  1. Using a meat mallet, pound the pork between 2 sheets of non-stick baking paper into rounds. Place the eggs, salt and pepper in a bowl and whisk with a fork to combine. Place the flour in a separate bowl and place the rice flakes on a large plate. Dust the pork, one piece at a time, in the flour, dip in the egg and press in the rice flakes to coat.

  3. Heat 1 tablespoon of the oil in a large non-stick frying pan over medium heat. Cook the pork, in 3 batches, adding 1 tablespoon of oil with each batch, for 3 minutes each side or until cooked through and crispy. Set aside and keep warm.
  4. Cook the soba noodles in a large saucepan of boiling water for 3–4 minutes or until al dente. Remove from the heat. Add the spinach and stir until wilted. Drain and return the spinach and noodles to the pan, then add the dressing and toss to coat.
