  • 6 pork steaks
  • 2 fresh jalapenos chillies
  • ½ white onion
  • ½ cup fresh coriander

Season the pork steaks and then heat the oil in a dutch-oven casserole dish. Fry them one by one on each side for 1 min to brown the meat. Then place them back on to the dish and add the water, onion and jalapenos. Cook for 30 minutes on low heat, making sure they do not run out of liquid.
