Hawaiian Cherry Mango Pork Steak

This recipe has such a tropical island flavor! 
     Pork blade steaks are one of the cheapest cuts of pork there is and they have some great flavor.  The cherry mango sauce really dresses up this bargain priced meat.  The glaze is made like how a simple chutney is started.
     Cherry Mango Sauce Recipe:  Boil some water, a handful of sugar and a splash of apple cider vinegar in a sauce pot.  (The mixture should taste like a sweet and sour sauce.) 
     Add a small handful of finely chopped onion.
     Add a little bit of minced ginger.
     Add a little bit of finely chopped red bell pepper. 
     Add a small handful of chopped dried cherries.
     Add a small handful of chopped fresh mango. 
     Add sea salt and white pepper.
     Add a pinch of cayenne pepper.
     Add a couple pinches of allspice. 
     Reduce the temperature to low heat.
     Simmer the sauce over low heat till it reduces to a light glaze.
     Recipe:  Remove the excess fat from a pork blade steak. 
     Dry rub the steak with a spice mix of equal amounts of curry powder, sea salt and black pepper. 
     Refrigerate the meat for thirty minutes. 
     Rinse off the excess dry rub marinade and place the pork steak in an oiled broiler pan. 
     Broil the pork steak till it begins to caramelize with brown highlights. 
     Remove the pan from the oven. 
     Spoon half of the cherry mango sauce generously over the pork steak. 
     Cook the sauced pork steak under a broiler till the glaze lightly caramelizes. 
     Remove the pan from the oven and flip the steak over. 
     Pour the remaining cherry mango glaze over the pork and return the pan to the broiler. 
     When the pork is glazed and lightly caramelized remove the pan from the broiler and set the pork steak on a plate. 
     Sprinkle lightly toasted shredded coconut on the pork steak. 
     Serve with asparagus, roasted eggplant and basil roasted garlic mashed potatoes.
     Some of the greatest pork recipes come from Hawaii.  This recipe is so stereotypically Hawaiian in flavor and color.  Hey, you can't beat the basic flavors of Hawaiian food!  The tart, sweet flavor of the cherry and mango in the sauce together is a real flavor sensation!  There is nothing subtle about the flavors in this recipe.
     For the roasted garlic mash potatoes, just cream some boiled potatoes with chopped fresh basil and roasted garlic.  Season the potatoes with sea salt and pepper.  Pipe the creme potatoes onto the plate with a pastry bag.
     This is a delicious pork steak recipe! ...  Shawna
