For the garnishes:

  • Couscous
  • Broccoli:
    • Clean the whole broccoli with cold water.
    • Cut it separating all the bouquets from the trunk, as the cooking time that they need isn’t the same.

  • Tomatoes:
    • Cut the cherry tomatoes in half.
    • Stir fry them and add a pinch of salt.

  • Pour the sauce over the pork.
