Prep Time

40 min



Our pork steaks are tenderised and coated in dried dill before being pan-fried. Leafy cavolo nero or ‘black kale’ is one of our favourite greens; it's iron-packed and sligthly bitter, counterbalancing the cheesy, parsnip and mustard mash beautifully.

1 Herby Pork Steaks & Mash

Combine the dried dill, half of the mustard & 3 tbsp (6 tbsp) of olive oil in a large mixing bowl

Season with 1/2 tsp (1 tsp) of salt and plenty of pepper to your taste

Add the pork loin steaks, coat evenly and set aside

Prepare 2 (4) A4 size pieces of clingfilm

2 Herby Pork Steaks & Mash

Lay the pork loin steaks on top of 1 (2) piece(s) of clingfilm, with ample space between them

Add any left over mustard mixture on top of each steak

Cover the steaks with the remaining cling film 

Bash with the bottom of a spare pot or rolling pin to 1 1/2cm thickness and set aside until step 5

3 Herby Pork Steaks & Mash

Boil a kettle

Peel the parsnips, cut in half lengthways and chop into pieces (approx. 1cm)

5 Herby Pork Steaks & Mash

Add 1-2 tbsp of olive oil to a pan on a medium-high heat

Once the oil is hot, hold the strip of fat from the pork steaks against the pan, keeping them steady with tongs for 1 min, or until the fat is melted and golden brown

Then lay the steaks flat and cook for 3 min on each side or until cooked through

6 Herby Pork Steaks & Mash

Remove the pork steaks from the pan, cover and leave to rest for 5 min, reserving the pan for step 7

Drain and return the cooked parsnip to the cooking pot, add 1-2 tbsp of butter, a splash of milk, the remaining mustard and the grated cheese

Mash and season to your taste with salt and pepper, then cover until serving
