Things I have been cooking lately #91: Glazed pork steaks with apple

After a bit of a hiatus from new recipe investigations due to busy-ness I am back in the kitchen. I made this as a Sunday dinner and served it with roast potatoes. It was a big hit and I will definitely be making it again.

Glazed pork steaks with apple

6 thin cut pork loin steaks, all fat removed
3 teaspoons of Chinese five spice
1 large red onion cut into thin wedges through the core
3 red apples, cored and cut into eighths
2 tablespoons of chutney (I used half caramelised red onion and half apple)
1 tablespoon of red wine vinegar
200ml chicken stock
Olive oil

Rub the steaks with the five spice and a little salt. Heat a little olive oil in a large frying pan and cook the steaks for three minutes on each side until golden brown and cooked through. Set aside on a plate.

Add a little more oil to the pan and turn the the heat down a little. Add the onion and cook for two minutes. Then add the apple and cook for three more minutes. Add the chutney, then the vinegar and the chicken stock. Bring up to a rapid simmer and reduce for ten minutes.

Remove the apples to a serving platter and return the steaks to the pan. Turn gently in the sauce to glaze. Add the steaks and the sauce to your serving dish. Serve with mashed or roast potatoes.

Serves 4 – 6



  1. I just made stuffed pork chops with pineapple — really delish. Yours looks tasty, too. Nothing like pork and fruit. Can’t go wrong!

      There was actually a pineapple option with the original recipe. I might try it next time.

  2. Pork and apples are so good – a classic combination 🙂 That looks delicious!

      It had so much flavour. The five spice and the chutney were awesome together.

      It was really good. I would make it again and possibly try different chutneys.
