Simple as it may sound, cooking for two is hard.

You have to scale down all ingredients to portions that can be shared by two, and most of the time you end up over seasoning the dish or you have too much leftovers.

For me, pork steak is one of the easiest things to cook for two.

Here's my tried and tested recipe.

2 pcs. pork chops (Skin off)
3 tablespoons cooking oil
Juice from 1/2 lime (or 5 large calamansi)
5 to 6 tablespoons light soy sauce
½ cup pork broth (or plain water)
1 onion, peeled and sliced into rings
A dash of honey (or brown sugar)
Salt and pepper to taste
Heat the oil in a pan big enough for the two pork chop slices.
In high heat, brown both sides of the pork chop for 3 minutes (or more, if it's a really thick cut.)

I like the chops with big bits of fat on it as it helps keep the meat moist.
Pour-in soy sauce, lemon juice and a dash of honey. Add the broth. Once it boils, turn down the heat to medium and let it simmer for about 30 minutes or until the pork becomes more tender. Add in small amounts of broth or water as needed.

Add the onion rings and cook for about 5-7 minutes more. 

You can choose to remove the oil before serving. But if you're Pinoy, you'd probably like to put the oil and soy on your rice.

Serve hot.
