Simple Pork Steak

Our grocer recently ran a special on pork steaks for 88 cents a pound. Combine that with a new recipe I ran across and we ended up with a very good, rather different meal. I had to make a couple of variations for our tastes, but the recipe is adaptable and Beloved Husband said this simple recipe was a keeper.  We'll be fixing it again, soon!

Ingredients:

3 tablespoons margerine
3 tablespoons soy sauce
Small bunch of green onions, chopped (I got to use Texas 1015's out of our garden!!)
2 minced garlic cloves (I keep jars of minced garlic in the fridge)
4 pork steaks
Couple of teaspoons of flour
Water, keep a measuring cup on hand and add as needed

Directions:

Place the pork in a large baggie, add the flour and dredge.  Just a little bit helps to make good gravy.  Add no other seasonings first time around, just to see if you'll like this as is.  After that, make it personalized with your favorites.

Melt the butter in a large skillet over medium heat, then add the soy sauce. Add the green onions and garlic, allowing them to soften well.

Add the pork, cook about eight minutes, then turn and cook about the same time on the other side. Add enough water to cover the bottom of the pan, not letting them become dry. They will look very brown due to the soy sauce, but they are not done yet.

Lower the heat a bit, be certain there's enough liquid to cover the bottom of the pan well -- if not, add a bit of water -- cover and simmer another ten minutes, checking and adding water if necessary for sauce.

They come out soooo tender and tastey! Serve with either rice or noodles and the side vegetable of your choice.
