Moroccan-Style Pork Steaks

1 medium onion, chopped ($.10)
1 tsp. black pepper ($.05)
1 tsp. season salt ($.05)
2 tsp. granulated garlic ($.05)
1 tsp. cinnamon ($.05)
1/2 tsp. paprika ($.05)
1/4 tsp. cardamom ($.05)
1/2 tsp. cumin ($.05)
1/4 C. chopped cilantro ($.10)
4 pork steaks ($2.44)
3 T. olive oil ($.20)

Mix all seasonings together.

Drizzle pork steaks with olive oil, then toss with seasonings and onion. Let marinade overnight.

Pan sear the pork steaks in a nonstick pan over medium-high heat, about 5-7 minutes per side.

Serve alongside eggs and homefries for breakfast, cut off the bone and serve on whole wheat toast with red onion, lettuce, and tomato for a killer sandwich, or serve along with potatoes, salad, and caramelized onions for an amazing dinner.

  1. Wow - all ingredients I have on hand, I plan to try this with pork chops this week. Sounds so yummy.

  2. This seems yummy and very straightforward. I wonder, since I love chicken, how this recipe would translate? I think I'll give it a try.
