Mexican cooking: Pan fried pork cutlet with spicy maple sauce

By now, you already know that I am from Japan and I had never tasted such a wide variety of cuisine you can dine in over here in the states.

I enjoy food culture very much here and, always I get inspired by some dishes that I tasted somewhere.

Mexican food was one of those new cuisine for me when I first stepped my foot inside the states.I had never had chili, I had never had tortilla, I had never had burritos…..

Now, I love Mexican food a lot, and we like to go to Mexican fast food restaurant “Chipotle” now and then.  Our 2 year old son “Liam” is not a fan of spicy items such as barbacoa (Spicy shredded beef) but he does enjoy carnitas and beans and tortilla etc.

Because of him, I do not make spicy food anymore, but before he was born, I made this pan fried pork with spicy maple sauce served with bean, cilantro rice and vegetables.

 I made it in quick and easy way and,it came out good.

Here,I would like to share the recipe with you.
