Directions:
Cut pork steak in small pieces off the bone, brown in a Dutch oven with the bone, soy sauce and molasses. Cover meat with water and simmer for 10 minutes. Add the onions and celery and continue to simmer until tender, approximately another 10 minutes. Add Chinese vegetables and mushrooms. Salt and pepper to taste. Remove the bone prior to serving and serve over rice. To thicken, use a water and flour paste. Clarice used to say, to make a gravy with flour and water, put in a container with a secure lid and "shake the hell out of it!"

Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
Bread molasses is a type of molasses that is often used in coloring and flavoring Asian dishes. You should be able to find it in the Asian section of larger supermarkets. Because it is similar to light molasses, you could substitute an equal amount of that. Avoid using a dark or blackstrap molasses, however, as these have a much stronger and more bitter flavor.
