Harrissa Pork and Couscous

It was over the weekend that I discovered a great app by way of the Donna Hay Magazine App.   I have been a big fan of Donna since I lived in Australia her recipes are so simple, beautifully shot , and are so easy to make they are easy on the stress too!

The Donna Hay Magazine is truly a work of art, and my time is now spent flicking happily through the app on the iPad, drooling over new recipes.    This next recipe is an oh so simple Donna Hay classic,  its so fresh and simple, its a perfect midweek meal to russle up after work.

  • 4 x 235g pork cutlets, (used 4 pork chops here and it work just as well)
