Marinating in calvados

While on holiday in France recently we discovered what a marvellous marinade calvados (apple brandy) was for pork steaks, so once home we tried a sort of tex-mex version to accompany the French haricot beans cooked in duck fat - very Basque!

THe meal was fantastic but the presentation could have been improved with a little green, maybe a sweet pepper?

Mise en place


  1. Drain the pork steaks and discard the marinade - it could be used for making a sauce but I didn't need gravy this time
  2. Add the masa harina to a large place and press the steaks into the flour to coat
  3. Oil the grill with a little olive oil and griddle for about 8 minutes - turning once if not using a double-sided griddle
  4. Leave to rest for 5 minutes
  5. Serve
