Ingredients

  • 1 unit butternut squash peeled, diced
  • 1 pinch red chilli flakes
  • 1 unit red onion peeled, wedged
  • 2 clove garlic
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • 4 units pork steak
  • 1/4 cup pumpkin seeds
  • 1 block feta cheese cubed
  • 1 bag Lambs Lettuce and Bulls Blood Mix
  • 3 tbsp extra virgin olive oil

Instructions

  1. Preheat your oven to 220°C. Slice the butternut squash in half lengthways and scoop out the seeds. Slice it into about 1cm thick pieces, then chop it into 1cm cubes. Halve, peel and chop the red onion into wedges - about four wedges per half.

  2. Spread the butternut squash and onion out on a baking tray. Drizzle over half the honey, a good glug of oil, a pinch of chilli flakes (careful, they're hot!), salt and pepper. Toss to ensure an even coating. Place on the top shelf of your oven and roast until soft and starting to caramelise, about 20-25 mins.

  3. Meanwhile, peel and grate the garlic (or use a garlic press). In a mixing bowl, combine the garlic, oil (see ingredients for amount) and remaining honey. Season with a good pinch of salt and pepper. Add the pork steaks to the bowl and use your hands to coat the pork well in the marinade.

  4. Heat a frying pan on medium heat (no oil). When hot, add the pork steaks and fry until golden brown, 1-2 mins on each side TIP: Leave the excess marinade in the bowl, we'll use it later! We will finish the pork steaks in the oven, so don't fry them for too long or they may overcook! When they are done, simply remove the pan from the heat and wait till the veg is ready for them.

  5. When the veg has been cooking for 20-25 min and is crispy, turn it and lay the pork steaks on top, ensuring you tip any marinade leftover from the bowl onto the tray. Scatter over the pumpkin seeds. Return the tray to the oven to cook for a further 8-10 mins. TIP: The pork is cooked when no longer pink in the middle. When the pork is done, remove it to a plate and cover it loosely with foil to rest while you finish up.

  6. Serve the roasted veggies in bowls. Crumble over half the feta cheese. Slice the pork into 1cm strips and lay on top of the veg before crumbling over the remaining feta. Pop a handful of salad on the side and pour over any juices from the roasting tray - the flavor is delicious. Enjoy!
