  • 1 tbsp sunflower oil
  • 2 red onion, roots trimmed and cut into eighths
  • 2 large pear, quartered and cored (leave the skin on)
  • few sprigs rosemary, leaves roughly chopped
  • 4 pork steaks, about 175g/6oz each, trimmed of excess fat
  • 50g blue cheese, cubed


  1. Heat the oil in a roasting tin on the hob (use 2 rings), then add the onions, pears, most of the rosemary and seasoning. Fry for 5 mins or until just starting to caramelise.

  2. Heat grill to high. Season the pork, then arrange among the veg and fry for 5 mins, turning halfway until golden and cooked through. Scatter with the remaining rosemary and the cheese, grill until the cheese starts to melt, then serve.
