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.

Excellent receipe and will definitely make this again. Cut the apples into smaller pieces and used additional stock liquid. Also served with mash and tenderstem broccoli.

I made this last night for my fiance and we absolutely loved it! I was surprised as I'm not a big meat eater and he is so I'm trying to become more adventurous with my choice in meat. I'd tried pork before and wasn't a fan but cooked this way I would happily make again and again!

Beautiful flavours, really nice and easy dish. I think you need at least 200ml of liquid but I like lots of sauce so next time I make I'll use 300ml part stock part wine.

I also thought the apples had a bit too much bite so will cut them smaller than eighths next time.

Served with mash and fine beans. Such an easy dinner and very tasty.

Just had this for Sunday dinner and it was rated very highly by everyone. For some reason, I forgot the apples were supposed to be cut into eight and just cut them into four - which left them with a bit of bite in them, which could definitely go next time. I shall have to remember to cut into eight! Definitely a do-again.

Just cooked this for sunday lunch, turned out lovely at different take on cooking pork as it can be quite bland. I used wholegrain mustard and served it will french beans and roast potatoes. I shall definately cook this again, although next time I shall add a splash of white wine..

Delicious. Agree with the comments about adding additional liquid. Great with mash

I have made this twice - excellent both times. The first time I added mushrooms, the second time I added cubes of marrow - both good additions. I also used more stock than suggested.

The whole family love this- kids as well! I also use a little extra liquid.

This was superb, although I added some mushrooms as well, and I found that 100ml of liquid was not enough. I still only used 1 chicken stock cube though, and it thickened quite nicely and tasted fantastic as a sauce. Hubby said "I don't want my pork steaks cooked any other way again ever".. that's how good it was!
