Pork steak and onions

READY IN: 1hr 20mins
Recipe by Always in the kitch

This recipe sounds like a lot of work, but it just the old fashion method of braising. The meat is so tender, and the onions, are sweet in taste. A really large electric fry pan, works the best. I sometimes add sour cream to the liquid, the last 10 minutes or so, for an even richer taste.

I took some liberties with this recipe, but I was very pleased with the outcome. I used 2 pork steaks and 2 big Maui onions. Instead of the water, I used 2 cups of homemade chicken stock, and added a handful of peeled garlic cloves and a couple of sprigs of fresh thyme. The garlic got very soft by the end of the cooking time, and at the end of cooking, I mashed it into the sauce. There was a lot of liquid left in the pan after the 1 1/2 of simmering, so I took the pork out, raised the heat to high, and let the liquid reduce until I had a rich, thick sauce. This is a definite make again! Thanks for posting!
