How about some pork steaks for lunch? These awesome pork steaks are actually pork chops, brined in lime juice and soy sauce and sauteed with a load of onions.
This delicious recipe is very common in Philippines. Stewed with onions, the pork chops in it are bursting with flavors. Served over steamed rice it’s absolutely delicious.
The remaining marinade consisting of meat juices, soy sauce and lime, is poured into the pan and the meat is sauteed in it. It’s a great way to tenderize the meat and the result is simply mouth-watering.
I would recommend using boneless pork chops for this recipe. Usually, bone-in pork chops are juicier when they are fried, but since this recipe make the pork juicy enough with all the stewing, you don’t have to worry about that and can go for boneless.
If you wish, you can add a bit of sugar to balance out the taste, because lime and soy sauce have plenty of acids. But this step is not necessary.
Don’t throw away the juice the pork chops stew in! It makes for a perfect gravy for the rice, if you’re into thinner, watery, but very flavory type of gravies.
I also tried serving it over pasta and it went pretty well. I wouldn’t recommend serving with mashed potatoes though, because the gravy, although delicious, makes the mash too watery texture-wise.
I hope you have fun with this recipe!
