    Serves: 4 

    • 4 medium potatoes
    • oil for frying
    • salt and pepper to taste
    • 4 pork loin steaks
    • 1 onion, thinly sliced
    • 2 tablespoons wholemeal flour
    • 1 handful grated cheese

    Prep:10min  ›  Cook:50min  ›  Ready in:1hr 

    1. Preheat oven to 180 C / Gas 4.
    2. In a saucepan, boil the potatoes in lightly salted water for about 20 minutes, until firm to the bite. As soon as the potatoes are cool enough to touch, dice them and spread over a baking tray to cool.
    3. Meanwhile, heat oil in an ovenproof frying pan. Season the steaks and fry over a high heat until browned on both sides. Remove from the pan and set aside on a plate. Cover with tin foil.
    4. Turn down the heat and add onion with a pinch of salt. Cook and stir until onions are soft and golden brown. Remove from the pan and add to the meat on the plate.
    5. Dust the diced potatoes with flour and shake off any excess. The flour will soak up extra moisture and make the potatoes crispy. Add a little more oil to the pan and let it get very hot. Add potatoes in a single layer to the pan and fry, in batches if necessary, until golden brown and crisp on all sides. Try not to move the potatoes around too much, allowing them to get crispy.
    6. Remove the potatoes from the pan and add the steaks back. Layer with potatoes and onions and sprinkle cheese on top.
    7. Place in the oven and bake for 10 to 15 minutes, until cheese has melted. Serve immediately.

    I was looking for something slightly more complicated to cook in my new cast iron griddle pan than hot cheese sandwiches and various meats. I followed this recipe, but used new potatoes rather than normal ones. It was absolutely amazing, and the first thing I have ever cooked that tasted 'restaurant quality.' I don't know if it was the pan or the oven stage at the end, but it gets my highest recommendation. Also, you can omit the pork and it becomes a wonderful potato side dish. If you're doing that, I recommend adding a bit of butter when frying the potatoes.  -  18 Jun 2013


    So the wife was away and I needed to use some pork steaks to feed the kids. I wanted something simple and quick. Well it is simple, but not quick. However the kids and I loved it! In fact I've made it twice in one week due to requests! The portions aren't that big though, so my advice...get more steaks and cut more potatoes. Yum!  -  15 Aug 2015


    Am in the process of making this using tinned potatoes, 1/2 an onion and no flour didn't have any in, dried the potatoes though with tea towel, can see how it might be greasy for some so watch the oil amount when adding the onions to the chops, back soon with the verdict Well first of all was disappointed that the fat on the chops wasn't crispy but realise that's not how this recipe works.. apart from that it was fab there were so many flavours.. I used salt and mixed herbs as seasoning.. potatoes were great but would like to use 'normal' potatoes next time to compare, but for speed tinned are great sliced, it was surprisingly filling and I didn't bother to make any accompaniments. I suspect I will be living on this for the next few weeks lol as its the FIRST time my chops don't taste like cardboard!!  -  21 Nov 2015
