This is an incredibly easy dish to make, I’m talking 5 minutes max! This recipe just goes to show how powerful spices and dressings can be without piling on a load of calories. Reducing the balsamic vinegar creates a lovely, thick glaze that completely changes as soon as it comes out the pan and onto the seasoned pork. The garlic and thyme are a great combination to finish off this Balsamic Pork Loin Steak.
Balsamic Pork Loin Steak
- 150 g pork loin steak
- 1 clove garlic, minced
- 12 tsp died thyme
- salt & pepper, to taste
- 3 Tbsp balsamic vinegar
Pre-heat a non-stick pan or heavy skillet until it is smoking hot.
Make sure the pork steak is at room temperature and make small slits in the fat or completely trim off. This stops the meat from curling up and high heat.
Season the pork on both sides with the salt, pepper, garlic and thyme.
Place the pork in the pan and make sure you hear a loud sizzle to sear the meat and keep the juices in. Cook for 2-3 minutes on each side.
Whilst the pork is cooking pour the vinegar into a separate pan over a medium heat.
Keep stirring the vinegar until it reduces to around a 1/4 of the original liquid. If you don't stir it will stick to the bottom!
