How to cook pork steak
Pork steak is another soy sauce-based dish with citrus flavor kicks. There are claims that this dish was a influence of the western countries to the Filipinos. As far as my research is concerned, steak are cooked through grills and glazed with barbecue sauce.
This recipe of mine is taught to me by my mom when I was in high school and as the years go by, I added my own style. Now, I want my steak with lesser sauce and smothered with lots of onions.
Here are the ingredients to cook pork steak:
- 1 kilo of pork chop
- 1/2 cup soy sauce
- 1/2 cup water
- 2 spoon sugar
- Juice of 12 pieces of Calamansi
- 3 cloves of garlic , finely minced
- 1 big onion, one side chop only (rings)
- oil (for frying)
- Fry first the pork chops, position them on the pan where the fat part will be cooked well. I do it vertically where the fat is at the bottom, then will fry the whole meat. Avoid over cooking the meat.
- In a separate pan, saute garlic, let it toast and 4-5 pieces of sliced onions.
- Add the pork chops and let it simmer.
- Add soy sauce, calamansi juice, sugar, water and let it boil for about 15 minutes.
- Add pepper and stir. Boil until the sauce thickens.
- Pop it with more onions and turn the oven into very low fire, just let the steam of the pork steak. Onions will become sweeter when mildly cooked.
- Serve while hot.
What do I like about this dish is that the sour taste of the citrus compliments well with the sugar and soy sauce. There is this citric flavor kicks that you can taste while biting the meat and keeps me digging for more. I also love this one with mildly cooked onions.
