The humble pork steak - one of my favorite cuts. These steaks come from the front leg of the hog, below the shoulders immediately below the boston butt roasts (yes, the butts are cut from the shoulder...) This thrifty cut of meat is very high in flavor. We often grill them over low heat in the summer for a quick, filling meal - nothing beats a grilled pork steak after a long day of stacking hay ya'll!
The pork steak is a cut that benefits from slow braising or soaking in a marinade that will help tenderize before throwing on the grill or searing in the skillet. This cut excels for winter-time cozy stews too, just cut the meat off the bone for stew meat
