13SEP2015 ck

When asked what the secret to his great age was, a more than 100 year old Japanese man replied: "A varied diet". And so I try to cook something different every day for myself and my family. Yesterday we tried this dish, and even my little daughter loved it.

Tip: Marinate lean loin steaks with Chinese sauce then serve with plenty of bok choi cabbage for a healthy supper.

Ingredients (serves 4):
500g pork loin steaks, cut into 2cm-thick slices
4 tbsp hoisin sauce
1 tbsp light soy sauce, plus a dash
350g thin-stemmed broccoli
1 tbsp sunflower oil
2 garlic cloves, thinly sliced
5cm-piece ginger, shredded
1 bunch spring onion, halved lengthways
350g bok choi, halved lengthways
rice or noodles, to serve (optional)

1. Put the pork, hoisin and soy sauce in a bowl and allow to stand for 10 mins. Heat the grill to high, shake off any excess sauce, then lay the pork on a tray. Grill for 5 mins, turning halfway, until cooked through. Remove and leave to rest in a warm place for 5 mins.
2. Meanwhile, put the broccoli in a microwave-safe bowl with 4 tbsp water, cover with cling film, then microwave on High for 3 mins. Heat the oil in a wok, add the garlic and ginger, and stir-fry for 1 min. Add the spring onions and bok choi, then stir-fry for a further 2 mins. Tip in the broccoli with a dash of soy sauce and stir-fry for 1-2 mins more until the veg is warmed through. Serve the pork with the greens, a drizzle of any resting pork juices and rice or noodles, if you like.
