This was a recipe I learnt at school and it is a favorite with my hubby and I. It is so easy to make, and can be cheap when the meat is on special. Would be perfect for something different for flatting students who don’t want to cook a whole lot of meat up, and have a mini grill oven. It is also one of those recipes where when you have done it a few times you can start adjusting amounts to your liking depending on how sweet you would like it.
1 Pork steak or sirloin
2 Rashers of Middle Bacon
1/4 Cooking apple sliced (Granny smith) OR a couple of spoonfuls of stewed apple
1 sage leaf (Optional)
1 tsp brown sugar
1 tsp Golden Syrup
Preheat oven to 180 degrees Celsius. Wrap pork steak with apple placed inside with the bacon. Sprinkle brown sugar over. Place in a lightly greased dish. Cook for 20-30 mins, basting once or twice with juices (There is more juices when using stewed apple) Baste with golden syrup in last 5-10 mins. Is yummy Served with baked/roasted potatoes and steamed veges or a salad.
The brown sugar and golden syrup are defiantly just a guideline!! We love ours having that very sweet, crisp flavour so i actually do about 2 TBSP of brown sugar, then I have golden syrup in a bottle which I lightly pour over.
