INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 Cucumber - £0.50

  • 1 Lime - £0.30

  • White Wine Vinegar - £0.80

  • 1 Bunch of Coriander - £0.70

  • 1 Bag of Radishes - £0.51

  • 3 Carrots - £0.18

  • White Baguette - £0.45

  • Sriracha Mayo - £1.80

  • Ginger - £0.27

  • Honey - £0.99

  • Soy Sauce - £1.00

  • 4 Pork Loin Steaks - £2.50

  • Total Cost - £10.00 - This covers absolutely everything. All we assume you have in your kitchen beforehand is SALT, PEPPER AND OLIVE OIL.

METHOD:

  1. Place pork loins in a bowl. Add 2 tablespoons of soy sauce, 2 tablespoons of honey and a tablespoon of grated ginger. Season with pepper and mix together. Cover the bowl with cling film and leave in the fridge for 10 minutes to marinate.

  2. Salad time. Chops radishes into thin discs. Peel and chop carrots into small slices. Add both to a bowl.

  3. Peel the skin off the cucumber, chop it in half length ways, take a teaspoon and scoop out the seeds. This will make it less watery. Chop it into chunks and add to the salad bowl.

  4. Add a handful of chopped coriander, 2 tablespoons of white wine vinegar and a splash of olive oil. Season with salt and pepper and mix together. Cover bowl and place in the fridge.

  5. Back to the pork. Place pork loins in a hot frying pan. Pour marinade over the top. Cook on a medium – high heat for 4–5 minutes on each side. When the liquid evaporates, just keep adding water. This will keep the loins moist.

  6. When they are cooked through, remove the loins from the heat. Put them in a bowl and let them chill for a couple of minutes. Pour a glass of water into the pan and remove all the sticky bits. Allow the water to reduce so you have some delicious pouring juices. Remove pan from heat.

  7. Place the pork on the board and chop into thin slices.

  8. Assemble time. Slice your baguette along one side and open it up length ways. Drizzle lots of Sriracha mayo on the bottom half.

  9. Layer up your pork. Pour your meat juices all over the pork. Add your salad. On top of the salad, scatter any leftover coriander leaves, and drizzle over some more sriracha mayo. Close the baguette, carve it up with a bread knife and tuck in!
