Even though I eat mostly vegetarian dishes, I love me a good pork steak. Over the weekend, we picked up a couple of kilos of pork steak from Costco. We picked up a lot of fruit as well, so tonight, the Mrs decided to cook pork steak with apples.
The nice thing about my wife’s pork steak with apples recipe is it doesn’t dry out. The apples and onions and the flavoured stock all come together to provide plenty of moisture. Done right, there’s a nice sauce that you can drizzle over rice.
You can also choose to make this with bone-in pork chops, but my kids frown on bone-in meat–I’M SORRY, OKAY, I FAILED!–and so we settled on pork steak. It still came out deliciously.
Pork Steak with Apples Ingredients

- Three tablespoons rosemary
- Two pink lady apples, thinly sliced
- Half a white onion, julienned
- Season both sides of pork steak with kosher salt and black pepper.
- Fry pork steak in a large pan over medium heat for three minutes per side or until lightly seared. Set aside.
