  1. Trim off any visible fat from the pork and season with a little pepper. Beat the egg white with a fork in a shallow dish. Tip the breadcrumbs onto a plate. Coat pork first in egg, then in breadcrumbs. Chill to set the coating until ready to cook.

  2. Tip the tomatoes into a pan with the chilli, garlic and sugar. Bring to the boil, then simmer for about 10 mins until thickened. Brush aubergine slices lightly on both sides with a little of the oil. Grill for 3-4 mins each side until tender and golden.

  3. Meanwhile, heat the remaining oil in a large non-stick frying pan. Add the pork and fry for 3-4 mins each side until golden brown. Serve each pork escalope topped with aubergine slices and a spoonful of tomato sauce, with some green beans on the side, if you like.

It was lovely and I will make it again

This was delicious. I used a little less oil to make my auberigne crisp and also sprinkled with seasoning and oregano to compliment the tomato sauce.

Really yummy and simple! Definitely try this one. I couldn't get my aubergines to crisp up as much as i would've hoped, but think it's user error!

Really lovely! I think I added a little too much oil to the aubergines so they were a bit soggy, but the pork was delicious. Can't comment on the tomato sauce as I made a white sauce instead
