Wine Tip

Pilsner
A cold, crisp German pilsner goes supremely well with this dish. It cleanses the palate, but doesn’t overwhelm pork’s straightforward flavor.

Step 1

Pork steak with homemade fries

Preheat oven to 200°C/390°F. Cut potatoes into thin, French fry-shaped strips. In a large bowl, toss with olive oil, curry powder, ground nutmeg, and smoked salt. Transfer to a parchment paper-lined baking sheet and bake in preheated oven, turning occasionally, at 200°C/390°F for approx. 25 – 30 min. until crispy and golden.
