Pre-cut pork steaks are probably a rarity anywhere outside of middle USA, but I'm sure most butchers will slice a butt if asked.That brings back memories from when I was a kid growing up in Detroit. Pork steaks were a weekly dinner for a blue collar family. I always loved them pan fried and crispy!
Haven’t seen them in the market for years. I guess I live in too good a neighborhood now.
I thought the same thing yesterday! Theirs are usually available in several different marinades, or chopped with veggies, ready to fry, or plain. I <3 the Mexican Markets, I think about visiting them more often than I do.I see them more often in latino or ethnic markets. If butts are on sale they usually have a bunch sliced, or to order.
Just to support that, my neighborhood market here in Utah stocks packaged pork steaks, so they can't be that rare.Guess the writer has never been to St Louis, the pork steak capital.
He acts like it's a new discovery.
This statement sure isn't true around here:
"You probably won't find pork shoulder steaks packaged and ready to go at your local market."
