Pork Medallions with a Honey Mustard Sauce
Serves: 4
1 tbsp chopped fresh rosemary or 1 tsp dried rosemary
2 garlic cloves, crushed
1 tsp grated lemon zest
¼ tsp salt
2 pork fillets (about 250 g each), trimmed of all excess fat and cut into medallions
⅓ cup (80 ml) lemon juice
¼ cup (90 g) yellow box honey
¼ cup (60 g) Dijon mustard
½ cup (125 ml) low-fat milk
1 tbsp plain flour

Preheat the oven to 200°C. Line a small roasting tin with foil. Combine the rosemary, garlic, lemon zest and salt in a small bowl and rub evenly over the pork, then transfer the pork to the tin. Mix the lemon juice, honey and mustard together in a small bowl. Transfer half to a small saucepan and set aside.

Brush the pork with 2 tbsp of the honey–mustard sauce in the bowl. Roast the pork until glazed and golden brown, about 20 minutes, basting two or three times with the remaining sauce.

Meanwhile, pour the milk into a small bowl and whisk in the flour until smooth. Warm the reserved honey–mustard sauce in the small saucepan over a low heat. Gradually whisk in the milk mixture and cook, whisking constantly, until the sauce thickens, about 3 minutes. Serve with the pork medallions.
