How to Slow Cook Pork Steaks in the Oven

Things You'll Need

  • Foil

  • Pan, 9 inches by 13 inches

  • 4 Granny Smith apples, cored and diced

  • 1/2 cup brown sugar

  • 2 tsp. salt

  • 2 tsp. pepper

  • 2 tbsp. red wine vinegar

Slow-cook pork steaks in the oven to tenderize the meat.

Pork steaks are also called blade steaks, which are sliced from the shoulder blade of a pig. This cut of meat contains a significant amount of fat, which keeps it moist, but it is from an active muscle, which can make it tougher than other cuts of pork. Pork steaks are generally slow-cooked to release fat from the meat and to ensure its tenderness. By baking pork steaks in the oven, you can slow cook them until juicy and tender.

Step 1

Cover a 9-inch-by-13-inch pan with foil, and preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Lay four pork steaks down on the pan.

Step 2

Sprinkle 2 tsp. salt and 2 tsp. pepper on both sides of the pork steaks. Pour 2 tbsp. red wine vinegar evenly over the steaks. Place the four apples, cored and diced, on top of them with the 1/2 cup brown sugar.

Step 3

Seal the steaks with foil.

Step 4

Cook the steaks in the oven for about one hour or until they are tender and cooked through.

Tip

Experiment with other spices for your oven-baked pork steaks.

Pork steaks can also be grilled or cooked on the stove top.

Warning

Use oven mitts when handling hot pans and baking trays.
