This delicious Baked Pork with Apples and Onions requires no breading or frying. Simple to prepare and healthy, it’s my new favorite way to cook pork steaks!
I have recently been trying to avoid gluten when I can. I am not exactly gluten intolerant. But I have noticed that when I eat too much of it, my ankles and feet swell.
So when I had some beautiful pork steaks to cook, I decided to try something a little different. I’m glad I did! This Baked Pork with Apples and Onions was a big hit. Served up with a side of Cheesy Potato Bacon Casserole and Brussel Sprouts with Bacon and Onion, the whole dinner was absolutely delicious!
Baked Pork With Apples and Onions
I started off by slicing up some apples. I personally used two Fuji apples, but I’m sure any sweet apple would work just fine. I made the slices thin, and couldn’t stop myself from munching a few slices as I worked.
Next, I sliced up a big Vidalia Onion in the same way.
I lined a 9 X 13 baking pan with foil and scattered some slices of butter around the bottom . . .
. . . followed by a layer of apples and onions.
I laid the pork steaks out on top of the apples, onions, and butter . . .
. . . and covered the pork steaks with more apple and onion slices, plus salt and pepper. However, if you feel like salt and pepper is a little too boring for you, feel free to kick it up a notch to suit your own seasoning preferences.
I covered the pan with foil and baked in the oven at 350 degrees F until the meat was fall-apart tender – two to three hours.
The Baked Pork with Apples and Onions was amazing. Tender and juicy, with just a touch of sweetness, my honey and I were very happy with the meal. Even my youngest came back for seconds!
