Pork Steaks in Mushroom Sauce

This is one of my favorite midweek meals, as it's ridiculously quick and easy despite the pretentious name. I came up with that recipe for my own use, but it's nothing groundbreaking so I am sure someone else has thought of it before me :). Makes 2 servings. Preparation time is about 30 minutes from start to finish, and the actual work involved is about 5 min.


2 pork steaks
1/4 cup (60 ml) red wine
10 oz (280 g) mushrooms, sliced
1/4 cup chopped onion
2 teaspoons flour, or 1 teaspoon starch
Salt and pepper to taste


Season the steaks to taste. In a skillet brown each side for about 2 min.
Lower heat.
Add mushrooms and onion.
Pour in red wine. In my skillet it reaches up to about the middle of the steaks. That's about the right amount of liquid - it shouldn't cover the steaks.
Cover and simmer, stirring occasionally for about 20 min, or until steaks are done.
Transfer steaks to a plate. Leave liquid and mushrooms in skillet.
Add flour or starch to sauce.
Increase heat and cook sauce, stirring continuously for about 2 min or until thickened.
Remove sauce from heat. Season with a pinch (or more :) of salt and pepper.
Pour over steaks.

I just wanted to say that tonight I made this and it was so good. Jason and I don't have the kids tonight so I thought what better chance to try out this recipe, which I had seen last night and my mouth started watering.
Jason loved it because I very rarely cook with wine, I prefer to just drink it lol.
I took some pics but am not sure how to get them to show.
