Ingredients

  • 4 pork loin steak
  • 3 slices thick white bread, torn into pieces
  • zest 1 unwaxed lemon
  • 50g grated Parmesan
  • 50g pine nut
  • 2 rosemary sprigs, leaves picked
  • 3 tbsp plain flour
  • 2 egg, beaten
  • olive oil, for shallow-frying
  • 4 lemon wedges, to serve

Method

  1. Trim the fat from the steaks, then place, one at a time, between 2 pieces of baking parchment and bash with a rolling pin or meat mallet until about 5mm thick. Set aside.

  2. Put the bread, lemon zest, Parmesan, pine nuts and rosemary leaves in the bowl of a food processor and blitz to a fine crumb. Transfer to a shallow bowl.

  3. Spread the flour onto a plate and put the egg in a shallow bowl. Season the pork, then dust in flour. Dip each steak into the egg, then press into the crumbs, coating evenly. Heat the oil in a large frying pan and cook the pork for 2-3 mins each side until golden and crunchy. Serve immediately with lemon wedges.
