Pork Steak

PORK STEAK- it is dish that are often stewed or simmered in marinade sauce during cooking. It is a variation of Bistek Tagalog. The procedure and some ingredients are almost the same, the meat is the only the difference of the two.

Although I used pork chops in this dish, you can use cut from the loin, leg or shoulder or any part of the pig if you desire as long as they are sliced thinly and properly.
