For this dish, Match pork gets dressed up with a sweet and spicy glaze.
- 1/4 cup agave nectar
- 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
- 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
- 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1/8 teaspoon ground cloves
- Cooking spray
- 1 pound Match pork, thawed
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
2. Heat a large skillet coated with cooking spray over medium-high heat. Divide the pork into 4 equal portions, shaping each into a 1/2-inch thick patty. Sprinkle evenly with the salt and black pepper. Add the pork to the pan and cook for 2 minutes on each side.
3. Reduce heat to medium-low and add the agave mixture. Continue to cook for about 10 minutes, turning the pork over halfway through.
Serve with mashed red potatoes sprinkled with fresh chives (leave the skin on for a beautifully rustic presentation) to round out the meal.

One of the best Match pork recipes I've made to date. The glaze had a wonderful sweetness without being cloyingly so, and the touch of ginger was subtly spicy. Much like the honey-mustard sauce I used to dip nuggets into in pre-vegan days; the sweetness accentuated the savory Match underneath. I highly recommend those mashed potatoes on the side - perfect for soaking up the last bits of glaze from the plate.
