Finely slice the brown onion. Cut the pork loin steak into 1 cm cubes. Peel and crush the garlic. Roughly chop the Asian greens.


Heat 1/3 of the olive oil in a medium frying pan over a medium-high heat. Add the pork loin steak cubes and cook for 2 minutes to brown (the pork will finish cooking in step 3). Remove from the pan and set aside. Add 1/3 of the olive oil and the brown onion and cook for 3 minutes, or until softened. Add the Chinese five spice and cook for 2 minutes, or until fragrant.


Reduce the heat to low and add the brown sugar, water, fish sauce and 1/3 of the salt-reduced soy sauce to the pan with the onion. Season with salt and pepper and stir to dissolve. Simmer for 10 minutes, or until the sauce has reduced and thickened. Add the pork back to the pan and cook for a further 2 minutes to heat through.


Meanwhile, heat a second medium frying pan over a medium-high heat. Add the sesame seeds and toast, stirring, for 3-4 minutes, or until golden. Add the remaining olive oil and garlic. Cook for 1 minute, or until fragrant.
