Cook Pork Steak
Edited by sheryl hernandez, Rebecca M., Eng
A pork steak is generally cut from the shoulder region of the pig, but it can also be taken from the loin or leg. A shoulder steak is taken from the same basic cut that is typically used in pulled pork. This particular portion has a higher concentration of collagen present and usually requires a longer cooking time or the use of marinades to tenderize it. For this reason, they are often used in dishes that are braised or simmered. Though it may take a bit longer to cook, a pork steak can't be beat for overall flavor content.
