cooking skill

4 people


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



Preheat oven to 200C, Gas Mark 6.


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.


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).


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.


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


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).
