Cook's notes

Oven temperatures are for conventional; if using fan-forced (convection), reduce the temperature by 20˚C. | We use Australian tablespoons and cups: 1 teaspoon equals 5 ml; 1 tablespoon equals 20 ml; 1 cup equals 250 ml. | All herbs are fresh (unless specified) and cups are lightly packed. | All vegetables are medium size and peeled, unless specified. | All eggs are 55-60 g, unless specified.


1. One at a time, place each pork steak on a board, cover with plastic wrap and pat out using a rolling pin until almost doubled in size. Dust with seasoned flour, dip in beaten egg and coat with breadcrumbs. Refrigerate for 5 minutes.

2. Meanwhile, toss together wombok, carrot and lemon juice. Set aside.

3. Heat 5mm of oil in a wide frying pan on medium. Cook pork steaks in batches for 3 minutes each side, until golden all over and just cooked.

4. Cut each pork steak into slices and arrange on serving plates. Serve with wombok salad, mustard, mayonnaise and a bowl of steamed rice. Offer a small bowl of soy sauce for dipping.
