I use shoulder steaks as I think they have more flavour than just loin steaks and they are very lean if there is any fat I just trim it off before cooking.
I am pretty thrilled with this post as well as it also has my first carrots and potatoes from the garden this year.
Pork in cider and sage
8 lean pork steaks (to serve 4 )
1 large onion (sliced)
250ml dry cider
250ml vegetable stock
2 tsp dried sage
1 tbsp cornflour mixed with 1 tbsp water
salt and pepper
Place the onions and pork steaks in an ovenproof and hob proof dish (can use a roasting tin instead if you like).
Sprinkle with the sage and season with salt and pepper, Pour over the stock and cider and place in a moderate oven Gas 5 / 375/190 for about an hour to gently cook the steaks.
Remove the steaks and onions and set to one side, Put the pan onto the hob of the oven over a medium heat and then whisk in the cornflour and water mix and keep whisking as it comes to the boil.
Simmer the sauce for a few minutes and keep whisking and then simmer and whisk for a few more minutes to ensure sauce is thick, then add the pork and onions back into the sauce.
I served with potatoes (from my garden : ) roasted in my actifry, Steamed carrots (from my garden!) and broccoli and peas.
