Murder Mystery Food-It's Time for Diner Food

Good Morning dear readers,  here is the return to murder mystery food.  It took me awhile to find one I really liked and this is it.  We are cooking from the murder mystery "Do or Diner" by Christine Wenger.  If you love comfort food your gonna love this recipe.  But before we get to cooking a little about the book.  This is my new favourite murder mystery series.  The main character inherits/buys the diner and all the trimmings from her aunt.  Some one tries to put her out of business by killing someone in the diner by poisoning the food.  So she feels the cops aren't doing enough to find the killer so she gets involved.  What I love about this story it involves history and family traditions.  The type that when you think about a certain food it reminds you of family.  Events in your families lives seem to come to life when you smell a certain food.  I'm not going to go into any more details because I don't want to spoil it for you.  The recipe for today is Pork and Scalloped Potatoes.  Here's what you need.

several pork steaks (I used a pack of  4)
3 large potatoes  sliced not to thin not to thick
2-3 large onions sliced not to thin not to thick
salt and pepper 
1 cup or more of milk depending on how thick you what the sauce
2 cans cream of  celery soup (you can also use cream of mushroom)
I added a little oregano and garlic about tablespoon each

cook pork steaks in oven until done. Let cool and then cut into bite sized pieces.  Layer into deep pot or roasting pan.  Proceed to layer potatoes and then onions.  If you have enough meat you can do another round of layers.  Season with salt and pepper and other spices.  Mix milk and soup together and pour over everything.  Put into 350 degree oven and let cook for hour to 1 1/2 hours until fork can insert into potatoes.  Bon Appetite.
