- In a large non-metallic bowl, whisk the oil, lemon zest and juice, garlic and half the coriander with some seasoning. Add the pork loin steaks, toss well in the marinade and set aside in the fridge while you cook the potatoes, or up to 24 hrs beforehand.
- Boil the potatoes in a large pan of salted water for 10-12 mins until tender. Add the greens to the pan for the last 3 mins and cover with a lid; cook until wilted and the larger leaves are tender. Drain, then tip back into the saucepan. Stir in the dressing and keep warm until the pork is done.
- Meanwhile, heat a griddle pan until hot. Add the pork steaks, leaving any excess marinade in the bowl, and griddle for 6 mins each side until cooked through.
- Serve the pork chops alongside the greens and potatoes, and scatter with the reserved coriander to serve.
