Cooking with Klaus – Dark Beer Marinated Pork Steaks

Ingredients for 4 people

4 nice pork steaks from the neck (Schweinenacken steaks)
4 medium sized onions, peeled and cut in half rings
1 bottle of dark German beer
1 teaspoon tomato paste
1 tablespoon margarine
1 teaspoon ground black pepper
2 teaspoons salt


Salt and pepper the steaks. Cover all the pork steaks with beer so that they are completely immersed. They need to marinate 3 days in the refrigerator. In a large skillet, melt the margarine and roast the steaks on both sides. Remove steaks and put sliced onions in pan. Slightly roast on medium heat until they have a nice brown color. Add tomato paste. Stir it until it becomes a nice brown color as well. Add half of the beer marinade. Return steaks to the pan. Let them simmer for 8-10 minutes. As sauce cooks down, add more marinade. Season with pepper and salt to suit your own taste.

Nice side dishes are roasted potatoes with thick cut onions and bacon, or a typical German Krautsalat (coleslaw). This can be purchased on the economy. Of course adding another dark beer for
your beverage will enhance the flavor of the pork steak.
