Smothered Pork

I went to Schnuck's a couple of weeks ago when they had their pork shoulder roast for $.89/lb. I bought a roast to make Shredded BBQ Pork. Then I saw they had pork steaks for $.89/lb also. When meat is $.89/lb I have a really hard time passing it up. So I bought a package of those as well. When I got home I really didn't know what to do with them. I have never had pork steaks any other way but bar-b-qued on the grill. Since it is the middle of winter that's not happening obviously. Well except if you're my father-in-law. He doesn't care what it's like outside. He BBQs in the snow. But anyway. I have tried breading them before like I do pork chops or pork loin but that just doesn't work. All of the breading falls off and it's just no good. So I looked in my cabinet and I had a can of cream of mushroom soup and some cheese in the fridge. So I came up with this.

Smothered Pork

2-3 Pork steaks(2 is more than enough for our family of 3)
1 can cream of mushroom soup
1 "can" of milk(fill the cream of mushroom soup can after you empty the soup out)
garlic powder(to taste)
pepper(to taste)
cheddar cheese for topping

put the pork steaks in an oven safe dish. If you have one with a lid that works best but if not you're going to have to be able to cover it with aluminum foil.
Prepare mix the cream of mushroom soup and milk together in a bowl. Add some garlic powder and pepper if you'd like. Pour it over the pork.
Cover it(it MUST be covered) and stick it in the oven for about an hour and a half or so. I didn't really time it. I just made sure it looked done.

Put the pork on a plate, pour some of the soup left in the pan over each piece of pork and top with cheese. If you really want to add the extra calories you could probably top it with bacon but I haven't tried that yet.

Sorry I don't have any pictures. I went to Frick's this week because their pork steaks were $.99/lb and bought more. I made it for dinner last night and intended to take pictures but I didn't cover it and it turned out kinda dry and didn't taste as good. So be sure if you make it that it is covered.

Milk Milk Milk Milk, just kidding :) No really I was going to say I bet you could use evap milk for this recipe, I am always looking for ways to use that. Its good and makes stuff creamy. Just saying. Thanks for sharing.

I actually did use it the second time I made it when I screwed up and forgot to cover it and it was all dry so I couldn't really tell you how it tastes. But it's probably good.
