Chef's Notes

We have determined the nutritional value of oil for frying based on a retention value of 10% after cooking. The exact amount may vary depending on cook time and temperature, ingredient density, and the specific type of oil used.


  1. Has a nice texture and flavor. I also dipped and soaked it in buttermilk before patting in the breading. It was great and cooked fairly fast in oil. Its good enough for company any day. Its a great change.
  2. LOVED this steak. I love pork steak and I'm excited to find a great new way to make it. If you don't have all the spices make it anyway. I didn't have cinnamon tumeric or paprica and it still was wonderful. I can't wait to try it again when I have them all. I also - Read more ...
  3. Did not have all the ingredients but will be getting them this is great even if you do not have everything.
  4. This was very good. My first time actually deep frying a pork steak but the seasonings were wonderful. Very tasty. I served it with some kicked up peas and some potatoes.
  5. This tastes awesome but may be the nutrionally worst dish I've ever prepared. For true pork steaks (cut from pork shoulder) and deep frying the fat content is probably more like 150g per serving.
  6. Delicious! The only thing I did didfferently was to soak my steaks in buttermilk for about an hour before cooking, this helps tenderize them and I just love the flavor. These are my family's favorite new way to have fried pork. Thanks.
  7. Excellent coating and flavor.
  8. This was very good- quick and delish!! Thanks for posting it!
  9. Very tasty. I found that if the pork cooked a little longer (like a minute or two) than just till it surfaced it made the flavor more robust.
