450g pork fillet
2 tbsp brown rice miso paste
2 tbsp clear honey
1 tbsp toasted sesame oil
1 tbsp Japanese rice vinegar
2 tsp soy sauce
1 clove garlic, crushed
2 tsp grated fresh ginger
1 tbsp sesame seeds, toasted
3 salad onions, trimmed and thinly sliced
Sticky rice and steamed greens, to serve


1. Trim the pork fillet of any excess fat or sinew and if it is one long fillet cut it into 2 lengths of similar size. Combine the miso, honey, sesame oil, rice vinegar, soy sauce, garlic and ginger in a bowl and mix until smooth. Add the pork fillet and mix well to coat. Cover and marinade in the fridge for 1 hour.

2. Preheat the oven to 200°C, gas mark 6. Place the pork in a small roasting tin with all of the marinade and roast for 30 minutes, basting every 10 minutes, until the pork is cooked through, golden brown and caramelised.

3. Leave to rest for 3 minutes and then cut into slices, scatter with toasted sesame seeds and sliced salad onions and serve with sticky rice and steamed greens.
