Pan Fried Pork Steaks

Food 2013 098

Things are finally starting to slow down here.  School will start a month from today.  Boo!

I love having my kids home for the summer.  This is the first time they have had 12 weeks off for summer vacation.  Usually we get about 7-8 but since we moved and the school year here is shorter I am LOVING it!  We have spent a ton of time at the beach, the libraries and as usual dance.

So, I am constantly looking for new recipes to try on Pinterest that are quick, easy or use my slow cooker.  The less fussy the preparation the happier I am right now.  Don’t get me wrong I love to cook, but, right now I want to spend my time doing other things.  There will be plenty of time this winter for recipes with intricate steps and long cooking times.

I had some leftover Pork Steak in the freezer from last month and wanted to use them up so I started searching for a quick, easy recipe.   I found this recipe for Pork Steaks at


  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1/2 cup soy sauce
  • 4 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 6 pork steaks


  1. Melt butter in a skillet, and mix in the soy sauce. Saute the green onions and garlic until lightly browned.
  2. Place the pork steaks in the skillet, cover, and cook 8 to 10 minutes on each side, Remove cover, and continue cooking 10 minutes, or to an internal temperature of 145 degrees F (63 degrees C).
  3. Remove pork steaks to a plate and tent with aluminum foil to rest for 5 minutes.
  4. While steaks are resting raise heat in skillet to medium high.  Stir sauce continually bringing up brown bits on bottom of the pan.  Once sauce has reduced serve over pork steaks.  I also served it over rice.
