Pork Steaks with Curried Peanut Sauce
Pork steaks are an economical cut from the shoulder area. Braising brings out the flavor and makes them tender. This sauce brings an exotic Asian taste to the dinner table. Serve with rice and sautéed snow peas.

1/2 cup water
2 tablespoons peanut butter
1 teaspoon instant chicken bouillon granules
Nonstick spray vegetable coating
