Spicy pork steaks with tomato and mint salad

What Speedy and I had for breakfast yesterday were the same pork steaks that went into Alex’s school lunchbox. Small pork steaks, actually, less than half an inch thick and about three inches in diameter. I packed three for Alex so there were only two left for Speedy and myself. So I decided to serve our minuscule spicy pork steaks with tomato and mint salad, and fried eggs.

But, first, let me tell you about how I cooked the spicy pork steaks and what I seasoned them with.

I bought this jar of chili garlic sauce with ginger a few weeks ago. I already knew it was great as a dipping sauce but I wondered if it could be used for cooking as well. I found out yesterday morning — and the answer is yes.

Just fresh tomatoes cut into small cubes, coarsely sliced lemon mint leaves (yes, from our garden) and a sprinkling of salt.

You’ll be amazed how fresh lemon mint leaves can perk up the flavor of tomatoes. :)
