huge pan of it then froze it in individual portions in freezer bags, it’s lovely with salmon and chicken too!
