It's meat and veg but not as you may know it, made more interesting with the addition of herbs, spice and horseradish.

Ingredients

500g baby chat potatoes

2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil

1/4 cup horseradish cream

1 tbsp Dijon mustard

2 tbsp finely chopped chives

2 tbsp finely chopped parsley 

2 tbsp finely chopped tarragon

2 tbsp lemon juice, plus lemon wedges, to serve

4 pork cutlets, at room temperature

1 tsp caraway seeds

1 tsp cumin seeds

Method

1. Preheat the oven to 180C fan-forced (200C conventional). Place the potatoes in a large saucepan filled with cold salted water. Place over high heat, bring to the boil and cook for 8 minutes. Drain and place on a large baking tray. Gently crush the potatoes using the bottom of a glass and toss in 1 tablespoon of the oil. Roast in the oven for 15 minutes, or until golden. 

2. Meanwhile, in a large bowl, combine the horseradish cream, mustard, herbs and lemon juice, season and set aside. 

3. Preheat a large non-stick frying pan over medium heat. Brush the pork cutlets with remaining tablespoon of oil and sprinkle with the spices, salt and pepper. Cook for 5 minutes each side, or until golden. 

4. Serve the pork with potatoes, tartare and lemon wedges.
