Pan-fried Pork Steak Feast - Entertaining Made Easy

An easy dinner which not only looks good but is also quite simple to make.  Lovely thick and juicy pork steaks smeared with good quality olive oil, seasoned with sea salt and black pepper and pan-fried. 
Turn this meal into a feast by adding a couple of side dishes as shown - one of which includes potatoes but if you still think you need to add more, then of course fresh crusty buttered bread is always a good thing.

It really is worth buying good quality meat and I love the convenience of ordering from the online butchers, Westin Gourmet

Entertaining made easy:
Since the vegetable dish can be prepared in advance (just don't add the feta until your ready to pop into the oven) this makes entertaining family and friends easy.  The corn can be prepared too to the stage where that has to go into the oven.  All that's left to do then is pan-fry your pork steaks at the last minute.

To turn this simple meal  into a feast:
Before you start cooking the pork, heat a glug of oil on a large frying pan and add sliced bell peppers and sliced red onions.  Season with a little sea salt and black pepper and cook until softened but not coloured. 
Add a few cooked new potatoes (I happened to have some leftover in the fridge so wanted to use them up) and cook for a few minutes more.  Now get a disposable foil tray and tip the lot in and spread evenly.  Add a few halved cherry tomatoes and top with crumbled feta cheese.  We are big fans of chilli so I added a sprinkle of chilli flakes then drizzle with a little olive oil and season to taste.
Top Tip; Remember sea salt isn't as salty as table or cooking salt so if you didn't use sea salt you might not want to add anymore.

Cover with kitchen foil and pop into a preheated oven at 200C/400F of Gas 6 for about 15-20 minutes.
Remove the foil for the last five minutes cooking time.

For the corn cobbettes:
Cook the corn on the cob by boiling in salted water for about 10 minutes until pretty much done and then drain well.  Wrap loosely in a kitchen foil parcel and add a knob of butter, black pepper and a sprinkle of  chilli flakes.  Then pop the parcels into your oven along with your tray bake of peppers, onions tomatoes and feta.

For the pork steaks:
Now I'm not going into the ins and outs of how long to cook your pork since the actual time depends on the thickness of your pork steak, the temperature of your pan and of course your preference on whether you want yours medium or well done.
Smear each pork steak with good quality olive oil and seasoned with sea salt and black pepper then pan-fry in a really hot pan.  Don't add oil to the pan or you'll end up with a room full of smoke. I use tongs to sear the fat on the edge of each steak and then leave them to cook for a few minutes turning half way through.


  1. Those pork steaks look so good Janice, all the supermarket ones just don't seem to taste of anything these day. Love all the accompaniments too - my kind of meal:-)

  2. Oh goodness this meal sounds amazing! Please come over and cook for me, pretty please? :)

  3. I have to say pork isn't my favourite unless it's in sausage or bacon form but those steaks really do look very tasty.

  4. We don't book enough pork in my house, just bacon sausage format only!

  5. It all looks great but tastebuds are particularly drawn to the tray bake of peppers, onions tomatoes and feta - YUM!


Thanks for taking the time to comment - much appreciated.
