As Lake Geneva’s meat experts, our customers frequently ask us, “What are pork steaks and what do I do with them?” Good question, and we have the answer for you.
What are pork steaks?
Pork Steaks are thinly sliced steaks from the shoulder of the pig. Pork steaks are also [technically] called “pork blade steaks” (shoulder), or “Boston butts”.
We cut our Pork Steaks from the Pork Shoulder and contain the blade bone. Because we cut them from the Pork Shoulder, they are very flavorful and rich and marbling. Think about how good a Slow Cooked Pork Shoulder tastes, and that gives you an idea of what a Pork Steak will taste like after cooking.
What do I do with pork steaks?
Pork steaks are very versatile and can be cooked via sautéing, grilling or braising. Be careful not to overcook the Pork Steaks (especially since we cut them thin) or they will become dry and tough. Reach 145F, and remove from heat. The meat will be slightly pink, juicy, tender and delicious!
