You know my favorite way to eat pork steaks. I can't remember cooking them another way since I came across St Louis BBQ pork steaks.

Chili relleno casserole, topped w/ salsa and sour cream and a green salad here.

The last time I made pork steaks I browned them and cooked them with sauerkraut, sauteed onions and diced apple.

I got spoiled by the dried porcini mushrooms that I bought to make CarolPa's brown soup at Christmas. I take a couple of pieces run a knife through them and toss them into sauces, meatloaf, soup etc... The dried ones are shelf stable and have a very intense mushroom flavor. I still use the white buttons, if I can find some that look slightly bedraggled and brown. I find the older ones have better flavor, sort of like the difference between a green banana and a yellow banana.

I discovered the mystery meal was shredded beef sauce for pasta. It was delicious.

Interesting. Maybe I will try the spotted ones next time. Thanks for the tip.

I used to brown pork steaks and then toss a can of Del Monte stewed tomatoes in the pan and simmer a bit. Really quite good.

I pulled soup out of the freezer. Stirling had the soup with Italian sausage and I had tomato soup made with Andy's recipe. Yum. I also had a couple of slices of Ryvita with cretons and next, I will munch on some double cream Brie.

Himself finished the corned beef and cabbage. I had the last piece of fish from yesterday along with the last dab of potato salad and a pile of freshly-steamed broccoli. Only one more leftover in the fridge, then on to making new ones on Monday!

TB picked up some pizza on the way home. We have a place that makes some not too shabby gluten free pizza in the neighbourhood so that's what we had!
