Pork is one of my favourite meats becasue there is so much that you can do with it. Pork is the and answer to the question, 'If you had to pick just one meat for the rest of your life...'. These pork steak with spicy mustard butter make for a quick, super tasty, casual lunch for guests.

- YieldServes 4
For the spiced mustard butter
- 125g butter
- 2 tbsp mustard powder
- 2 tbsp ready made mustard (I used Colman's)
- 1 tsp medium curry powder
- 1 tbsp maple syrup or honey
- 1 tbsp dried dill
For the pork steaks
- 8 thin cut pork steaks (remove the fat if you'd prefer)
- 2 large cloves garlic (grated)
- 3 tbsp olive oil
- salt and pepper
Mix together the olive oil, grated garlic, salt and pepper and brush over both sides of the pork steaks. Leave to marinate for at least 30 minutes at room temperature, or you can leave them over night if you’re preparing ahead.
To make the spiced mustard butter, melt the 125g of butter and take off of the heat, stir in all of the other ingredients and whisk until it is well combined and has cooled, you need to do this until it is starting to thicken so that the ingredients don’t all drop to the bottom. Put it in the fridge to set.
You can cook the pork on a griddle pan on the stove or on a barbecue, it needs to be at a hot temperature. You need to make sure that they are cooked all the way through, for 1 -1.5 cm thick this will be around 4 to 5 minutes on each side, if your steaks are thicker, then stickly longer. Cut them open if you’re unsure. Once cooked, transfer to a warmed serving plate and put a teaspoon of the butter onto each steak melt.
Serve the steals with butter bean mash (click here for the recipe) and some fresh sauteed greens, this dish is really good with slightly butter flafours like kale and cavalo nero.
