Herbaceous Pan-Seared Pork Steak

Herbaceous Pan-Seared Pork Steak

Break those dried herbs out of the pantry and put them to work on our delicious bone-in Pork Steaks. If you haven't used your herbs in awhile, a good tip for bringing them back to life is to heat them in a pan on a low heat until you can swell their aroma (about 15-30 seconds). Less than 30 minutes from start to finish to sit down and enjoy a nice, juicy and aromatic pasture-raised pork steak. Some steamed vegetables or a simple salad on the side and you've got yourself a perfect meal.
