Description

Choose almost-ripe, but still-firm pears for this braised skillet dish. Serve pan sauce with steaks, accompanied with red cabbage slaw and buttered rye bread.

Ingredients

  • 4 blade pork steaks (about 1-inch thick)
  • 1 red onion (diced)
  • 2 pears (firm-ripe, cored, peeled and each sliced into 8 wedges)
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 1 cup dry red wine
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1 teaspoon thyme
  • 2 tablespoons mustard (country-style)
  • 2 tablespoons butter

Directions

  1. Season pork steaks with salt and pepper. In large heavy skillet heat oil over medium-high heat; brown pork steaks on both sides, about 3-4 minutes per side. Remove and keep warm.
  2. Add onions to pan and sauté, stirring, until tender, 5-6 minutes. Add pears, sauté, stirring frequently, until browned, about 4-5 minutes. Add broth and wine and bring to a simmer, stirring to remove brown bits from bottom of pan. Return pork to pan, add cinnamon, bay leaf and thyme. Reduce heat to low, simmer, partly covered, for 20 minutes, until pears are tender and until internal temperature on a thermometer reads 160 degrees for the pork steaks. Remove steaks, pear and onion to platter; skim any fat from surface of liquid in pan. Increase heat and cook liquid to reduce, stirring occasionally, until it begins to thicken; whisk in mustard, then whisk in butter, a little at a time. Top pork with sauce.
