Pork in a creamy sherry sauce

I’ve been meaning to post this recipe for quite some time but never got round to it, having been asked what it is in a comment on my Meal Planning Monday post yesterday though I thought I should pull my finger out. My variation on Nadia Sawalha’s “Posh Pork”


  • Pork chops, or any cut of pork you prefer, escalopes work well too
  • frylite
  • 1/2 onion, chopped
  • 2 carrots, peeled and cut into batons
  • 20 mushrooms, sliced
  • 50ml sherry (3 syns)
  • 1 tsp ground ginger
  • 300ml chicken stock
  • 4 tsp Dijon Mustard (2 syns)
  • 2 or 3 tbsp quark or low fat creme fraiche


  • Cook the pork, in the meantime heat the frylite in a pan and cook the onions, carrots and mushrooms until tender
  • Add the sherry and reduce by half
  • Add the stock, ginger and season
  • Reduce until the stock starts to thicken
  • Add the mustard and creme fraiche/quark and serve

This is delicious and you would never guess that it’s only just over 1 syn per serving, (fellow Slimming Worlders)  it tastes really luxurious and definitely one that’s in the family favourites list – and even popular with the fussy 10 year old too!
