Make it different
If you’ve got peaches or
nectarines in the fruit bowl, these will also work
well. If you prefer, you can also pan-fry the pork
steaks until cooked, then remove and keep warm.
Add the butter to the pan, tip in the sugar and
chilli. Once the butter foams, tip in the apricots
and cook for 5 mins until they start to cook down
and caramelise. Serve with the steaks.
Heat the grill to medium and put the pork steaks on to a large baking tray lined with foil to catch the juices. Brush with a little oil and season to taste. Arrange the apricots around the pork, cut side up. Dot the apricots with the butter, then sprinkle with the chilli and sugar.
Grill for 15 mins, turning the pork over half way through, until cooked and golden and the apricots are soft and sticky, but still holding their shape. Serve the apricots alongside the pork, drizzled with any sticky juices – great with vegetables and mash.
