Cheddar-Stuffed Pork with Sweet Potato Mash
Pork and cheese? Well, it's an interesting combo if you stuff the steak with Cheddar and then pan-fry it. Add some sweet potato mash next to the pork to complete a delicious meal!
- 8 ounces (225 grams) pork neck (a thick steak)
- 0.5-ounce (15 grams) cheddar cheese (1 slice)
- 3-4 tablespoons vegetable oil
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 1 sweet potato, cut into cubes
- Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F/200 degrees C.
- Cut the pork steak horizontally, through the middle, but not entirely. Slice carefully so that the meat stays intact; you don't want to completely separate the meat, just to butterfly it.
- Season the pork with salt and pepper.
- Place the cheddar slice on the meat, then fold the meat around the cheese.
- Heat the vegetable oil in a cast-iron skillet and start frying the meat. Cook it for about 5 minutes on one side, until it turns golden brown.
- Turn the meat over and add 1 teaspoon of butter on top. Cook it for 4-5 more minutes, then transfer the skillet to the oven. Roast it for 15 minutes.
- Meanwhile, fill a saucepan with water and bring it to a boil. Add the sweet potato cubes and boil until soft. Strain the water and transfer the sweet potatoes to a vertical mixer bowl.
- Add the remaining butter, salt, and pepper. Mash the sweet potatoes.
- Serve the pork steak with sweet potato mash.
