When you have a little more time and are in the mood to cook, but don’t want to whip up thousands of calories and sabotage your weight loss progress, this recipe is a very tasty option.

  1. In a frying pan, sauté pork, 2-3 minutes on each side.
  2. In a frying pan on medium heat, sauté leeks and mushrooms until tender, stir in crushed garlic, then, stir in flour and simmer for 2 to 3 minutes. Whisk in merlot and bring to a boil. Bring down the temperature, trickle in the broth and keep stirring until all the lumps have disappeared. Add thyme and mustard.
  3. Put the pork back in the pan and simmer for 5 more minutes or until pork is fully cooked. Add in cream and stir. Let simmer about 2-3 minutes.
