Washing Instruction

Gino's Tip

Remember the fat on your pork neck steaks renders away as your cook it, its not tough rind fat but intra-muscular fat.

Step 1 - Cajun Pork

Season your pork neck steaks with salt, pepper and half of your cajun spice. Heat a large casserole pan over med-high heat, once your pan is hot and just before it smokes, fry your pork neck steaks for 3-4 minutes on each side until browned on both sides. Transfer to your chopping board, reserve your pan for the next step.

Step 2 - Corn, Greens and Basil

Heat your pan once more, add a drizzling of olive oil then fry your chopped garlic and green beans for 1-2 minutes before adding your, chopped basil stems, smoked paprika, remaining cajun spice, drained corn and butterbeans. Cook for 1-2 minutes before adding your cream cheese and cream with a dash of milk. Simmer for 3-4 minutes until your green beans are tender and the rest of your vegetables are heated through. Add your pork neck steaks to your pan and simmer gently for 1-2 minutes until your pork is cooked through - thin with more milk if your sauce is too thick. Taste and season if need be with salt and pepper.

TO SERVE

Divide your corn, greens and basil amongst your servings, top with your pork neck steaks and fresh basil.
