Recipe: Marinated Pork Steaks, with Leerdammer Herb Mash

A delicious and very simple dish- Only takes 5 minutes to prepare, a little marinading time, and 25 minutes to cook- Lovely jubbly! I read recently that pork chops is one of the most popular dishes in the UK- something that the majority of us cook every week. I must admit I much prefer these pork loin steaks- no fussy bones to be dealing with, and a good bit of fat to enrich the meat. This is very nice by itself, with a dollop of Dijon mustard on the side.

Marinated Pork Steaks, with Leerdammer Herb Mash (serves 2)

4 pork loin steaks
2 tbsp vegetable oil
1 tsp ginger paste
1 tbsp lemon juice
2 tsp fennel seeds
Salt and pepper

1kg potatoes, peeled and diced
1 tbsp butter
115g grated Leerdammer
15g fresh parsley, finely chopped
Splash of milk
Salt and pepper to taste

1) Mix together the oil, ginger, lemon, fennel seeds, salt and pepper. Rub this mix into the pork loin steaks and marinate for at least 15 minutes. Preheat a grill on a high heat.
2) Meanwhile, bring a large pan of salted water to the boil, and boil the potatoes until soft enough to mash (about 25 minutes).
3) Meanwhile, put the pork loin steaks (with any leftover marinade poured on top) under a hot grill for 7 minutes each side. Drain the potatoes, and mash with the butter, Leerdammer, parsley, and a little milk.
4) Season the mash to taste and serve with the grilled pork steaks.
