Pork With That Good Ole' Bacon Flavor

2 lbs pork shoulder cut into 1 inch steaks, trim fat where needed then cut pocket into each steak

1/2 cup soy sauce
1/2 cup apple cider vinegar
1/4 cup maple syrup
1/4 cup dark beer
2 Tbsps ketchup
5 cloves minced garlic
1 finely minced white onion
1 heavy pinch of black pepper

Mix marinade well and put in plastic sealable bag, then insert pork for
24 hours minimum

2 green apples minced
2 leeks finely chopped
3/4 pound Canadian bacon or pancetta
1 teaspoon black pepper
2 tablespoons peanut or canola oil
1/4 cup calvados (optional)

1. Heat oil in large sauté pan over medium heat (pan needs cover - if one not available use a piece of aluminum foil

2. After 30 seconds add bacon, cook for two minutes constantly stirring, then add apples and leeks. For an added zing add 1/4 cup calvados (Calvavdos was not in my 1978 recipe but I have since added it. Turn
heat to low medium. 

3. Cook for about 20-30 minutes until the mixture is a mush -- let cool.

4. Remove pork from marinade and carefully stuff in much - about 2 tablespoons per steak. More if you can get it in. Seal with toothpicks.

5. heat charcoal or gas grill to low medium heat and cook 10 minutes on one side, carefully with tongs flip to other side for 15 minutes, flip again for 5 more minutes and finish with last flip for 5 minutes
