Mustard Garlic Marinated Pork with an English Caesar Slaw

Several years ago this was an economic go to for me and always  a hit with my kids. Nowadays when I make this for my Hubby’s lunch the reaction is always favorable. It’s still a hit! This is a healthy, light, yet filling meal. The beauty of this dish is it does not require too much meat, the cooking time is quick and the meat is lean yet flavorful…

Mustard Garlic Marinaded Pork
4 thinly sliced pork loin medallions, sliced into strips
2 Tbs Dijon mustard
3 cloves of garlic roughly chopped
1/2 a lemon squeezed
2 Tbs of olive oil
salt and pepper
4 flour tortillas
2 cups already shredded cabbage
1/4 cup Caesar Dressing (recipe to follow)
1/4 cup shredded Pecorino cheese

Mix the marinade with the sliced pork, cover and place in the refrigerator for 15 minutes. In a separate bowl mix cabbage and Caesar dressing and set aside. Heat skillet and saute pork in marinade until golden brown, (about 5 minutes). Heat tortillas, add 1/4th of the meat to each tortilla, top with slaw, chopped parsley and some shredded Pecorino cheese. Light, delicious and filling.

English Caesar Dressing
1-2 Anchovies (optional but suggested. Just try it once before you say, ‘no’… please!)
1 lemon squeezed
1 and 1/2 tsp Worcestershire sauce (Lea & Perrins is the preferred brand for this Caesar)
1 Tbs Dijon mustard
3 large cloves of garlic
1/2 cup Mayonnaise
3 Tbs olive oil
2 egg yolks (very lightly coddled eggs). Directions below.
1/2 cup shredded pecorino

Place all the ingredients in a bullet or blender and blend everything together until smooth. Save in a mason jar and use as needed. Add pecorino when serving on romaine, slaw or whatever.

Footnote: To coddle an egg for this Caesar, I use an English method. Bring a small pot of water to a boil. Place the eggs in the pot for exactly one minute. Remove and place immediately in an ice bath. Crack eggs and separate yolks. This method is for anyone who does not like to use raw yokes. I personally don’t have a problem with it, but just in case you do…
