Free Range Pork From Morley Butchers
Our pork is sourced from Blythburgh Free Range Pork is Suffolk where the animals have a wholesome free range lifestyle, enjoy high welfare standards and a natural diet. This freedom to roam and be active means that the animals grow at a slower rate (compared to a pig raised in a pen). This slower more natural rate of growth means that the meat develops a traditional superior flavour and succulence not available elsewhere. Read more about our pork here >>

Cooking Method For Braise Pork Steak
Preheat the oven to 180°C/350°F/Gas Mark 4. Place the pork on a board between two layers of cling film. Using the base of a small saucepan or a rolling pin, bash them all over until 1cm thick.
In a shallow dish, mix together the vinegar, honey and herbs. Season with salt and pepper. Add the pork and turn to coat. Cover and set to one side.
Meanwhile, heat the butter and oil in a non-stick ovenproof frying pan. Add the onions and cook for 2–3 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add the apples and cook for 2 minutes, until the apples and onions are starting to caramelise. Remove from the pan.
Drain the pork from the marinade and reserve the marinade. Cook the pork for 3 minutes on one side over a medium heat. Turn the pork over and return the onions, apples and reserved marinade to the pan. Place the pan on the middle shelf of the oven and cook for a further 6–8 minutes until the juices run clear.
Divide the pork between four plates, serve right away with sweet potato mash and seasonal green vegetables.
