Preparation Time: 15-20 minutes and 1-2 hours marinating time
Cooking Time: 20-25 minutes


  • Three tablespoons soy sauce
  • Three tablespoons honey
  • Three tablespoons sherry
  • Four pork chops, trimmed
  • Four teaspoons whole-grain mustard
  • One firm pear, peeled, cored and sliced into 6 mm ( inch) pieces
  • Three-four large potatoes, cut into 6 mm ( inch) pieces
  • Two medium yams or kumara, cut into 6 mm ( inch) pieces
  • Two large red onions, sliced into 6 mm ( inch) pieces
  • Two tablespoons olive oil
  • Two tablespoons chopped fresh herbs such as sage, parsley, thyme or rosemary
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
  • Two tablespoons fresh parsley, chopped (optional)


  1. Combine soy, sherry and honey. Pour over pork chops. Mix and marinate for 1-2 hours, turning once. Drain and reserve the marinade.
  2. Add one teaspoon mustard, spread evenly on top of each pork chop.
  3. Arrange pear slices diagonally across each chop.
  4. Toss yams, potatoes, onions, herbs, oil, salt and pepper in a bowl.
  5. Place the mixture in a 30 cm (12 inch) steamer basket or bamboo steamer, spread evenly with pork chops on top.
  6. It's okay if potato slices overlaps just leave a small gap between potatoes and edge of steamer allowing the steam to circulate.
  7. Pour the pot or wok with water and bring to a rapid simmer. Makes sure the steamer does not touch the water.
  8. Put the steamer over water, cover and steam for 20-25 minutes until chops and potatoes are cooked.
  9. If chops cook through before potatoes, simply remove and keep warm until required.
  10. In a small saucepan, bring marinade to boil.
  11. Serve pork with hot marinade, yams and potatoes and sprinkle with fresh parsley.
