Pork Steaks with Apple
This is one of the most successful pork recipes we have ever developed. All the delicious flavours just blend together perfectly. The meat, the apples and a touch of masala. I served this for a business lunch and prepared everything the day before. On the day, it went into the oven, and wow! What a dish!

Stir-fry the apple wedges in 2 T – 3 T (30 – 45 ml) butter, sprinkle over the sugar and shake the pan over high heat for 4 – 5 minutes until apple wedges are caramelised and golden.
