This has been a family favorite for years, it's an easy recipe that may also be made in an electric skillet instead of the oven, I have made this using cubed pork in place of the pork steaks/chops, and you can also make this using chicken pieces, see Kittencal's Asian-Glazed Baked Chicken the pork steaks can be browned in a skillet first if desired for extra flavor, use only low-sodium soy sauce for this, serve with cooked rice
- 6 pork steaks (or use 6-8 center-cut pork chops about 3/4-1-inch thick)
- black pepper (to taste)
- 1⁄2 cup brown sugar
- 1 tablespoon cornstarch
- 1 teaspoon ginger
- 1⁄4 cup ketchup
- 1⁄4 cup Heinz Chili Sauce (use mild chili sauce)
- 1 -2 tablespoon fresh minced garlic (or to taste)
- 3⁄4 cup low sodium soy sauce (use only low-sodium soy sauce)
- cooked rice
- Set oven to 325 degrees F.
- Grease a 13 x 9-inch baking dish.
- Season both sides of the pork steaks or chops with a small amount of black pepper, then place in the baking dish.
- In a bowl stir together brown sugar with cornstarch and ginger, ketchup, chili sauce, garlic and soy sauce.
- Pour the mixture over the pork; toss with hands to make certain that the pork is coated with sauce.
- Cover with foil and bake for 1-1/2 hours or until pork is tender (pork chops may need a little less time to bake).
- Serve with cooked rice.
Very good recipe. The sauce was great, but I found the meat didn't absorb the flavor. I think the pork would benefit from marinating in the sauce for at least 24 hours prior to cooking.
Yet another fantastic recipe! My family devoured these chops in a heartbeat. When I made them, I marinated them in the sauce for 3 hours beforehand and then threw them on the grill instead of baking them. We used a little bit of the sauce that I saved to brush on the pork as it was cooking and they turned out about as perfect as pork chops can get! Thank you for the recipe. This is going in the keeper file.
This recipe is simply amazing! I made it tonight for dinner, using 2 lbs of pork steaks, and it was so delicious there was nothing left! I did not change the recipe. I did sear the steaks in a little vegetable oil before I placed the dish in the oven. The meat was so tender it just fell off the bone, and the sauce was too good for words! I will make this over and over, and will always use pork steaks!
