Pot with Lid


Get Prepped
  • Halve, peel and thinly slice the onion.
  • Peel and grate the garlic (or use a garlic press).
  • Halve the bell pepper and discard the core and seeds. Slice into thin strips.
Make the Couscous
  • Boil 200ml water (500ml for 4p) in a large pot.
  • When boiling, remove from heat. Stir in couscous and half the chicken stock powder.
  • Cover and leave aside for 8-10 mins or until ready to serve.
  • Meanwhile, pick the mint leaves and roughly chop.
  • Once the couscous is ready, fluff it up with a fork. Stir in a drizzle of oil along with half the mint leaves. Season with salt and pepper.

TIP: If you're in a hurry you can boil the water in your kettle.

Toast the Almonds
  • Meanwhile, place a large pan over medium heat (no oil).
  • Once hot, add the almonds and dry-fry, shifting regularly, until lightly toasted, 1-2 mins.
  • Transfer to a bowl and set aside.

TIP: Watch them like a hawk as they can burn easily.

Cook the Pork
  • Return the pan to medium-high heat with a drizzle of oil.
  • Season the pork with salt and pepper. IMPORTANT: Wash hands and equipment after handling raw meat. Pork is cooked when no longer pink in the middle.
  • Once the oil is hot, add the pork steaks. Fry until browned, 2-3 mins on each side.
  • Reduce the heat to medium and fry for an additional 4-6 mins, turning every 1-2 mins.
  • Once cooked, transfer to a plate, cover and allow to rest.
Simmer the Sauce
  • Return the pan to medium-high heat with a drizzle of oil.
  • Fry the onion and pepper until softened, 4-5 mins.
  • Add the garlic, paprika and cumin and cook for 1 min.
  • Add 75ml water (double for 4p), passata and remaining chicken stock powder.
  • Bring to the boil, lower heat to medium and simmer until the sauce has reduced by half, 5-7 mins. Stir occasionally. Season to taste with salt, pepper and sugar.

TIP: Add a splash of water if it's too dry.

Plate and Serve
  • Serve your pork steaks on a bed of fragrant couscous.
  • Top with the sauce with a scattering of almonds.
  • Finish with a sprinkling of the remaining mint.
