Pork steaks are frequently grilled over charcoal and then simmered in barbecue sauce to further tenderise and flavor them.

Pork steaks are generally cut from the shoulder of the pig, but can also be cut from the loin or leg of the pig. Shoulder steaks are cut from the same primal cut of meat most commonly used for pulled pork, and can be quite tough without long cooking times due to the high amount of collagen in the meat, therefore, pork shoulder steaks are often cooked slower than a typical beef steak, and are often stewed or simmered in barbecue sauce during cooking.

Pork shoulder steaks are a staple of St. Louis-style barbecue. Their creation is attributed to Don and Ed Schnuck, second-generation owners of Schnucks supermarket chain.[1]
