When it comes to pork, a favorite cut is the pork chop. It’s got a fatty layer in an otherwise lean cut of pork, which is what you want to ensure it stays moist as it cooks. Plus, it’s usually a bone-in cut which means you have the meaty flavor that comes with cooking meat on the bone. Plus, it’s a fast and easy cut to cook any time of the day!
But there’s another pork cut that’s doesn’t get noticed as much: the pork steak cut. It’s a cut that’s taken from shoulder (kasim) and when you take a look at it, the shoulder blade bone runs through the center of it intact. And because it’s got a bone running through it, it’s just as flavorful as your pork chop but usually comes without the thick fatty outer layer. What it does have is slivers of fat running through it, and it’s this that keeps it flavorful while preventing it from drying out as you cook it.
Plus, it’s as versatile as the pork chop! You can cook it like you would a pork chop and still end up with a meal that’s fast and easy to cook with all the flavors you like. Here are five delicious pork steak recipes to try:
