You’ll also find a treasure trove of vitamins and minerals. There’s vitamin B1, also known as thiamine, that helps your body convert energy from nutrients, B3 to keep your metabolism running smoothly, B6 for red blood cell formation and B12, which can enhance brain health.

The minerals found in pork – iron, phosphorus, selenium and zinc – all have a role in keeping your body functioning at its best.

And the vivid colours make this dish even more appealing, especially if you have young and fussy eaters who need an incentive to tuck in!

  • For: 4



  1. Place the pork steaks in plastic wrap and beat gently with a rolling pin to about 7 mm in thickness.
  2. Put the flour, egg and panko crumbs in three separate bowls. Dip each steak in the flour and shake off the excess. Then place in the egg and finally coat with the crumbs, pressing them down until they stick. Put on a plate and refrigerate for around 10 minutes.
  3. While you’re waiting, whisk the lemon juice, mayonnaise and sesame oil in a jug. Then mix the carrot, red cabbage and spring onion in a separate bowl.
  4. Heat the vegetable oil in a large frying pan over medium heat. Add two of the steaks and cook for 3 minutes on each side or until they are golden brown. Place on a plate lined with kitchen towel and cover with foil to retain heat. Repeat the process with the remaining two steaks.
  5. Serve the steaks on a plate with the slaw and mayonnaise mixture.


Top tip: You can add salad leaves and diced avocado to your slaw for extra vitamins and minerals.
