Crispy Italian pork with salsa and bean mash HERO

Boil the potato for 12-15 minutes until soft. Add the beans for the last minute, then drain and return to pan. Mash together with the mascarpone and 2 tbsp of boiling water and keep warm.

Whisk the vinegar with 1 tablespoon of the olive oil and season. Toss through the red pepper and basil. Set aside.

Lightly pound the steaks until they are about ½cm (¼in) thick. Rub 1 tbsp of oil over the steaks. Mix the breadcrumbs and cheese on a plate and press the steaks into this until coated.

Heat a frying pan then add the remaining oil. Fry the steaks for 5-7 minutes each side, until cooked through. Serve with the mash and top with a spoonful of salsa.
