  • 2 pork chops (about 140g/5oz each)
  • 2 tsp sesame oil
  • 200g green beans, trimmed
  • 2 tsp black or white sesame seeds, or a mix of both, plus extra to serve
  • 2 tbsp miso paste
  • 1 tbsp mirin
  • 2 tbsp yuzu juice (or 1 tbsp each lime and grapefruit juice)
  • 1 tbsp golden caster sugar
  • 1 tsp English mustard


  1. Mix the sauce ingredients together in a small bowl. Rub a spoonful of the sauce over each pork chop. Reserve the rest to serve alongside.

  2. Heat a griddle pan until hot and bring a pan of water to the boil. Drizzle the chops with 1 tsp of the sesame oil. Cook in the griddle pan for 5 mins each side, or until cooked through.

  3. Meanwhile, cook the beans in the boiling water for 2 mins, then drain. Heat the remaining oil in the same pan, add the beans and sesame seeds, and cook for 2 mins. Serve the chops with the beans, the remaining miso sauce and an extra sprinkling of sesame seeds.
