5 Pork Steaks
1 cup apple cider
1/2 tbsp kosher salt
2 tsp black pepper
2 tsp paprika
2 tsp smoked paprika
2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tbsp Paleo Living Honey Cajun Rub
1 cup pomegranate juice(or fruit blend)
1 tbsp water
1/2 tsp corn starch

Take pork steaks(should be about 1 inch thick) and place in a one gallon zip loc bag. Add one cup of apple cider to bag and let it marinate for 4 hours to overnight.

Remove steaks from cider and discard liquid. Coat steaks evenly on both sides with salt, pepper, paprika, smoked paprika, garlic powder and honey Cajun rub.

Take a cast iron skillet and heat to medium add 1 tsp of clarified butter and 1 tsp olive oil. Sear pork steaks on each side for about 6 minutes per side.

Place pork steaks in a preheated 350 degree oven and cook for 15 minutes. Remove and let rest in the pan for 5 minutes

While pork steaks are cooking, place pomegranate juice in a saute pan over medium high heat. Allow to come to a boil and let cook 3 minutes. Take corn starch and water and mix together to make a slurry and put in pomegranate juice. Allow to cook another 5 minutes or until the sauce reduces to about half. Add balsamic vinegar and remove from heat.

Plate juice on the plate or over the top of pork steaks. Enjoy!
