Instructions based off 2cm thick pork steaks

NOTE: This method will cook the steak to just white. If you prefer a little bit of pink just reduce the cooking time. If your steak is thicker than 2cm, adjust the cooking time on the second side.

STEP 2

Turn it over once and allow it to cook for 2 more minutes.

STEP 3

Take the steak straight out of the pan without flipping over and place on a plate to rest for two minutes. That allows the juices to settle and it will be lovely and tender.
