Method

Before You Begin

Prepare your ingredients & cooking utensils. Use a chopping board and lay all the ingredients out. Take out any "Pantry Items". Preheat your oven to 220°C and bring a large saucepan of salted water to the boil for use in Step 2.

Washing Instruction

Wash your hands, tenderstem broccoli and aubergine well.

Gino's Tip

You don't want to dry roast your aubergine it does take in quite a bit of oil to roast and caramelize. This is a classic soy paste broccoli recipe spruced up a bit in celebration of the Chinese New Year.

Step 1 - Roasted Aubergine and Sesame Pork Steaks

Toss your aubergine half-moons in a large mixing bowl with a good drizzling of olive oil, salt, and pepper. Flatpack onto oven trays with a little extra drizzling of olive oil - See Gino's Tip. Pop into the oven to roast for 15-20 minutes until your aubergine is slightly crispy and cooked through. Use a thin egg lifter to remove them if need be. Give your large mixing bowl a quick wipe for use in Step 2. Season your pork neck steaks with pepper and rub with your sesame seeds. Heat a large frying pan over med-high heat, once your pan is hot but not smoking, add a drizzling of olive oil; and fry your sesame pork neck steaks for 4-5 minutes on each side until your sesame seeds are well browned and your steaks are cooked through. Once you flip your steaks over, reduce the heat to medium and continue cooking.

Step 2 - Soy Paste Greens

Once the water in your large saucepan has come to the boil, cook your tender stem broccoli for 5-7 minutes until just about tender; and remove with a slotted spoon/tongs once done. Cook your edamame for 2-3 minutes and drain through a colander. Meanwhile, whisk your soy paste with a few dashes of water in a large bowl. Once your broccoli, aubergine, and edamame have cooked; mix them into your large bowl containing your soy paste - taste and season only if need be with salt and pepper.

To serve

Divide your soy paste greens amongst your servings and serve with your sesame pork steaks. Enjoy!
