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.

Pat chops dry with a paper towel. Season both sides with salt.

In a shallow bowl combine thyme, rosemary, fennel seeds, sage, marjoram, chives, shallot, star anise, and lemon juice. Add each piece of pork to the marinade turning to coat both sides.

Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Add pork and season with pepper. Sear on each side for 3-5 minutes, or until nicely browned. Tent with foil and let rest for 3 minutes before serving.
