Do you find this current spell of hot weather makes you lose your appetite?
No, me neither… But it’s definitely a time for something light yet tasty!
Pork steaks, jacket potato and salad was on the menu for tonight but I couldn’t help but think that it seemed a tad…. Boring??
Time to EMMARISE (this is what hubby calls it when I “tweak” recipes to suit my taste/ ingredients)
Too hot to go to the shops so I took inspiration from the stuff I had in. OMG I Just whipped up an amazing syn free marinade for my pork steaks… WOW!! This I must share!
Using my trusted hand blender, I blitzed 3 sliced spring onions. Garlic granules, soy sauce (light and dark), rice wine vinegar, Chinese 5spice, smoked paprika, chilli flakes & granulated sweetener.
I poured this over my pork steaks in an oven proof dish then topped with chopped peppers.
Bake in the middle of the oven for 20-30 mins (jacket spuds sprayed with frylight & coated with ground salt are already crisping up on the top shelf).
Serve with a big green salad and pour the sauce over the jacket spud – who needs butter with a sauce like this??
