A common method for preparing a cubed pork steak is to coat it in a mixture made from flour, egg and milk. The steak is then fried in oil and served with a gravy made from milk, butter, flour and various seasonings, such as salt and pepper.
The purpose of cubing the steak before cooking is to tenderize it, make it softer and allow it to absorb seasonings more easily. A variety of seasonings can be used when cooking a pork steak, such as rosemary, paprika, lemon zest, garlic powder or onion powder. Use the seasonings lightly and massage them into to the meat so they soak in. Marinades, using a blend of seasonings with lemon juice, orange juice or Worcestershire sauce, can also add a rich flavor to the meat.
Preheat the skillet and the oil to ensure the juices from the meat caramelize when cooking. For a healthier version of pork steak, use a cast iron skillet without oil, or only one teaspoon of vegetable oil. Pork must be cooked to an internal temperature of 145 degrees Fahrenheit or until it's no longer pink in the center. Healthful sauce alternatives can be made with low-sodium stock broth or wine and some of the pan seasonings from the meat. Traditional side dishes include mashed potatoes and a vegetable, such as broccoli, squash or sweet potatoes.
