About pork center steaks

Versatile, tasty, and nutritious pork center steaks are a good choice when you're looking for a red meat substitute. Pork center steaks are affordable and a great way to feed your family while on a budget.

Pork center steaks come from the shoulder area of the pig, while pork chops come from the rib and loin area. Pork center steaks are often called pork blade steaks because a piece of the shoulder blade is left with the meat. Pork center steaks have more dark meat, fat, and connective tissue than pork chops, and the extra fat helps to give pork center steaks their delicious flavor. Pork center steaks have a sweet flavor, and when cooked properly, are quite tender.

Pork center steaks come from the same primal cut of meat used for pulled pork. Pigs walk around and use their shoulder muscles to move. The more an animal uses its muscles, the tougher the meat becomes. Because pork center steaks come from the pig's shoulder, the meat is often on the tough side and lends itself well to slow cooking.

When picking out a pork center steak, look for ones that have pinkish-red flesh and a bit of marbling of fat interlaced in the meat. The more fat, the higher the calories, but this fat helps to add more flavor and juiciness to the meat.
