Irish Pork Steak

This is the most visited recipe over on the blog, so I thought I really ought to share it here with you too.

It is one of those dinners that just evokes such nostalgia in this house…. it was a favourite in both our homes when we were growing up.

Stuffed Irish Pork Steak

Stuffed Irish Pork Steak

Ingredients:

  • Pork Steak
  • Bread Crumbs – amount depends on size of pork steak
  • 1 onion, sliced
  • Herbs of your choice – I used sage and thyme this time around
  • Pepper and Salt
  • Butter or Lard
  • Cocktail sticks

Method:

Firstly you will need to ‘open’ up the pork steak, so that it is flat and suitable for stuffing.  Watch the video here which shows you how.

Preheat your oven to 180 degrees.

To make the stuffing:  gently fry your onion so that they are slightly cooked.  Add your onion to the breadcrumbs together with your herbs and seasoning.  (The herbs and seasoning I vary… in summer I might chop some tomatoes and basil, or some apple – the choice is yours).  Add some chopped butter or lard (or even a squeeze of lemon juice) to the mix.

Spoon the breadcrumbs onto your prepared pork steak.  Use the cocktail sticks to ‘pin’ it altogether.  (My Mum, bless her, used to have a special needle and thread in the kitchen drawer to ‘sew’ the pork steak back together!)

Place your pork on a greased baking dish, and bake in oven for 30/35 minutes per lb/500 gr.

Serve with some roast potatoes and your favourite vegetables.

Enjoy 🙂
