Seasoned flour


  1. Mix together, the vinegar, garlic, chillies, salt and pepper, lemon juice and a splash of olive oil and mix to a thin marinade.
  2. Coat the pork steaks with the marinade, refrigerate and allow to infuse for at least 2 hours.
  3. Add the two flours, the taco mix to a shallow dish and mix well to combine
  4. # You can omit the taco mix but it would be a shame as it gives the coating a homemade 'Kentucky-fried' flavour.
  5. Dip both sides of the steaks into the seasoned flour
  6. Knock off any excess flour and dip into the beaten egg, then back into the seasoned flour.
  7. Again, knock off any excess flour.
  8. Fry in a little olive oil until the pork is properly cooked and golden brown on both sides.
  9. Pat any excess oil off on a kitchen towel.
