Bring a large saucepan of salted water to the boil. Peel the potato and chop into 2 cm chunks. Trim the ends of the green beans. Slice the zucchini into 0.5 cm strips (about the same size as the beans). Pick the thyme leaves until you have 1 tsp for 2 people / 2 tsp for 4 people. Zest the orange until you have 1 tsp for 2 people / 2 tsp for 4 people. Juice the orange until you have 1/4 cup for 2 people / 1/2 cup for 4 people. Peel and crush the garlic (see ingredients list).

Cook the potato & veggies

Add the potato to the saucepan of boiling water and place a colander or steamer basket on top. TIP: The colander should not touch the water. Add the green beans and zucchini to the colander, cover with a lid and steam for 10-15 minutes, or until the veggies are soft but still retain some bite. Transfer the green beans and zucchini to a medium bowl and season with a pinch of salt and pepper. Drizzle with olive oil and cover to keep warm. Drain the potato and cover to keep warm.

Cook the pork

While the veggies are cooking, heat a drizzle of olive oil in a large frying pan over a medium-high heat. Once hot, add the pork loin steaks and cook for 2-4 minutes on each side (depending on the thickness), or until cooked through. Transfer to a plate and cover with foil to rest for 5 minutes.TIP: It’s okay for pork to be served slightly blushing pink in the centre.

Make the sauce

Return the same frying pan to a medium heat and add another drizzle of olive oil (if needed). Add the thyme and orange zest and cook for 1 minute, or until fragrant. Add the just from the orange and the brown sugar and cook for 1 minute, or until reduced slightly. Return the pork loin steaks (and any resting juices) to the pan and heat for 30 seconds or until warmed through.

Make the garlic mash

Return the same large saucepan to a medium heat and add the butter and garlic. Cook for 2 minutes, or until fragrant. Add the potato and toss in the garlic butter. Add the milk, salt (see ingredients list) and a pinch of pepper and mash, using a potato masher or fork, until smooth.

Serve up

Divide the veggies, garlic mash and orange-thyme pork loin steaks between plates. Spoon over the remaining sauce from the pan.
