Balsamic Pork with Watercress

Impress your family with this light and tasty pork dish. Can also be served with green beans, broccolli or spring greens

  • 10 mins
  • 12 mins
  • Serves 4


2 oranges

2 tbsp balsamic vinegar

2 tsp clear honey

1 garlic clove, crushed

1 tsp Dijon mustard

2 tbsp olive oil

4 boneless pork steaks, about 175g/6oz each

100g bag watercress

1 avocado, sliced into chunks

Preparation method

  1. Grate the zest from 1 orange, then segment the flesh (see Here to help, p23). Juice the other orange. Mix the zest with half the juice, vinegar, honey and garlic, then set aside. For the dressing, whisk the remaining juice with the mustard, 1 tbsp oil and seasoning.

  2. Heat the remaining oil in a frying pan, add the pork, then brown on each side, about 5 mins in total. Add the balsamic mixture, season, then bring to the boil. Bubble for 5-6 mins, turning the pork, until tender.

  3. Meanwhile, tip the watercress into a bowl, toss with the avocado, orange segments and dressing, then serve alongside the pork.

Important Stuff! Before You Start

1. You should always consult your doctor before beginning any exercise or weight-loss program, particularly if you have a chronic or recurring condition, if you're pregnant, ill or elderly. This is really important. We want you to have a positive experience and wouldn’t want any medical issues preventing that.

2. You should always warm up for 3 to 5 minutes before taking exercise. Again, this is really important. You will find a warm-up video on this page which will do the trick!

3. You must be at least 18 years of age to use The EQ Plan and agree to abide by our Terms and Conditions.

4. The nature of The EQ Plan means that Claire and Jon can't physically be with you as you work with the videos on the site. As a consequence, we can’t accept liability for any injuries or loss resulting from you using the EQ Plan.
