Table for Two - Pork Cube Steaks with Peppers and Tomatoes

From the kitchen of One Perfect Bite...This simple and delicious main course, which can be on the table in about 30 minutes, is perfect for two people. Most large grocery chains now carry pork cube steaks and they make a wonderful addition to the shopping carts of those who cook for small families. The steaks cook quickly, and because they are usually sold in quantities limited to two or three steaks per package, there is no need to be concerned with over-buying. Tonight's recipe is simple and easy to follow. I think those of you who are looking for recipes scaled to feed two or three people will love pork prepared in this manner. It makes a great and satisfying dinner entree that is perfect for the cooler days ahead. I like to serve the steaks with a brown rice pilaf and steamed green beans or carrots. I do hope you'll give this recipe a try. I think you'll be pleased with the results. Here is how the steaks are made.

My collection of Table for Two Recipes will be moved to a tab beneath the blog header this afternoon.

Pork Cube Steaks with Peppers and Tomatoes...from the kitchen of One Perfect Bite

3 pork cube steaks
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon coarse garlic salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
2 teaspoons butter
2 teaspoon vegetable oil
1/3 cup condensed chicken broth, undiluted
1/3 cup white vermouth or dry white wine
1/4 cup diced sweet yellow pepper
1/4 cup diced tomato
1 tablespoon minced fresh cilantro

1) Season cube steaks with salt and pepper. Dredge in flour, gently shaking off excess.
2) Heat butter and oil in a large skillet. When butter has melted and the butter and oil combinations shimmers, add pork cube steaks and brown both sides. Stir in broth, vermouth and add yellow peppers to pan. Bring to a boil and cook for about 5 minutes or until liquid is reduced by half. Stir in tomatoes and cilantro and heat though. Serve immediately. Yield: 2 servings.

I just want to say that I've lived alone the last 18 years and was feeling somewhat frustrated with cooking for myself with recipes for 4-6, so I'm happy to find the "Table for Two" recipes.Your blog is the best and now that I've signed up for the email version, I read it daily. I've put the pork cube steaks on my grocery list and will try that recipe this week. Thanks so much!
