What makes a meal more special? Many will say the ingredients are a good indicator of how special the meal will be but it can also be the effort and care that went into preparing the dish.
It’s good then that this recipe for this pork steak meal meets both criteria!
What is a pork steak?
The pork steak gets its name from the fact that this pork cut is rich, flavorful, and actually has some “marbling” just like a steak made from beef.
The pork steak, also known as the blade steak or pork blade cut, is from the bonier part of the pork kasim cut (also known as the pork shoulder or pork butt). It is characterized by a sliver of bone through the fatty layers of meat and fat that look like the marbling of the steak. This can be a tougher cut of meat but since you can treat it as a steak, it can be just as tender as a pork chop or simmered and braised until tender like any other pork cut.
This makes the pork steak more delicious than the pork chop! You can even grill these steaks and the end result will be tender and juicy pork. Love barbecue? Then you’ll appreciate these pork steaks are sweet like barbecue but have a delicious and aromatic burst of citrus flavor that you will fall in love with!
