Our free range pigs feed on grass and lead happy lives in the great British countryside. We work with trusted, local farms to make sure we have the best breeds for the season. At every stage, we support traditional farming methods and encourage a sustainable and ethical approach to meat eating. The practices our suppliers use reduce animal stress and lower food miles.
Even the best meat still requires expert preparation, so we work with master butchers who ensure our pork steaks are of exceptionally high quality, aligned with what you have come to expect from The Black Farmer.
|SHELF LIFE||12 Days from date of delivery|
|STORAGE ADVICE||While we’d be surprised if you could resist the temptation to enjoy immediately, please keep refridgerated unless you intend to eat it right away! Otherwise all our quality meat is suitable for freezing to preserve its taste and texture, meaning you can cook and serve it when you fancy. Once it’s been frozen, please thaw your meat slowly and thoroughly, ideally in the fridge overnight. We vacuum-pack our meat to naturally extend its freshness and make it suitable for home-freezing.|
|PACKAGING||This pack contains approximately 400g of pork. Your item will arrive in a 100% recycled box lovingly packed with FSC-certified shredded spruce from Britain and Sweden, natural sheep’s wool insulation and non-toxic chilled gel packs, all of which can be reused, composted or recycled. To recycle the gel packs, simply cut a corner and dispose of the contents through your normal domestic waste system, as the gel isn’t harmful to the environment. Better still, reuse them by storing in the freezer and chilling other products. The only component from our packaging that can’t be recycled are the foil liners which need to be go in household waste; the poly bags meat comes in in need to go in plastic recycling.|

Pan-frying pork steak
It’s the most popular method for a reason: simplicity. All you need to get started is some oil and pork steak. To pan-fry perfect pork steak, simply:
Heat a heavy-based or non-stick frying pan to around medium heat
Oil the steak on both sides, rub in and season with salt, pepper and anything else you fancy
Put the pork steak in the hot pan. Keep a close eye on it – it should take roughly 6 -7 minutes on each side, depending on the thickness of the steaks. Don’t forget to use tongs rather than a fork (a fork pierces the meat and allows the meat juices that maintain succulence and juiciness to escape)
Cook until the fat has caramelised, then leave the steaks to rest
Grilling pork steak
For grilling or barbecuing your pork steaks, simply:
Season your pork with a spice of your choice. We’ve gone in-depth with our Spices which complement pork guide, so give that a read if you require inspiration
Heat the grill to high heat, then reduce to a moderate heat
Cook the steaks for 6 to 7 minutes on each side, depending on the thickness of the steaks
Remove and allow the steaks to rest, then serve with your favourite accompaniments
Alternatively, if the weather permits, pop onto a prepared BBQ. The same cooking times apply, but make sure the internal temperature of the cooked steak reaches 75°C for 2 minutes using a meat thermometer
