PORK AND SESAME SALAD

INGREDIENTS

  • 2 (about 600g) pork fillets, excess fat trimmed
  • 1 tsp vegetable oil
  • 1 tsp Chinese five spice
  • 1 tbs sesame seeds
  • 130g (2 cups) bean sprouts
  • 50g snow pea sprouts, halved
  • 1 carrot, peeled, cut into matchsticks
  • 4 green shallots, ends trimmed, thinly sliced diagonally
  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh coriander
  • 1 tbs light soy sauce
  • 1 tbs rice wine vinegar
  • 1 tsp finely grated fresh ginger
  • 1 tsp sesame oil

METHOD

Step 1

Preheat oven to 220°C. Place the pork on a plate. Drizzle with oil and sprinkle with Chinese five spice. Season with salt and pepper.

Step 2

Heat a large non-stick frying pan over high heat. Add the sesame seeds and cook, tossing, for 1 minute or until toasted. Transfer to a bowl. Add the pork to the pan and cook for 2 minutes each side or until golden brown. Transfer to a baking tray. Bake in oven for 8 minutes or until just cooked through. Cover with foil and set aside for 5 minutes to rest. Thinly slice across the grain.

Step 3

Meanwhile, combine the bean sprouts, snow pea sprouts, carrot, shallot and coriander in a bowl. Combine the soy sauce, vinegar, ginger and sesame oil in a screw-top jar and shake until combined. Season with salt and pepper. Drizzle dressing over the salad and gently toss until just combined.

Step 4

Divide the salad among serving plates. Top with pork and sprinkle with sesame seeds to serve.
