Grilled Pork with Avocado and Bean Salsa

Pork is a great lean protein if you choose the right cut. This recipe uses a loin steak which is not only tasty but also very healthy if any excess fat is trimmed. Don’t overcook it though as it will dry out but if it’s cooked well it will be succulent and this fresh and zesty salsa tops it off- yum, my mouth is watering just thinking about it! Enjoy!

Preparation time: 10 minutes
Cooking time: 10 minutes
4 x 125g pork loin steaks
400g borlotti beans, rinsed and drained
1 avocado, diced
1 tomato, diced
juice of 1 lime
1 tablespoon coriander leaves

2. While pork is resting, mix together avocado, tomato, beans, lime juice and coriander.
