Ingredients

  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 3 tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tsp Dijon mustard
  • 2 garlic clove, crushed
  • 4 boneless pork loin chops
  • 2 handfuls green olive, pitted and halved
  • large handful basil, chopped

Method

  1. Mix the oil with vinegar, mustard and garlic. Score the meat on both sides, season, then put into a dish. Pour over the balsamic mixture and leave to marinate for 5 mins.

  2. Heat a griddle pan until very hot. Lift the pork from the marinade, scraping off any garlic, then cook for 4 mins on each side. Remove the meat and keep warm. Pour the marinade into the pan with the olives, cook for 2 mins, then stir in the basil. Pour any juices from the pork into the pan, drizzle the sauce over the pork and serve with pasta.
