Back when I was a meat eating child, I would get super excited when my mother made pork chops for dinner. She didn’t make them often, so it felt like a special night when she did. I always loved pork chops – the taste, the texture… and she used to make them with this bright pink Ah So sauce (does that stuff still exist?). Browsing Waitrose last week, I noticed Quorn has a meat free version of pork style steaks, so I snapped up a couple of packets right away.

I was so pleased with how these turned out! The texture was great, and so was the taste! These meat free steaks actually tasted like I remember pork tasting (it’s probably been 20 years since I had real pork, so I can’t be absolutely sure). My husband and I both thoroughly enjoyed this meal, and I will definitely be making them again.

I served the pork steaks on top of fresh baby spinach leaves, with roasted potatoes, broccoli, and apple sauce. As for serving size, I had one steak and my husband had two.

Ingredients
  1. 2 packages Quorn Meat Free Pork Steaks (not frozen)
  2. 1 tbsp runny honey
  3. 2 tbsp soy sauce
  4. 3 tbsp lemon juice
  5. 1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
  6. pinch of ground nutmeg
  7. 1 tbsp vegetable oil
  8. 1 tbsp grainy mustard
Instructions
  1. Prepare the sauce by adding the honey, soy sauce, lemon juice, cinnamon and nutmeg to a bowl and whisking until blended. Pour the sauce onto a dinner plate or other shallow dish. Add the pork steaks and spoon the sauce over them to coat all sides. Wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate for up to 2 hours (or a minimum of 30 minutes).
  2. Heat the oil in a skillet and cook the pork steaks over medium/medium-low heat for 6-8 minutes, turning frequently (reserve the marinade).
  3. Once the pork steaks are cooked and hot throughout, remove them from the pan. Add the remaining marinade to the pan, along with the mustard, and cook for a minute or two, stirring. Pour the sauce over the pork steaks.
Notes
  1. I found my pork steaks were getting too much colour too fast, so after about 4 minutes, I put my (oven-safe) skillet in the oven for the remaining time (at 175C). Cooking on the hob at a lower temperature may prevent the need for this.
  2. Serve with roasted potatoes and any vegetable of your choice. Apple Sauce is a lovely accompanyment to these Pork Steaks.
