Delicious pork loin steaks cooked with mushrooms in a creamy sauce, and all done in under 20 minutes. Too good to be true? Not at all! Here’s the recipe!

Ingredients

  • pork loin steaks
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 shallots chopped
  • 2-3 large field mushrooms or portobello mushrooms chopped
  • 2 rosemary sprigs chopped
  • a splash of cognac or brandy (optional)
  • 1 tbsp flour if you using cream instead of crème fraîche
  • 80ml/1/4 cup stock beef or chicken
  • 1 tbsp whole-grain mustard
  • 200 g / ⅔ cup crème fraîche or heavy cream
  • salt and pepper to taste

Method:

  • Rub your pork loin steaks with some sea salt.
  • In a cast iron pan or a stainless steel pan heat a tablespoon of olive oil and brown your pork loin steaks for no longer than 2 minutes on each side.
  • Remove the pork to a separate plate and set aside.
  • To the same pan add shallots and cook on medium heat, stirring constantly to avoid burning for 3 minutes, than add mushroom and chopped rosemary and cook for 5 more minutes.
  • When shallot and mushroom juices evaporate and the pan is dry, hit it with a shot of cognac while scraping the burnt bits with a wooden spoon. Then sprinkle with flour and stir to combine. (Skip the flour if using creme fraîche for the sauce.) 
  • Add stock, whole grain mustard, creme fraîche and stir to combine.
  • Return pork loin steaks to the pan, bring to a boil and let it simmer for 2 minutes longer and take the pan off the heat. Taste and add salt and pepper if needed. Enjoy with rice or potatoes.
