Baked Pork Steaks with Mushrooms

pork cuts
Pork steaks are one of my favorite cuts of pork. They come from the shoulder or butt part of the pig. It’s actually a shoulder roast sliced into steaks so you’ll see the same marbling that makes pork shoulder roasts so flavorful. Years ago when pork steaks were still $1.98 a pound, they were a staple at my house because they were so cheap and easy to fix. They were one of the few meats I couldn’t screw up back in the early days.

This is what I call a “low maintenance” main dish. It’s not a quick cooking dish but it’s super simple and doesn’t need any hovering or periodic checking. I start these at 300 degrees and forget about it for 2 or 3 hours. I like my pork steaks to pretty much fall apart but you can adjust the cooking time for the amount of doneness you like. This recipes makes enough gravy for up to 4 steaks. If you don’t have an oven safe skillet with a lid, you can put everything in 9×13 pan and cover tightly with foil. This is great served with rice.

      Good catch. My preference is cream of celery but you can use either.

    So I cook it in a skillet first and sear the outside then place in the oven?

    I don’t use canned soup so what could I use in place of? Canned coconut milk? I would also use fresh mushrooms instead of canned. Thanks for any ideas…this sounds super simple and delish!

    Are the pork steaks cooked in the oven covered, as in cover the pan or cover/smother with the mushrooms and onions mixture?

    I’m guessing 300 Fahrenheit not Celsius right? Can’t hurt to check

    Safeway has pork shoulder steaks on sale this week for $1.99/lb!! This is a great recipe as is, and it works well in the slow cooker too after browning the steaks. Give this a try: substitute Campbell’s Golden Mushroom soup and omit the Worcestershire. Leave everything else as is. Wonderful!

    Do I cover when putting it in the oven? It doesn’t say one or the other in the recipe.

      I usually cover it with foil so it won’t dry out. See step 6.

    NO water or milk added with the soup? I have an 45 yr old hand written recipe that calls for 3/4 milk but I don’t trust it. thx

      You’re going for more of a gravy consistency than soup. Adding too much fluid will make it runny.
