Ingredients: 

4 lean pork steaks

1 tbsp olive oil

Finely grated zest and juice of 1 lemon

1 tbsp chopped fresh rosemary or thyme

Freshly ground black pepper

100g (4oz) Wensleydale with apricots, cut into four slices

Fresh vegetables or mixed leaf salad, to serve

 

Method:

1. Put the pork steaks into a shallow dish (not a metal one) and add the olive oil, lemon zest, lemon juice and herbs. Season with black pepper. Turn to coat, then cover and marinate for 30 minutes. 

2. Preheat a char-grill pan or the grill. Char-grill or grill the steaks for 4-5 minutes per side, depending on their thickness. Season.

3. Lift the pork steaks onto warm plates and place a slice of Wensleydale with apricots on top, leaving it for 1-2 minutes to melt while the meat rests. Serve with vegetables or salad.

 

Cook’s tip: Another time, use Wensleydale with cranberries instead of apricots.
