Method

  1. Rub the pork steaks with a little oil and season with pepper and salt to taste. Heat a large frying pan and fry the steaks for 2 mins on both sides until golden. Transfer to a plate. Adding a little more oil to the pan, fry the apples, onions and sage for 5 mins or until the apples have softened.
  2. Pour in the stock and spoon in the mustard, then return the pork to the pan and simmer for 10 mins until the sauce has reduced by about a third and the pork is cooked through. Serve with veg and mashed potatoes.

This was a lovely tasty meal and very easy to prepare. I think increasing the stock to about 250ml would be a good idea as mine did go a little dry, but the boyfriend gave it 5*, so no complaining here!

I used Dijon mustard, tasted horrible! Will not be cooking again

Was a nice dish but I added 2 tsp Worcester sauce and a tsp of caster sugar which improved it for me. May try coating the onions in the caster sugar and roasting them first next time.

Made this for dinner this eve and it was lovely for such a simple recipe - did as others have suggested and increased stock to 200ml which was just as well - think you could even increase it to 300ml... Added a tablespoon of quince jelly to the sauce and it tasted lovely :-) will def make again...

This was ok but nothing special. Wouldn't make it again. But agree with other comments apples should be cut into smaller slices which will make them softer than what they were and increase the stock to 200ml.

I really liked this as an alternative to honey and mustard glaze. I didn't have any fresh sage so put in some sage and onion stuffing mix with extra stock. Lovely thick, tasty sauce. Like others I cut the apple thinly so it was softer which worked well. Definatly would have again.

Fantastic! Fancied doing something different with pork, so glad I found this recipe! Will be making again and again and again!

This is a favourite. Easy and very tasty with readily available ingredients, in fact I have made this dish when living in Argentina and in Spain, for a comforting feeling of home!

Smashing recipe for us. Easy to do and very quick. A great mid week meal that I was going to do with the recommended Crushed olive oil potatoes but my wife prevailed on me to do Mustard Mash, I should probably listen to her more often ..... it was FAB!

Great recipe - will do again.
As specified on an old version of this recipe, I used a good quality apple sauce. I doubled the quantity of stock as my frying pan is rather large. Also I replaced the onions with sweet peppers.
