Cooking Time (Includes Preparation Time): 40 Minutes


  • 4 Pork Steaks

  • 300g Breadcrumbs

  • 400g Plain Flour

  • 2 Eggs

  • Basmati Rice

  • 1 Red Cabbage

  • 1 White Cabbage

  • 130g Ketchup

  • 4.5 Tbsps of Rice Wine Vinegar

  • 2.5 Tbsps Honey

  • 2 Tbsps of Soy Sauce

  • 3 Tbsps Worcestershire Sauce

  • 1 Clove of Garlic

  • Knob of Ginger

  • Olive oil

  • Salt

  • Pepper


  1. Sauce first. Add some oil into a pan. Add a grated clove of garlic, and a large knob of grated ginger. Fry for 30 seconds, and before they start to brown, add the Ketchup, Worcestershire sauce, soy sauce, honey and rice wine vinegar. Add 150ml water, mix everything together, and then bubble the sauce down on a high heat until a nice thick pouring consistency.

  2. Slaw time. Finely slice 150g of both red and white cabbage. Add to a bowl, with 2 tablespoons of rice wine vinegar, a tablespoon of olive oil, a pinch of salt and a grinding of pepper. Mix everything together.

  3. Rice time. Get your rice on, follow pack instructions.

  4. Pork time. Get three bowls out. Add flour to one, 2 eggs to the next (break them in, season with salt and pepper and whisk them up) and your breadcrumbs to the third. Dip your pork in the flour, then the eggs, and then the breadcrumbs, making sure it is properly coated.

  5. Get a pan on the heat. Add enough vegetable oil so it covers the bottom. Once hot, add your pork steaks. Flip after 3-4 minutes once the bottom side is golden brown. Then keep flipping until the breadcrumbs are a deep golden brown, and the pork is cooked through (10-12 minutes).

  6. Take the pork out of the pan and allow to rest on a board for 2-3 minutes. Then slice it up. Serve your pork on a plate, with your steaming rice on one side, and a big wodge of slaw on the other. Pour your sauce over the pork and the rice and tuck in!
