Oven Baked Pork Steaks

oven baked pork steaks
This recipe for oven baked pork steaks involves a whole bunch of fresh flavours - particularly from the garden. Pork (particularly a cut with a little fat running through the meat) works very well with bold flavours and the locals in our village always 'herb up' their cuts of pork to add some character to whatever they are making.

The longer your pork is marinated the better - overnight results in a very tender meat and a stronger flavour.


1.5kg Pork steaks
2 Sprigs fresh thyme, leaves removed and chopped
2 Sprigs fresh rosemary, leaves removed.
4 Garlic cloves, skinned and sliced
1/2 tps ground black pepper
1 tps hot smoked paprika
300ml Extra virgin olive oil
Juice of 1 lemon

How to make:

1. Lay the pork in a cazuela, mixing bowl or plastic bag

2. Mix all of the ingredients well and rub all over the pork.

3. Marinade for a minimum of 3 hours.

4. Slow bake at 140 degrees  in a terracotta tray for 1 1/2 hours or until done.

Tip: For an additional hint of flavour from the garden place sliced onion under each steak.

Great with seasonal veg and loveley winter warmer.
