Ingredients
Ingredients
4 lean pork loin steaks (approx 400g)
6 cloves garlic, crushed
juice 1 lemon
good pinch black pepper
2 apples
2 red onions
2 tsp balsamic vinegar
Method
  1. Add the pork, garlic, lemon juice and pepper to a food bag, seal, then mix well. Add the pork and mix until thoroughly coated. Leave in the fridge for at least 20 minutes or overnight.
  2. Cut the apples into quarters and remove the cores. Cut each quarter in half so you have 16 wedges in total.
  3. Slice the onions into ½cm rings. leaving the skin on as this holds them together on the barbecue.
  4. Put the apples and slices of onion on the BBQ or griddle pan, use a spatula to carefully turn the onion slices. Cook for about 5-10 minutes depending on the heat of your barbecue.
  5. Once the onions are cooked, remove the skin, drizzle with balsamic vinegar and shake them up.
  6. Cook the pork steaks for 3-5 minutes on each side, depending on thickness. Cut into them to check they're cooked through, remove from the barbecue and cover with foil. Leave to rest for 3-4 minutes, before serving with the onion and apple, plus plenty of salad.
Chefs tips
  • This also works well with lamb steaks, chicken breast or turkey escalopes.
  • You could also cook this on a griddle pan or under the grill. If you don't have a large griddle pan, cook the onions and apples first and keep them warm while you cook the meat.
  • If you want to prepare the apples beforehand ready for grilling, drizzle the wedges in a little lemon juice to stop them browning.
  • Freezing instructions: Suitable for freezing once cooked. Portion for freezing. Defrost in the microwave then reheat covered in foil in a moderate oven. Reheat until piping hot.
