The oven should be preheated to 350ºF. I put the marinated pork in a zip lock bag for about a half an hour. From there it went into my dutch oven. Side Note: this is the last of my wedding gifts that hadn't yet been used! With the pork I added some frozen veggies and a quarter cup of white cooking wine; I put the lid on and let it roast for an hour and 45 minutes. It came out looking and smelling amazing!

This recipe called for green onions, garlic, soy sauce and butter. I didn't have green onions so I just used half a medium sized onion, diced. I also mixed my soy sauce with some Worcestershire sauce. I seasoned the pork steaks with salt, pepper and garlic powder and then sprinkled flour on both sides. Saute the onions and garlic in the soy sauce and butter until brown; then add the pork steaks. Cook them on both sides for eight to ten minutes each, covered. Remove the lid and cook an additional ten minutes (the time needed to cook the steaks is also the perfect amount of time to have potatoes boiling for mashed potatoes.) Once the steaks were finished I removed them from the pan and added 2 tbsp of flour. Scrap the bottom of the pan until the flour is well mixed. In a separate cup I mixed a half cup of milk with a half cup of beef broth and a teaspoon of pepper; this mixture is then slowly added to the pan, stirring while pouring. You only need to simmer this mixture for about three minutes. It will get thick quickly. I like chunky gravy so I didn't strain it before use. It's perfect on the potatoes and steak. Next time I won't use any salt to season the steaks as the soy sauce has plenty but otherwise this was delicious!
