Pan-fried Pork Steaks with Lemon and Chilli

Easy and quick to make - pan-fried pork loin steaks.  There's no need to fuss marinading the pork for any length of time first, just get on and cook it.
Now this can only be a good thing in my opinion, since it means you're nearer to eating!

Pan-fried Pork Steaks with Lemon and Chilli

So simple there isn't even a real recipe, but if you really must have one then please continue reading!

Top Tip!
Be sure to add the pork to the marinade mixture just before you intend to  cook.  Why?  Because the lemon will start to 'chemically cook' the pork and it will be tough.   

To serve 2 you will need:
4 nice thin pork loin steaks - with a little fat around the edge
a couple of glugs of olive oil
1 red chilli - deseeded and finely chopped
1 small clove of garlic - finely chopped
a very small handful of freshly chopped flat leaved parsley
the zest of half a lemon and the juice of the whole lemon
the tiniest pinch of sea salt and a good pinch of ground black pepper 

How to do it:
Mix the ingredients together and tip onto a plate.  Coat the pork steaks well and heat up a large frying pan big enough to take all four steaks - there's no need to add oil as it's on the pork already.
When the pan is nice and hot add the pork and cook for just 2 or 3 minutes each side - exact time depends on their thickness.
Remove from the pan and serve with whatever takes your fancy at the time.
