Smokey Barbecue Pork Scotch Steaks

Tender and flavoursome, these pork scotch steaks are perfect served with crispy roast potatoes and steamed greens.



  • 2 Pork Scotch Fillet Steaks
  • 1 tbsp smokey barbecue sauce
  • 1 tsp freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp fennel seeds
  • sea salt and cracked black pepper


  1. In a shallow dish, mix the barbecue sauce, lemon juice, olive oil, fennel seeds, 1/4 tsp salt and 1/4 tsp pepper together.
  2. Add the pork steaks and turn in the marinade until evenly. Cover the steaks (still in the dish) and allow to marinate at room temperature for about 30 minutes.
  3. Heat a skillet to high heat. Turn steaks in marinade to coat, then place on the skillet. Immediately reduce the heat to just under medium and cook for 3-4 minutes on each side, being careful not to overcook.
  4. When the steaks are almost ready, spoon over any remaining marinade and sprinkle with a little sea salt, then turn steaks over and cook for another 30 seconds.
  5. Remove the steaks from the pan and place on a cutting board.
  6. Rest for about 6 minutes before slicing, then serve with any sauce left from the pan.
