Pork Chump Steak with Herb Butter, Garlic & Rosemary Potatoes and Honey-Glazed Carrots

METHOD

This cut, often overlooked, is wonderfully tender and full of flavour, making it perfect for a simple yet satisfying meal. Here's a recipe that brings out the best in this cut:

Thick-Cut Pork Chump Steak with Herb Butter

Instructions:

  1. Prepare the Herb Butter:
    • Mix together the softened butter, chopped parsley, thyme, minced garlic, lemon zest, salt, and pepper in a bowl.
    • Place the mixture on a piece of cling film or parchment paper, and roll it into a log shape. Refrigerate until firm.
  2. Season the Steaks:
    • Take the pork steaks out of the fridge about 30 minutes before cooking to bring them to room temperature. This ensures even cooking.
    • Season both sides of the steaks generously with salt and pepper.
  3. Cook the Steaks:
    • Heat the olive oil in a frying pan over medium-high heat.
    • Once hot, add the pork steaks and cook for about 4-5 minutes on each side or until they are nicely browned and cooked to your liking. For a thick cut, you might need to cook them a bit longer.
  4. Add Flavour:
    • Reduce the heat to medium. Add the tablespoon of butter, chopped garlic, and a sprinkle of your fresh herbs to the pan.
    • Spoon the melting butter and herbs over the steaks as they finish cooking.
  5. Rest the Meat:
    • Remove the steaks from the pan and let them rest for a few minutes. This helps in retaining the juices within the meat.
  6. Serve:
    • Slice the chilled herb butter and place a disc on top of each steak. The warmth of the meat will melt the butter, creating a flavourful sauce.
    • Finish with a squeeze of lemon juice for a fresh kick.

Garlic and Thyme Roasted Potatoes

  1. Preheat Oven: Preheat your oven to 200°C (400°F).
  2. Prepare Potatoes: Wash the baby potatoes and halve them. In a large bowl, toss the potatoes with olive oil, minced garlic, thyme leaves, salt, and pepper.
  3. Roast: Spread the potatoes in a single layer on a baking tray. Roast in the preheated oven for 25-30 minutes or until they are golden and crispy on the outside. Halfway through, stir the potatoes to ensure even roasting.
  4. Serve: Once done, check the seasoning and add more salt or pepper if needed. Serve hot alongside your pork chump steak.

Honey-Glazed Carrots

Instructions:

  1. Cook Carrots: In a large pan, bring water to a boil. Add the carrots and cook for about 4-5 minutes until they are tender but still have a bit of crunch.
  2. Drain: Drain the carrots and return them to the pan.
  3. Glaze: Add butter, honey, and a pinch of cinnamon to the carrots. Cook over medium heat, tossing frequently, until the carrots are well-coated with the glaze and heated through. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  4. Serve: Serve the honey-glazed carrots warm with your pork chump steak.

  • 1 tsp fresh thyme, finely chopped
  • 1 small clove of garlic, minced

Pairings

Wine Pairings

  1. Red Wine:
    • Pinot Noir: A lighter red wine like Pinot Noir can complement the pork without overwhelming it. Its fruity notes and slight earthiness can enhance the herbs and spices used in the recipe.
    • Zinfandel: If you prefer a fuller-bodied wine, Zinfandel, with its bold fruit flavours and a hint of spice, pairs well with the savoury and slightly sweet elements of the dish.
  2. White Wine:
    • Chardonnay: A medium-bodied Chardonnay, especially one that's not too oaky, can balance the richness of the pork and buttery sides. Its creamy texture and hints of citrus can be a delightful match.
    • Riesling: For a sweeter contrast, a slightly off-dry Riesling can work well, especially with the honey-glazed carrots. Its acidity and fruitiness can cut through the richness of the meal.

Beer Pairings

  • Pale Ale: A pale ale, known for its balanced bitterness and malty sweetness, can complement the pork and the caramelisation of the roasted potatoes and carrots.
  • Amber Lager: This type of beer offers a smooth maltiness with a moderate hop flavour, which can pair nicely with the hearty and earthy flavours of the meal.

Non-Alcoholic Options

  • Apple Cider (non-alcoholic): The natural sweetness and slight acidity of apple cider make it a refreshing complement to the pork and the sides.
  • Iced Tea with Lemon: A glass of chilled iced tea with a squeeze of lemon can provide a refreshing and palate-cleansing effect, balancing the richness of the dish.
  • Sparkling Water with a Twist: A simple yet elegant option, sparkling water with a twist of lemon or lime, offers a refreshing and light accompaniment that doesn't compete with the flavours of your meal.
