Pork works very well with both sweet and savoury flavours. Here, the pork steaks are served with an orange-almond couscous studded with sultanas.

Pork is the number-one dietary source of thiamin; it offers impressive amounts of other B vitamins as well. And pork is now far leaner than it used to be.
