Recipe of the day
Balsamic Glazed Pork Steak with Stir Fried Broccoli
Pre-heat non-stick grill-pan or skillet over medium heat. Season both sides of pork steak with salt, garlic powder, and Jamaican Allspice. Lay pork steak in the hot grill-pan and let sear undisturbed for 6 minutes. Turn with tongs to let the second side sear for 6 minutes. Splash balsamic vinegar generously across the top of the meat. After the second side has seared, turn again and coat the other side with balsamic vinegar. Turn again and let the freshly coated side sear a few more seconds. Meanwhile, cut florets from broccoli stalks and divide into bite-sized pieces. Melt two tablespoons of coconut oil over medium heat in a wok. Add broccoli and stir until broccoli is coated with coconut oil. Add a little water if the wok becomes too dry before the broccoli is sufficiently tender. When done, transfer pork steaks to a plates. Fill the rest of the plate with broccoli. Enjoy!
