Pork Steaks with a Simple Sauce

Here's a simple meal to toss together and then place in the oven to bake. Come back 15-20 minutes before dinner time to wisk up the sauce and wahla...a tasty dish with lots of flavor.

Pork Steaks with a Simple Sauce

4 pork cubed steaks or chops
salt and pepper
2 small onions, sliced in rings
1 tsp. butter
1 1/2 cups beef broth

Sauce:
1 cup beef broth
6 tbsp. ketchup
1 tbsp. brown sugar

Heat skillet and spray good with cooking spray.
Place pork steaks in skillet, season with salt and pepper.
Brown on both sides and then remove to a greased baking dish.
In same skillet, saute onion in butter until tender.
Place onions on top of pork steaks.
Pour 1 1/2 cups broth over pork and bake uncovered at 375 degrees until done.
Prepare sauce about 10-15 minutes before ready to serve.
Sauce:
In a small saucepan, combine sauce ingredients.
Simmer uncovered 10-15 minutes as it reduces down.
Pour over pork steaks and ENJOY!

I still am not really in the mood to cook.
My days are spent schooling and keeping up on household chores. Any free time that I have I want to spend working on  my quilt blocks ~ which I'll show you more of tomorrow.
I did manage to get 2 big trays of cabbage rolls made yesterday. We had dinner at my parents' house as we celebrated my Dad's birthday. His actual birthday is not until tomorrow but last night was the night that we could all get together. Besides, Dad says that it's not just his birthday...it's his birth week.
Gonna be a long week!
Not much else going on around here. It's been a rainy, muddy mess here for the past week. We got lucky and dodged the big snowstorms.
Though it is snowing as I type this!
Not supposed to get much more than an inch but it may get icy since the roads are wet already from the rain.

I'm getting spring fever as I can't wait to get back outdoors. I'm ready to start walking again but need to wait for better weather. 
Which brings me to this!
Look at these shoes that I picked up over the weekend.
My favorite is a Nike running shoe so that is what I went in search of. I was so surprised. They are so bright and colorful now a days. TOO BRIGHT! ( This pic doesn't even compare to what they actually look like.)
I had to come home and change the shoestrings because they were yellow too!
My kids call them the banana shoes.
I'm sure they are trying to appeal to teenagers with all those wild colors but come on....there are some of us older people that would like a good shoe without all that bling ~ if that's what you want to call it.

Well, since I can't get outdoors to walk I guess I will head to the treadmill before it's bedtime. Something I should be doing daily but doesn't happen very often!

Have a great evening!

That looks like a good meal for cold days:) I like your banana shoes, LOL, I have wide feet and when I used to work I would buy the "skate" type sneakers like my son wore because they were COMFY, and I seemed to be in style, HAHA!!!!

The food looks great! You have more energy than me if you are walking on the tread mill. Your yellow shoes are great.....maybe the color is giving you energy..lol. Blessings!

How funny-you are so right about the shoe colors. I guess they think us non-teens may need to have flashy shoes out there walking around and running in case we fall or something so we could have shoes like beacons :) LOL
Love friend onions-looks like another yummy meal!
