Oven pork steaks with a tasty satay sauce – an easy weeknight meal with an oriental twist.
Pork chops and steaks are so convenient – just take them out of the packet, whack them under the grill and you’re away. I’m rarely satisfied with the result though, as when grilled or fried they can be so tough. Oven pork steaks with a sauce, however, could be cut with our toddler’s plastic spoons. Mmmm!
This meal had all the flavour of a chinese style stir fry – but much less hassle. I was able to make a cake for pudding while it was cooking. For a super easy dinner sling some chips in the oven with them.
I don’t know whether satay is traditionally made with peanut butter – somehow I doubt it – but we always have some in as our toddler eats the stuff like it’s going out of fashion. If you want you can add more soy sauce – I kept it to a minimum so the small one doesn’t get too much salt.
So there you are – child friendly but with a touch of class. What more could you want?

- 1 desertspoon cornflour
- 1/3 tsp cayenne pepper or ground chilli

- First, brown the steaks on both sides. Mine were in the frying pan for a good 5-10 minutes while I found the sauce ingredients.
- brown steaks on both sides (mine were in for quite a few mins)
- In a measuring jug, mix the peanut butter cornflour, chilli and soy sauce to a paste. Then add freshly boiled water to make the sauce up to 300ml.
- Place the steaks in a casserole dish and pour the sauce over them.
- Cook them for 30 minutes. By this point, they were meltingly tender.
- We served them with rice and steamed veg to keep the oriental feel.
