Punchy herb pork & white beans


4 garlic cloves

2 tbs olive oil

1 tbs fresh rosemary leaves

1 tbs chopped fresh sage leaves

4 pork cutlets, French trimmed

2 tbs lemon juice

85g mild pancetta, coarsely chopped

1 red onion, finely chopped

1 red capsicum, finely chopped

400g can cannellini beans, rinsed, drained

60g baby spinach leaves


Step 1

Place 3 garlic cloves, 1 1/2 tablespoons oil, half the rosemary and half the sage in a mortar and pound with a pestle until crushed. Season. Transfer to a large bowl. Add pork. Toss to coat. Set aside for 5 minutes to marinate.

Step 2

Heat a large frying pan over medium heat. Cook pork, turning, for 8 minutes or until just cooked through. Add lemon juice. Transfer pork to a plate and the pan juices to a bowl. Cover both with foil to keep warm.

Step 3

Finely chop remaining garlic, rosemary and sage. Heat remaining oil over medium heat. Cook pancetta, stirring, for 2 minutes or until golden. Add the onion, capsicum, garlic, rosemary and sage. Cook, stirring, for 5 minutes or until soft. Stir in beans for 2 minutes. Stir in the spinach for 1 minute or until spinach just wilts. Season with pepper.

Step 4

Divide bean mixture among plates. Top with pork cutlets and drizzle over pan juices.
