Valentine Pork au Poivre

ingredients

serves: 2
2 tbsp whole black peppercorns
1 tbsp coriander seeds
1/2 tsp salt
2 tbsp oil
2 heart shaped pork steaks
50 g shallots, chopped
1 tbsp dijon mustard
2 tbsp brandy
300 ml single cream

method

1. Crush the peppercorns and coriander seeds separately using a pestle and mortar or with the back of a frying pan on a chopping board. Crush until cracked but do not take as far as powder. Season the pork steaks and coat in the crushed spices.

2. Heat the oil in a frying pan until hot and cook the pork steaks for 3-4 minutes on each side. Remove from the pan and keep to one side.

3. In the same pan add the chopped shallots and continue to cook over a moderate heat until soft (approximately 2 minutes).

4. Add the mustard and brandy.

5. Finally add the cream, bring to the boil and reduce the heat to a simmer, season if necessary.

6. Return the steaks to the pan for 1 minute to warm through. Remove and quickly heat the sauce on a high heat for 30 seconds.

7. Place steaks on a plate and pour over the sauce.

Great flavour sauce and quick to cook. Allow a bit of time for crushing peppercorns etc, some are harder than others. Sauce easily makes enough for four steaks.
