Boneless pork shoulder steaks
Might’ve been my last post where I’d stated that I wasn’t really surprised with my most viewed post of 2012 (and I think I probably forgot to say which one it was). What I can’t quite believe is that I hadn’t made it since then. And that was my first foray into the blogosphere using WP. I’ve found this particular recipe on several pins within Pinterest, with good, if not limited, feedback. So, I decided to make it again last night in preparation for today’s lunch. Well, reading through the post itself I was surprised that I hadn’t covered the saucepan with a lid all the way through cooking as I normally would. Out of curiosity I left it on fairly high heat, in my favourite heavy-based, without a lid and, my-oh-my, what a mess! The sauce bubbled up and over which meant I had to scrub my hob/stove top late last night. Turned out I’d used the wrong saucepan. Still, at least it tasted exactly as before, with incredibly tender meat and a dipping sauce, regardless of how messy it is, with fairly robust flavours of sweet balanced with the sharpness of whole grain mustard. Nothing bombastic here, I’m pleased to say. And this leaves a wonderfully warm and lingering aftertaste that left me licking my lips for a while. For the actual post please click here.
