Tropical Pork Steaks Recipe, when the days get cold nothing will warm you up and bring you to a tropical paradise than these delicious pork steaks, juicy in the inside, perfectly seared and covered in a sweet tropical sauce! Yumm
Hola Amigos! When the weather turns cold I can't but to mentally transport myself to warmer places and one of the best way to do it is through food.

I got a couple of beautiful Pork Steaks at the butcher the other day and in my opinion nothing goes better with pork than the taste of the tropics and it's fruits. Passion fruit, pineapple and oranges are some of the tropical fruits used one way or another to prepare this steaks.
And if you are thinking it's too cold to light the grill. not to worry, these are baked!
Tropical Pork Steaks Recipe, a delicious recipe for a hearty dinner with a tropical flair! a very budget friendly white meat but rich in taste and easy to prepare.

They are extremely moist and tender the way they are, but you know me, I need to have some gravy with my meats! My gravy has all the flavors of the steaks and the sweetness of the fruit.

The kids love the sweet taste of the steaks and just to make it even more kid friendly, this time we just had them with some Mac n Cheese! It was a hit alright!

Tropical Pork Steaks
2.5-3 Lbs Pork Steaks
1 Cup Orange Juice
2 Envelopes Sazon  with Coriander and Tomato
2 Chipotle Bullions
Salt, Pepper, Garlic Powder to taste
2 TBSP oil for frying
1 (8 oz) can Crushed Pineapples drained (save juice)
1 Cup Passion Fruit Juice ( I used Welch) 
1 TBSP cornstarch
Prepare the pork steaks to be marinated either in a zip lock bag or a baking dish. Pour the cup of orange juice and sprinkle the Sazon and crushed chipotle bullions, salt, pepper and garlic powder and rub them with these seasonings until they are all covered, there is plenty for both sides. Put in the refrigerator and let them marinate for a couple of hours. 
When ready to cook, Pre-heat the oven at 365 degrees. 
In a large skillet, 2 tbsp oil, heat up. Place pork steaks, one at a time if they are too big, and seared and brown on both sides. Like 3-5 minutes on each side (again it will depend on the size of the steaks). Once browned place on a baking dish.
Pour the cup of passion fruit juice and the saved pineapple juice. Bake covered for 20 minutes. Remove from oven, uncovered and spread the crushed pineapple over the steaks bake for an additional 5 minutes or until pork is completely cooked, (internal temperature of 145 degrees according to the new USDA guidelines). Once time has elapsed, remove from oven and let the steaks rest.

For the gravy, mix drippings with 1 tbsp cornstarch dissolved in a little bit of orange juice and cook until thickened . Serve on top of pork steaks and enjoy.
