  1. Heat 1 tbsp oil in a lidded pan and cook the leeks for 10 mins, covered, over a medium heat until soft. Set aside half the leeks in a dish andthe remaining leeks, cook for 2 mins, then slowly pour in the cider, stirring, until combined. Add the cheese and mustard and gently heat, stirring, until melted. The mixture can easily catch at this stage, so be careful.
  2. Preheat the grill to medium-high. Heat the remaining oil in a frying pan over a high heat and cook the pork steaks for 2-3 mins each side until golden and cooked through. Top with the leek rarebit, then grill for 2-3 mins until golden. Serve with the reserved leeks, and mashed potato and Tenderstem broccoli, if you like.
