•Baking Sheet with Baking Paper
- Preheat the oven to 220°C/200°C fan/gas mark 7. Boil a large pot of salted water.
- Trim the aubergine and cut into 2cm pieces.
- Pop the aubergine onto a lined baking tray. Drizzle with oil, season with paprika, salt and pepper then toss to coat. Spread out in a single layer.
- When oven is hot, roast on the top shelf until the aubergine is soft and golden, 20-25 mins. Turn halfway through.
TIP: To save time you can boil the water in your kettle.
- Meanwhile, chop the sweet potatoes into 2cm chunks (peeling optional).
- When boiling, add the sweet potatoes to the water and cook until fork tender, 15-20 mins.
- Place a large pan over 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 hot, fry the pork until browned, 2-3 mins on each side.
- Lower heat to medium and cook for an additional 4-6 mins, turning every couple of mins.
- Once cooked, remove from pan, cover with foil and allow to rest.
- When everything is almost ready, return the pan to medium-high heat with 2 tbsp butter (double for 4p).
- Pick the sage leaves from their stalks (keeping them whole). Discard the stalks.
- When the butter is melted, add the sage leaves to the pan and fry until crispy, 2-3 mins, shifting as they cook.
- Once crisp, add the pork back to the pan.
- Carefully use a spoon to baste the pork in the sage butter.
- Once the potatoes are cooked, drain in a colander and return to the pot, off the heat.
- Add a knob of butter and a splash of milk or water.
- Mash until smooth. Season with salt and pepper.
- Plate up your succulent pork steaks.
- Serve sweet potato mash and roasted aubergine alongside.
- Drizzle any remaining sage butter over the pork.
