4 x Pork sirloin steaks (about 500-600g)
1.2kg brushed potatoes, scrubbed and skin on
Broccolini bunch or broccoli head
2-3 sprigs of Sage leaves (~5-10g pack)
1 tablespoon butter
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
Salt and pepper to taste
40g tasty cheese, shredded
Fill a medium pot with water and bring to the boil.
Whilst it’s waiting to boil, chop potatoes into 2cm x 2 cm cubes roughly. Place in salted water and boil for about 10-12 minutes (until you insert a skewer or sharp knife and it feels soft).
While potatoes are boiling, steam or microwave broccolini/broccoli for about 1.5-2 minutes. Set aside.
Lay pork steaks out and season with salt and pepper.
Heat a medium pan to medium-high heat, and the sage leaves for 30 seconds to soften. Remove and set aside.
Add a dash of olive oil to the hot pan and place steaks on the pan. Cook for 6 minutes. Turn over and cook for another 2 minutes and place half the sage leaves over the steaks. Rest on a plate for 2 minutes and you’ll have perfect pork steak.
When potatoes are ready, drain and then return to the pot. Mash potatoes until soft and add butter and extra virgin olive oi. Mix well. Mash again and add cheese, remaining sage leaves, salt and pepper to taste. Stir well. Taste and add more of anything if you need.
Serve pork with mash potato and greens.
