Lightly Spiced Pork and Green Beans

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by Sackville

I adapted this recipe from one I saw in BBC Good Food magazine. I like the fact that it's all done in one skillet so there's not so much clean-up afterwards. It's highly versatile, so please play with it to suit whatever is in your fridge.

This was very good and easy to make. I followed the recipe and next time I think I will throw in some more greens but wouldn't change anything else. Thank you for posting this!
