Coriander-crusted pork with sweet & sour cabbage

I had a couple of pork steaks in the freezer that needed to be used and a quick internet search for inspiration led me to this.

This is nice and simple to throw together for a mid week meal, as everything is roasted together. It makes a nice change from just serving pork with apple sauce.

You have to be careful and make sure the pork doesn’t dry out, as it’s prone to do. Next time, I’d cut my pieces slightly larger to combat that.

I think the colours in this look really great on the plate too.

Recipe from BBC Good Food

  • ¼ a small head red cabbage , thinly sliced
  • 1 red onion , halved and sliced

Pour half over the cabbage and add the rest to the pork shoulder. Mix the cabbage well, sit the meat on top, sprinkle over the coriander seeds and season everything.
