Ingredients

  • 3 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 2 red onions, cut into wedges
  • 2 tbsp medium curry powder
  • 400ml tin light coconut milk
  • 350ml chicken stock
  • 2 slices sourdough bread, whizzed to rough crumbs
  • Finely grated zest and juice 2 limes
  • 4 outdoor-reared pork loin steaks
  • 4 tbsp soy sauce
  • 3 tbsp sesame oil
  • 4 pak choi, quartered
  • Steamed rice to serve

Method

  1. Heat 1 tbsp of the oil in a medium pan and fry the onions until softening (about 6-8 minutes). Add the curry powder and cook for 2 minutes, then stir in the coconut milk and stock. Leave on a low heat to simmer while you make the crispy lime crumbs and brown the pork.
  2. Heat the remaining oil in a frying pan, then add the breadcrumbs and lime zest and fry until golden brown and crispy. Remove from the pan and set aside. In the same pan, fry the pork for 4-5 minutes on each side until golden brown and cooked through. Remove from the pan, cover and keep warm.
  3. Stir the soy sauce, sesame oil and lime juice into the coconut curry sauce mixture. Add the pak choi, then simmer for 5 minutes more until tender.
  4. Slice the pork steaks thickly. Spoon steamed rice into 4 bowls and top with the curry sauce, pak choi and sliced pork. Scatter with a few crispy lime crumbs and serve.
