Not included in your delivery
Preheat your oven to 240°C/220°C fan/gas mark 9. Remove butter from fridge to soften. Pick rosemary leaves from stalks and roughly chop (discard the stalks). Chop the potatoes lengthways into 1cm slices, then chop into 1cm wide chips (no need to peel). Pop chips onto a large baking tray. Drizzle with oil, season with salt, pepper and half the rosemary. Toss to coat. Spread out in one layer. TIP: Use two baking trays if necessary.
Peel the garlic cloves. Pop half into a small piece of foil with a drizzle of oil and scrunch to enclose it. When the oven is hot, roast the potatoes on the top shelf until golden, 25-30 mins. Turn the potatoes halfway through. Add the garlic parcel to the tray for 10-12 mins of cooking time then remove. Meanwhile, grate the remaining garlic (or use a garlic press).
Trim the green beans. Heat a drizzle of oil in a pan on medium-high heat. Once the pan is hot, add the green beans and fry until starting to char, 2-3 mins. Stir in the grated garlic, turn the heat down to medium and cook for 1 min. Then add a splash of water and immediately cover with a lid or some foil. Allow to cook until the beans are tender, 4-5 mins. Then transfer to a bowl and cover to keep warm.
Once the garlic has roasted, remove from the foil and squeeze out the flesh. Mash with a fork and pop into a small bowl with the butter and remaining rosemary. Season with salt and pepper, then mix to combine and set aside.
Pop the (now empty) pan back on high heat with a drizzle of oil. Season the pork with salt and pepper. IMPORTANT: Wash your hands and equipment after handling raw meat.
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 couple of mins. Once cooked, remove to a plate and cover with another plate or foil to rest. IMPORTANT: The pork is cooked when no longer pink in the middle.Spoon over the butter, cover with foil and allow to rest for a couple of mins. IMPORTANT: Wash your hands after handling raw meat. The steak is safe to eat when the outside is browned.
Thinly slice the pork, then plate up with the potatoes and garlicky green beans alongside. Drizzle any buttery juices over the steak. Enjoy!
