Main course Pork US/Caribbean

Sweet soul pork


  • 1-2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 red onion, finely chopped
  • 2.5cm root ginger, finely chopped
  • 2 pork steaks/chops
  • 1 garlic clove, crushed
  • 1 tbsp Tabasco
  • 2 tsp grain mustard
  • 150ml chicken stock
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup


Heat the oil in a frying pan and add the pork on a high heat to brown the steaks on both sides bfore transferring to a low oven to keep warm (about 100 degrees should do).  Add the onion to the pan and fry gently for 5 minutes or so until the onion is soft before adding the ginger and garlic and frying for a further 2 minutes.

Turn up the heat to medium high before adding the Tabasco, mustard and chicken stock and a little salt and pepper to the pan. Stir well, then return meat to pan. Bring to the boil, then reduce the heat and simmer for 10 mins until meat is cooked through and the sauce has reduced a little. Transfer the pork steaks to warmed serving plates. Stir the maple syrup into the sauce and season if necessary.
