Maple Glazed Pork Cutlets

Tis the season to eat large quantities of pork. That's what Christmas is about, right? Even without Christmas around the corner, pork is a classic. Versatile, easy and unmatched during the season. 

Charisse at Gooralie Pig Farm in the Darling Downs has highlighted maple-glazed pork chops as her favourite. She uses a simple recipe which delights in the natural flavour of grass-fed pork. It's no wonder, with delicious tender pork and a sticky-sweet maple-glaze, it's like a party in your mouth.
