  1. Boil the potatoes and swede for 15 mins, adding the cabbage for the final 3 mins. Once tender, remove the cabbage with tongs and set aside. Drain the potatoes and swede, roughly mash with the milk, butter and seasoning, then stir through the cabbage.

  2. While the vegetables are boiling, rub the pork steaks with the oil. Heat a griddle pan, then cook the steaks for 3-4 mins on each side, depending on their thickness. Serve alongside the colcannon, drizzled with any pan juices.

I made this swede colcannon to have with the pork with olives & balsamic vinegar (April 2007), really like this way of cooking swede. I think it does need the bit of potato to balance out the sweetness.
