Yesterday we had these incredible spiced potato wedges and marinated pork steak. We also had a nice green salad along with it.
First though, I’d like to share some thoughts about my blogging and photography. As I’ve become more critical of my photography, I only sparingly shared recipes on this website. Because I find sharing my passion for food and sharing my recipes more important than messing about with my camera, I’ve decided to let that go somewhat.
I hope you’ll still drop by every once in a while, even though my photo’s aren’t always as beautiful. Having fun with blogging and sharing my love for food I feel is most important of all.
- Ingredients for the pork steaks:
- 2-3 Pork steaks
- 1 Tbs plum sauce or honey
- 2 Tbs soy sauce
- 1 Tbs ketchup
- 1 ts lemon pepper
- 1 ts sambal ulek
- ½ ts onion powder
- 3 garlic cloves
- Butter and flavorless oil for frying
- Ingredients for the potato wedges – serves 2:
- 500 grams floury potatoes
- 1-2 Tbs flavorless oil
- ¼ ts smoked salt
- ¼ ts ground black pepper
- ¼ ts garlic powder
- ½ ts onion powder
- ¾ ts paprika
- Pinch of cayenne pepper
Marinated pork steak
The marinade is enough for about 3 pork steaks, adjust the amounts for the marinade if you wish to make more.
Clean and smash the garlic clove with your knife. Add to a bowl with the rest of the ingredients and mix.
Cover the pork steaks with the marinade and leave to marinate inside the bowl in the fridge.
To finish I fry the pork steaks in a bit of butter and oil on a medium to high heat for about 4 minutes on each side. They would also do great on a barbecue.
Spiced potato wedges
You could roast the potato with or without the skin. The skin on my potatoes wasn’t that great, so I peeled them.
Preheat the oven at 400°F/200°C
Cut the potatoes into wedges or thick fries, toss in oil and spread over a baking sheet covered with parchment paper. Make sure they don’t overlap.
Bake for 25 minutes in the center of the oven and flip them over.
Bake for another 25 minutes or until golden brown.
In the meantime mix the salt, pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, paprika and cayenne.
When the potato wedges are done, sprinkle with the spice mix. You don’t need to use all of the spices as they are pretty powerful. Toss the potatoes to coat evently and serve with the pork steaks.
I served the wedges and pork with a bit of mayo and a green salad on the side. A fresh cucumber salad would also work perfectly.
