Maple pork with pomegranate and mint couscous

Despite seeming a bit fancy, this is stupidly quick and easy to make: five ingredients and about 15 minutes cooking time total including prep.

  • Pork medallions
  • Couscous (I used a Mediterranean flavour I happened to have in the pantry)
  • Maple syrup (or glaze, we actually used golden syrup in maple flavour as that's what I had in!)
  • Pomegranate seeds
  • Fresh mint

To Make:
  • Glaze uncooked pork with syrup and place in a griddle pan (I didn't bother leaving it to marinade although you could)
  • Cook pork as normal, applying another layer of syrup each time you flip it
  • Cook couscous according to instructions (in our case, add boiling water, cover for five minutes and then separate with fork)
  • Sprinkle pomegranate and mint over couscous, add the pork and sprinkle another topping of pomegranate and mint
And that's all! Really tasty, quick and a bit fancy which makes it ideal to serve to mid-week  guests.

Steve is away this weekend and I'd be lying if I said I wasn't pretty excited to have a chilled weekend with just me, the boy and the bump! Happy Friday folks- we made it!


  1. Love dishes that look fantastically complicated but are actually relatively simple-- beautiful! Enjoy your weekend!

  2. I absolutely love pomegranates!! I think they are such a delicious fruit, so it's nice to see them incorporated into your meal! I would love for you to check out my recent outfit post too, it's Autumn inspired with the colours and fabrics :D :D

  5. Wow, that looks amazing! I love pomegranate flavor but never made anything with an actual pomegranate.

    Your family is adorable, loved your pictures from Disney. It looks like you had a wonderful time despite being the bag holder!

    Enjoy your week!

  6. This looks FANTASTIC!!! The bf really likes pork (me, not so much), but I think I just might have to give this a try! I love pomegranate, why not put it on some pork?!?! ha ha :)
