If you are concerned about the fat content of cuts such as pork belly, pork collar steak is a delicious, lower-fat alternative. One of the things I love about pork is how versatile it is. It can accommodate so many flavours, so many different spices and be cooked in so many ways: grilled, roasted, stir-fried or stewed. It can even be served cold with mustard on baguette. Its succulence and flavour make it perfect every time. It is always important to balance dishes well, which is why I like this one so much – the richness of the cream and pork are offset beautifully by the sharpness of the gherkin and mustard sauce.
Divide the steaks onto four plates, pour the sauce over and serve immediately with creamed mashed potatoes – perfect for soaking up the sauce.
