A simple pork steak is an easy meal to prepare. Cooking in a single pan, it can be quickly and easily prepared. To add flavor, you can season it with salt, pepper, garlic powder, and Dijon mustard. It will melt quickly, so you will need to apply it liberally. You can serve this meal with a side dish of mashed potatoes. It tastes great topped with a sauce of brown onion and chopped parsley.
To make a pork steak, begin by seasoning the meat with salt and pepper. Then, add some olive oil and butter to the pan. Once the oil has heated, add the chopped garlic, onions, and mushrooms. Stir the mixture until the onions have softened. Then, add chicken stock and reduce it to a simmer. Once the sauce has reduced, stir in the cream, and add the pork steak. Allow the pork to rest for five minutes before serving.
Start by heating the oil. Ensure that the oil is very hot. Once hot, add the pork and cook it in batches. After completing the first batch, flip the meat and cook for another three to four minutes. Remove and set aside. Finish by reheating the meat in the oven. For best results, you should marinate the pork for at least 30 minutes or a couple of hours. Otherwise, it will be too salty or too mushy.
Now, you’re ready to prepare the sauce. Just sprinkle the meat with 1/4 tsp of salt and pepper. Now, you can fry the pork steaks on both sides. Thicker steaks cook faster. Then, add 1 tbsp of oil to the pan. Saute onions and mushrooms for 5 minutes. Then, add 2 tsp flour to the mixture and stir well. Finally, pour in the 360 ml (1/2 cups) of beef stock and let it simmer.
If you’re serving the pork steak to your guests, you can use a marinade that compliments the meat. It can also be used for pork chops, tenderloin, or even pork steaks. Combine the marinade ingredients well before cooking the pork. You can then remove the steaks and serve them with mashed potatoes, vegetables, or grilled vegetables. Remember to allow enough time for the meat to rest.
If you’re grilling the pork steak, you should first preheat a large cast-iron skillet until it’s hot. Once the pan is hot, place the steaks in the pan and cook until they reach 145 F. If they’re thinner than an inch, you can use the meat mallet to squeeze out the meat from the shoulder blade bone. When a pork steak is grilled, it will naturally become tender and will not dry out like leaner pork chops. After the pork is cooked, you can preheat the skillet and add the sauce.
