Ingredients

  • 4 Lean pork leg steaks
  • 150g (5oz) Slices Mozzarella cheese
  • 50g (2oz) Breadcrumbs (homemade or shop bought) or crisps
  • 30ml (2tbsp) Tomato ketchup

Method

Preparation

Preheat oven to 200C, Gas Mark 6.

 

1

Place 4 lean pork leg steaks on a chopping board. Cover with a clear plastic bag and flatten with a rolling pin until about 0.5cm (¼”) thick.

2

Cut each steak into 4 small ‘bite sizes’ and place on top a slice of Mozzarella cheese, taken from a 150g pack of Mozzarella cheese slices (each thin slice weighs about 10g (½ oz – You may need to trim the slices).

3

Squeeze 30ml (2tbsp) tomato ketchup onto a plate and dip each ‘bite’ into the sauce. Place 50g (2oz) fresh breadcrumbs OR shop bought crumbs, OR 1 small packet low-fat/low-salt ready salted crisps, finely crunched, onto another plate and season.

4

Lightly dip both sides of the ‘bite’ into the sauce and then dip into the crumbs or crisps until well covered.

5

Place on a non-stick baking tray and bake for about 20 minutes until crisp and golden.

Serving Suggestions

Serve with baked ‘chip’ slices, relish and large mixed salad (*to make the crumb cheesy add 30ml (2tbsp) Parmesan cheese, grated to the breadcrumbs).
