Foodie Tuesday – Hummerston’s are Getting Pork on Your Fork

The boys at Hummerston’s Gourmet Meats Lane Cove West have a real following. This butcher shop is so popular, the last time the Pope was in Sydney they supplied all the meat!

How to Pork Properly

You’re busy. You don’t have much time to spend preparing meals. When you get home from work you want a quick and tasty meal. Hummerston’s Gourmet Meats Lane Cove West is here to help you with their range of Pork products including their juicy tender pork steaks. You can whip up a tender pork steak in just 10 minutes by following the simple 6-2-2 method.

  1. Pre heat a pan, BBQ plate, griddle pan like you would for any steak
  2. Place a 2cm pork steak on the preheated cooking surface and cook WITHOUT turning for six minutes
  3. Turn once and cook for a further 2 minutes. This will ensure you cook the steak till it is just white (if you like your pork a bit pink just reduce the cooking time)
  4. Take the steak out of the pan without flipping it over and let it rest for two minutes. This is a critical step to ensure tenderness.

So to recap:  6 minutes on one side, 2 minutes on the other and 2 minutes to rest = 10 minutes pork steak


Mr ITC highly recommends the Hummerston’s Asian Sesame Pork Medallions. He whacks them on the BBQ and in 10 minutes they are done!!!
