Mexican Pork Steaks

Serve the pork with refried beans for additional Mexican flavour.

Ingredients

  • 400 gram can Mexican spiced tomatoes
  • 6-10 black olives, optional
  • 2 stalks celery, chopped
  • 4 pork steaks
  • ½ 35 gram sachet chilli seasoning mix
  • 1 green pepper, deseeded and sliced
  • ½ cup grated cheese, optional
  • oregano to garnish

Method

  1. Spread the tomatoes over the base of a lasagne-style dish. Scatter the olives and celery on top.
  2. Brown the pork in a hot frying pan in a dash of oil. Transfer to sit on top of the tomatoes and sprinkle over the chilli seasoning mix. (Reserve the remaining mix to use another day). Scatter over the green pepper and cheese if using.
  3. Bake at 200°C for 20-25 minutes until the pork is cooked. Serve garnished with oregano.
  4. Try serving this with Cinnamon Roast Pumpkin, which can be cooked in the oven with the pork. Dice pumpkin into 3cm cubes and toss in oil, a little ground cinnamon and a couple of tablespoons of brown sugar. Roast on a baking paper lined tray at 200ºC for 20-25 minutes.

Cooks Tips

- Look for chilli seasoning mixes from Old El Paso, they can add great flavour to casseroles or make quick rubs for grilling meats. - To save time, buy pre-grated cheese and keep in the freezer. - Browning the pork first ensures good colour. If you are in a hurry, this step can be omitted and cooking time extended 2-3 minutes. - Variation: Use chicken breasts in place of pork steaks
