If you like the flavour of curry, but aren’t a fan of heat then this Japanese-style pork is for (kats)YOU! Our lightly pickled salad is just the ticket to counterbalance the textures and richness. If you’re keen on presentation, spoon your rice into a small bowl, press it in firmly, and then turn out to form a perfect circular shape.

Cooking Instructions
Instructions for 2 people (double for 4)

Add the rice, 375ml (750ml) of water and salt (optional) to a pot with a lid on a high heat and bring to the boil

Once boiling, reduce the heat and simmer gently with the lid on for 15-20 min or until all the water is absorbed

Check occasionally and once done, set aside until ready to serve


Meanwhile, boil a kettle (used in step 4)

Peel, top and tail the carrot(s)

Continue to peel lengths of carrot until you end up with a pile of carrot 'ribbons'

Once you've peeled as far as you can, grate the inner stem


Peel and finely dice the onion(s)

Heat 2-3 tbsp of vegetable oil in a large pan

Add the grated carrot, onion, curry powder and a pinch of salt

Cook on a medium heat for 5 min or until starting to colour


Combine the stock cube and 300ml (500ml) of boiled water

Add 1 tbsp (1 1/2 tbsp) of flour to the carrot mixture, cook for 1 min

Stir in the stock and 1/2 tsp (1 tsp) sugar, mixing well to combine

Continue to cook for 5-10 min or until thickened on a low heat


Slice the spring onions finely

Add the carrot ribbons, spring onion and coriander to a bowl

Add the rice vinegar - mix well

Set aside for step 8


Crack the egg(s) into a shallow bowl and beat well with a fork

On another plate, add 3 tbsp (6 tbsp) of plain flour and season generously with salt and pepper

On a third plate, add the breadcrumbs


Slice each pork loin steak in half lengthways, to form 4 (8) escalopes

Tip: Lay your hand flat over the steaks and carefully saw through with a sharp knife

Coat one escalope with the seasoned flour, tapping off any excess

Dip it in the egg and coat well, then roll it in the breadcrumbs and coat evenly

Repeat with the remaining steaks
