Pork steak for the skillet


Pork is a good and cheaper substitute for expensive beef, but can tend to be tough.  This recipe has the steaks going into the oven for the finish, which will tenderize the meat.

Cooking method

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Season steaks with salt, pepper and Cajun seasoning.

Over high heat, heat a cast iron skillet with half of the oil.  Lower heat to medium-high, place steaks in skillet and brown on both sides.

Remove from skillet, add remaining oil, add all vegetables and cook until lightly browned and slightly wilted.

Pour in the wine to deglaze pan and make sure you scrape the bottom of skillet to loosen all browned particles.  Simmer for 3 minutes, then return steaks to pan.

Add chicken broth (enough liquid to almost cover the steaks).

Remove from heat and cover skillet with tight fitting lid and place in oven.  Cook for 40 minutes at 350 degrees F.
