Pan fried pork with mustard and maple sauce

The photo doesn't really do this meal justice. It could have done with a bit more sauce perhaps, but I loved the flavours of the maple and the mustard combined. I also find that pork tenderloin or fillet is a good cut of meat to cook with as it's generally very tender. I found the recipe on the Good Food website while searching for something to do with a pork fillet. Alternatively serve with some rice. 

Serves 4
2 pork tenderloins, about 300g each
1 tbsp plain flour
2 tbsp olive oil
1 red onion, thinly sliced
200ml vegetable stock
2 tbsp maple syrup
2 tbsp wholegrain mustard
juice 1 lemon
handful parsley sprigs (optional)

Cut the pork into 3cm thick slices, season with salt and pepper, then lightly coat in the flour (the easiest way to do this is to put the flour and seasoning in a large food bag, add the pork and shake well). Heat the oil in a large frying pan, preferably non-stick, then add the pork and quickly fry until it is browned all over. Cook the pork for about 5 mins, then remove to a plate and cover with foil while you make the sauce.
Add the onion to the pan (with a touch more oil if needed), then quickly fry until lightly coloured, add the stock, then bring to the boil. Boil hard for a couple of minutes to reduce the stock a little, stir in the maple syrup, mustard and lemon juice, then bring back to the boil, stirring well.
Return the pork to the pan and gently simmer for a further 3-4 mins until it is cooked through. Sprinkle with parsley, if using.
