Ingredients
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 1 level tsp Asda Paprika
  • 1 level tsp Asda Ground Cumin
  • 1 level tsp Asda Ground Coriander
  • 300g couscous
  • 100g dried apricots, cut into small pieces
  • Zest of 1/2 unwaxed lemon, grated
  • 50g flaked almonds
  • 400g Asda Butcher's Selection Pork Fillet, trimmed and cut into 1cm slices
  • 350g green beans
  • Lemon quarters, to serve
Method
  • Heat 1 tbsp olive oil in a large pan and cook the onion until soft. Stir in the spices, then stir over a low heat for 30 seconds, no more. Remove from the heat.

  • Add the couscous, apricots and lemon zest and stir once. Pour in 375ml boiling water. Cover the pan and leave to stand for 10 minutes.

  • Meanwhile, toast the almonds in a dry frying pan over a medium heat until golden, stirring all the time so they don't burn. Set aside.

  • Heat the remaining oil in the frying pan and cook the pork for 3-4 minutes on each side or until cooked through.

  • Heat the couscous and stir in the almonds. Serve with the pork, green beans and lemon.
