  • 1 tbsp coriander seeds
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 tbsp oil
  • 2 heart shaped pork steaks
  • 2 oz shallots chopped
  • 1 tbsp dijon mustard
  • 2 tbsp brandy
  • 1/2 pint single cream


  • Crush the peppercorns and coriander seeds separately using a pestle and mortar or with the back of a frying pan on a chopping board. Crush until cracked but do not take as far as powder. Season the pork steaks and coat in the crushed spices.
  • Heat the oil in a frying pan until hot and cook the pork steaks for 3-4 minutes on each side. Remove from the pan and keep to one side.
  • In the same pan add the chopped shallots and continue to cook over a moderate heat until soft (approximately 2 minutes).
  • Add the mustard and brandy.
  • Finally add the cream, bring to the boil and reduce the heat to a simmer, season if necessary.
  • Return the steaks to the pan for 1 minute to warm through. Remove and quickly heat the sauce on a high heat for 30 seconds.
  • Place steaks on a plate and pour over the sauce.
