Italian Style Pork Steaks with Sage and White Wine

This was such a simple and refreshing supper. It's kind of like a Saltimbocca but without the ham. Despite the snow my sage plant seems healthy and it was nice to just step outside and pick the herb. I definitely need to experiment with more interesting herbs in the next growing season. I also finally managed to find fresh curry leaves after hunting for ages, so I can now make a proper South Indian curry.

The original recipe suggests serving this with pasta and roast tomatoes for more of an Italian feel but it was just as good with boiled potatoes and broccoli.

Italian Style Pork Steaks with Sage and White Wine (adapted from a Waitrose Recipe Card)
(Serves 2)
15g low fat spread
1 tbsp olive oil
2 pork loin steaks 
6-8 fresh sage leaves
2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
100ml white wine

Heat the low fat spread in a frying pan with the oil until sizzling. Add the steaks and cook over a medium heat for 14 minutes, turning once until the meat is lightly browned on both sides.
Pour off any fat from the pan and add the sage leaves, garlic and plenty of seasoning. Cook for 1 minute then add the wine. Cover the pan and simmer gently for 2 more minutes.
Transfer the steaks to warmed serving plates, increase the heat and simmer the juices until reduced to half. Season to taste and pour over the steaks.
