Pork Steaks or Pork Chops? Don't Get Murdered; Get the Facts

Pork steaks come from the pig's shoulder
A pork steak is cut from the pig's shoulder (which is also confusingly known as a "pork butt," because it apparently used to be shipped in barrels called "butts"). In a cow, the analogous cut would be chuck roast.

A pork chop, however, is cut from the back loin. In a cow, the analogous cut would be T-bone.

"People tend to overcook pork," LeGrand says. But pork steaks contain more fat and take longer, so they tend to turn out better for most folks (because people accidentally cook them correctly).

So whether you're grilling or arguing with a family member, the concept is the same: Do not overheat.

I keep a poster of the cut of meat you can get from each type of animal, on my wall   It cut down on murders in my home by 63%.

@Fl4meFeRn0 @ACracknell79 @NormSanders Don't insult my culinary intelligence with a nonsense response like that. They are pork steaks.

So he killed someone because they disagreed on what to call a cut of pork? wow.

 

Being from NY I had never seen or heard of pork steaks until I moved out here. In NY I'd only eaten pork chops.

@Misnoper bwahahahaha. It's got gun murder, it's got park steaks... if it had Provel in there, it would be the St, Louis trifecta.

 @DoucheMcGee That was the impetus. I'm going to hazard a guess that there were maybe other issues, too.

@Misnoper Imo's is kind of murder, though. Cheese product murder.
