Ingredients you'll need
  • 2 pork escalopes
  • 2 tsp jerk seasoning
  • A head of broccoli
  • 1 onion
  • 1 chilli
  • 1 lemon
  • A bag of sweet bite peppers
Step by step this way
  • 1.

    Pop the pork escalopes onto a plate. Rub 1 tsp jerk seasoning into each escalope. Put to one side.

  • 2.

    Roughly chop the broccoli. Pop it into a food processor. Pulse a few times till you have fine ‘grains’. No processor? Finely chop the florets and coarsely grate the stalk.

  • 3.

    Peel and finely chop the onion. Halve the chilli. Scrape out the seeds and white bits for less heat. Finely chop the chilli. Finely grate the zest from the lemon.

  • 4.

    Pop the onion in a pan. Add 2 tbsp cold water. Season with salt and pepper. Cook over a very low heat for 5-6 mins till the onion is soft but hasn’t picked up any colour.

  • 5.

    Stir most of the lemon zest and all the chilli into the onion. Cook and stir for 1 min till the pan smells aromatic and spicy.

  • 6.

    Add the broccoli rice to the pan with another 2 tbsp water. Stir and cook over a medium heat for 8-10 mins till the rice is warmed through. Take off the heat. Cover. Put to one side.

  • 7.

    Warm 1 tbsp olive oil in a frying or griddle pan. Add the pork escalopes. Fry over a medium-low heat for 4-5 mins. Turn. Fry for another 3-4 mins till the pork is golden and cooked through. Pop on a plate. Cover with foil to rest.

  • 8.

    Add the sweet bite peppers to the griddle or frying pan. Fry for 2-3 mins. Turn every so often till they are lightly charred. Serve the pork with the broccoli rice and sweet bite peppers, sprinkled with the last of the lemon zest.
