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.
Cover a 9-inch-by-13-inch pan with foil, and preheat your oven to 177 degrees Celsius. Lay four pork steaks down on the pan.
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.
Seal the steaks with foil.
Cook the steaks in the oven for about one hour or until they are tender and cooked through.
Experiment with other spices for your oven-baked pork steaks. Pork steaks can also be grilled or cooked on the hob.
Use oven gloves when handling hot pans and baking trays.
