Summer Barbeque

This festive season, why not throw a pork steak on the BBQ

Summer is a great time to enjoy the outdoors, and what better way to do so than by getting creative with pork.  Outside of being the meat of choice at Christmas, many people don't know what else can be done with pork.  And as trimmed lean pork - such as cutlets and medallion steaks are low in fat, what is there to lose?

So now there's no excuse - get some pork on your fork (or barbeque) this summer.

Concerned about overcooking? 

Unlike popular belief, pork does not need to be overcooked to be safe.  In fact, if you cook on medium heat until the meat has only just turned white, and let rest for a few minutes prior to serving, you'll be sure to have a juicy and tender steak.

Flavour addict?

To add that extra flavour kick, marinate pork steaks for 20 minutes (or overnight if possible) with your favourite marinade. Pork's subtle flavour lends itself to almost anything imaginable, however, it you're a little short of time, simply combine 1/3 cup maple syrup, 1 ½ tablespoons of Dijon mustard and 1 tablespoon vegetable oil.  Coat steaks evenly and turn half way through marinating.
