Pork Steak with Beetroot Relish & Pan Roast Potatoes

QUICK & EASY pork steaks with beetroot


Pork steaks are quick and easy to cook and relatively inexpensive. If you cook them too slowly they will become tough and dry, so I recommend a high heat and quickly browning them while leaving the centres still quite tender.  We still need to cook pork through, as it cannot be eaten rare.

  1. Heat one tablespoon of oil in a large frying pan. Add the potatoes and season well. Leave to cook on a medium heat, with a lid on the pan. Shake the pan every couple of minutes to make sure the potatoes are evenly browned. Takes about 15–20 minutes for them to brown.
  2. Meanwhile, grate the beetroot and the apple and mix with the cider vinegar and sugar and season.
  3. Once the potatoes are 10 minutes into cooking, put the paprika on a plate and mix with seasoning. Press the steaks into the mix so they are evenly coated. Heat the other tablespoon of oil in a separate frying pan, add the pork steaks and cook on a medium heat for 2 minutes each side. This is for steaks approximately 1cm thick. Pork needs to be cooked through and not rare.
  4. Serve the steaks with the potatoes and the relish.
