Simple Pork Loin Steak with Onion filled Pierogi

Price per serving for two: $3.28

You will need to buy pork loin center cut, no bone. About an inch cut makes a nice thick steak. I found a pair at the local grocer for $3.77 and a box of frozen pierogi with onion for$ 2.79, leave them out to thaw.

Take from the pantry list:
Coconut Oil
Olive Oil
Sea Salt
Garlic Powder
Onion Powder
Red Pepper flakes
Ground Black Pepper
Dried Herb Seasoning
*rosemary, mint and oregano

In a skillet, melt 3 tbs of coconut oil and the same of olive oil. Season your pork loin steaks using the above seasonings to taste. I like flavor as does my husband so aside of the salt and peppers, I can be quite generous. I understand that some of you may not like strong flavor and or are abiding by doctor's orders.

Once the oils are hot, lay in your steaks and let the sizzling begin. Cover after 2 min, letting the steaks cook on a med flame while you take a med.sized
stock pot and fill with water to boil the pierogi in. Salt the water.  Once the water boils, add the pierogi and stir. Now, give your attention back to the steaks. Uncover and turn over, then cover again. Stir the pierogi. In these next few minutes, set the table. If you like, you can put out homemade applesauce or cut some fresh and place on a few leaves of your favorite greens.  About 12 min. should have passed and all will be quite ready to serve. Turn off the flame under both the steaks and pierogi. Drain the pierogi and ladle into a large serving dish, add a few pats of butter. Take another serving dish/platter for the steaks. Place them on the platter and pour out any remaining juices over the top of the steaks.

*This plate could easily satisfy my husband. If the kids were still at home, I would be able to cut my portion of the same size in three.
