Pork Steaks with Cheese Crust

  • 4 ready sliced pork escalopes, about 125g/4oz each
  • Ground black pepper
  • 11/2 slices white bread, processed into breadcrumbs
  • 50g/2oz strong, tasty, hard cheese, mature cheddar or Gruyere coarsly grated
  • 25g/1oz butter, melted
  • 75g/3oz soft goat’s cheese, such as Chavroux
  • Slice of lemon to serve

Preparation time: 10 minutes
Cooking time: 10 minutes

1. Put the escalopes between two sheets of clingfilm and bat out with a rolling pin. Season with plenty of pepper.

2. Mix together the breadcrumbs, grated cheese and melted butter.

3. Grill the pork for 3-4 minutes, fairly close to the heat, until it changes colour and feels firm. Spread the goat’s cheese over the pork, leaving it thick in places. Sprinkle the breadcrumb mixture on top and pop under the grill, slightly further away from the heat, for 3-4 minutes or until cheese is bubbling and breadcrumbs are golden. Serve with a slice of lemon.
