How to Cook Steak on a Shoestring

by Tom Griffin

Pork fillet (tenderloin) is a highly underrated and underused meat for reasons I do not understand.. It is a fantastic alternative to the leanest cuts of beef for a fraction of the cost


Step 1

Each pork fillet is good for two generous portions

Step 2

Trim off the tail end of the fillet and portion

Step 3

Cut along the length of each piece a little more than half way down

Step 4

Open up an begin to flatten out

Step 5

Tenderise each steak to about an inch thick as evenly as possible

Step 6

Once steaks are tenderised they will be roughly double their original size.

Step 7

Season with salt and pepper

Step 8

For this one I've coated the steaks with a paste of tomato purée with herbs and spice.. (Optional)

Step 9

Add a couple tablespoons of your favourite oil.

Step 10

Cook on a medium heat for 4 - 5 mins either side turning often

Step 11

Once cooked remove from heat and allow the steaks to rest for about 5 mins

Step 12
