Balsamic Glazed Pork Steak with Stir Fried Broccoli and Golden Raisins (Serves 2-4)
Spices are a cook’s best friend because they enable you to prepare an endless variety of meals. Case in point: This edition of Balsamic Glazed Pork Steak. The last time I grilled a pork steak, I gave it a Southwest flavor by dusting it with Chipotle Pepper powder. This time I gave it an Island flavor by dusting it with Jamaican Allspice. You gotta love how changing one ingredient can open the door to a new eating experience.
Prep Time and Cook Time: 15-20 minutes
2 bone-in pork steaks
3 stalks of broccoli
Directions: Pre-heat non-stick grill-pan or skillet over medium heat. Season both sides of pork steak with salt, garlic powder, and Jamaican Allspice. Lay pork steak in the hot grill-pan and let sear undisturbed for 6 minutes. Turn with tongs to let the second side sear for 6 minutes. Splash balsamic vinegar generously across the top of the meat. After the second side has seared, turn again and coat the other side with balsamic vinegar. Turn again and let the freshly coated side sear a few more seconds. Meanwhile, cut florets from broccoli stalks and divide into bite-sized pieces. Melt two tablespoons of coconut oil over medium heat in a wok. Add broccoli and stir until broccoli is coated with coconut oil. Add a handful of golden raisins, cover, and let cook 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add a little water if the wok becomes too dry before the broccoli is sufficiently tender. When done, transfer pork steaks to a plates. Fill the rest of the plate with broccoli and golden raisins. Enjoy!
Notes: A whole pork steak may be too much to eat at one meal. At my house, my wife eats half a steak and I eat a whole one. I usually eat her leftovers the next day with more stir fry or a baked sweet potato.
