These pork loin steaks are juicy, succulent and cooked in a sticky-sweet glaze. The richness of the hoisin is balanced with quick-pickle cucumber and potato wedges. It's so simple, yet so delicious.

Cooking Instructions
Instructions for 2 people (double for 4)
1 Sticky Hoisin Pork & Cucumber Pickle

Preheat the oven to 220°C/ 200°C (fan)/ 425°F/ Gas 7

Cut the potatoes (skins on) into wedges

Add the wedges to a tray, drizzle with olive oil, season generously with salt and pepper and put them in the oven for 30 min or until golden

2 Sticky Hoisin Pork & Cucumber Pickle

While the wedges are cooking, halve the cucumber lengthways, scrape the seeds out with a teaspoon and discard, then finely slice the flesh

Peel (scrape the skin off with a teaspoon) and finely chop (or grate) the ginger

Cut the red chilli[es] in half lengthways, deseed (scrape the seeds out with a teaspoon) and chop finely

3 Sticky Hoisin Pork & Cucumber Pickle

Add the chopped ginger, soy saucehoneyhoisin sauce and half [all] the five-spice to a large bowl

Add 1 tbsp [2 tbsp] water and give everything a good mix up - this is your marinade

Add the pork loin steaks to the marinade and set aside

4 Sticky Hoisin Pork & Cucumber Pickle

Meanwhile, combine the sliced cucumber, chopped chilli (can't handle the heat? Go easy!) and rice vinegar in a bowl

Mix well and set aside – this is your cucumber pickle

Heat a large, wide-based pan (preferably non-stick) over a hight heat

5 Sticky Hoisin Pork & Cucumber Pickle

Once hot, shake off the excess marinade from the pork steaks (you'll use the rest later) and add them to the pan

Cook the steaks for 4-5 min on each side or until browned and cooked through

Once done, transfer the cooked pork steaks to a clean chopping board or plate, cover with a tea towel and leave to rest for 5 min

6 Sticky Hoisin Pork & Cucumber Pickle

Add the remaining marinade back to the pan

Cook for 3-5 min or until it's approaching a dark, thick and sticky consistency – this is your glaze

Tip: The glaze will continue to thicken when it’s off the heat

7 Sticky Hoisin Pork & Cucumber Pickle

Slice the rested pork steaks finely

Add any resting juices to the glaze
