    Heat oil & butter in a separate pan, until butter melts and begins to bubble.

    Add pear wedges with a pinch of salt and pepper. Sauté until caramelized.

    Remove the pear from the pan and allow to cool slightly before tossing with fresh rocket and toasted pine nuts.

    Slice the pork steak, serve with pear and rocket salad. Finish with a quick drizzle of olive oil.
