Pork cutlets with pan-fried apple and sage

INGREDIENTS
4 (500g) potatoes
4 x pork cutlets
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon butter
2 apples, peeled, cored, cut into wedges (we used Granny Smith's)
2 garlic cloves
2 tablespoons plain flour
16 sage leaves
¼ cup white wine
¼ cup chicken stock

PREPARATION
1. Steam or boil the potatoes until tender. When cool enough to touch, peel and slice into wedges.

2. Preheat the oven to 120°C. Use the heel of your hand to bash the pork cutlets. Heat the oil and butter in a frying pan over medium heat.

3. When the butter is foaming add the pork cutlets and cook for 4-5 minutes each side until just cooked. Place in the oven while you cook the apple and potato.

4. Reheat the oil and butter in the pan over medium heat. Sauté the potatoes, apple, garlic and sage leaves until the butter is golden brown. Add the wine and cook for 2 minutes, then the stock and cook for another 2 minutes.

5. To serve, place a pork cutlet on each plate and a pile of the sautéed apple combo and sauce.

NOTES
This is a taste sensation and a lighter, easier meal to prepare than Roast pork.
Those of you with state-of-the-art barbecuing systems can adapt the recipe to the bbq - cook the pork, apples and potatoes on the bbq plate, sauté sage, oil and butter in small saucepan on the bbq. Or prepare the sage butter inside on the stove. To serve, drizzle the pork, apple and potatoes with the sage butter.

Nine great tips to make drinking water taste better

We all know how important it is to drink plenty of water and stay hydrated. But many of us just don’t find drinking regular water all that enjoyable.

The steps are easy to follow in all the ‘recipes’: just chop up the ingredients, slightly squeeze them to get the juice out, put them in some water and leave it in the fridge. You’ll need about 34 US fl. oz (one liter) of water, and the amount of ingredients can vary depending on your preferences.

1. Lemon and strawberry

Chop half a lemon into wedges, add a cup of chopped strawberries. Squeeze the juice out of the ingredients. Add a sprig of rosemary (optional) and pour in some water.

2. Orange, lime and lemon

Put all the ingredients, sliced up, into a jar. Squeeze the juice out, add some mint, then add the water.

3. Mint and pineapples

You’ll need only a cup of chopped pineapple for this one. Squash all the chunks, add a sprig of mint, and pour in the water.

4. Raspberry and lime

Cut one lime into wedges or rounds, add half a cup of raspberries, and pour in the water.

5. Blackberry and sage

Slightly squeeze a handful of blackberries and a couple of sage leaves together and add in some water.

6. Orange, ginger, and pineapple

You will need half a lemon, half a cup of sliced pineapple, and a tablespoon of ground ginger. Add all the ingredients into a jar, squash them together and pour in the water.

7. Watermelon and rosemary

Take a cup of cubed watermelon and mash it. Add a sprig of rosemary that will instantly release its juice. Don’t mix the ingredients too much as you may risk getting your drink tasting too much of rosemary. Then pour in the water.

8. Cucumber and mint

Chop half of a cucumber into rounds, slice up a lime, add fresh mint leaves, and pour in some water.

9. Fruit ice

This is a perfect recipe for lazy people. If you want a glass of water that’s seriously tasty and do so in just a few seconds, you can prepare some ice cubes with slices of different fruit, berries or mint beforehand. That way you’ll be able to cool the water quickly and give it a nice taste at any moment.
