  • Season pork steaks to taste. Heat oil in a large frying pan over high heat, add steaks and butter and cook until golden (2-3 minutes each side). Transfer steaks to an oven tray, transfer to oven to cook through. Meanwhile, add onion to pan and stir until tender (3-5 minutes). Add apples and sage and turn occasionally until tender (2-4 minutes). Transfer to a plate, deglaze pan with cider and cook until slightly reduced (1-2 minutes), then stir through crème fraîche and serve hot with potato purée and pork steaks.
