Five spice pork

This quick pork dish tastes great with a side of steamed or roasted vegetables or rice.


2 Pork steaks
2tbsp Tamari
2 Honey
½tsp Five Spice
1tbsp Cornflour


Preheat the oven to 190C

Mix together the honey, tamari and five spice in an oven-proof dish, add the pork steaks and coat them in the sauce. Cook in the oven for 20 minutes

Once the pork has cooked remove from the oven and plate-up the steaks

Mix the cornflour with a little water and add to the sauce left in the bottom of the pan. Heat for a couple of minutes over a hob (ensure you are using a pan suitable for this) stirring. The cornflour should thicken the sauce a little
