Pork Steak

I have been introduced to a new cut of pork called a pork steak. It’s from the pork shoulder, the same pork shoulder you roast low and slow, but this steak is cooked in a cast iron skillet fast and hot—smoking hot. I thought the final product would be tough, but it was anything but. It was tender, juicy, and delicious, like a beef rib eye. This cut is economical and only cost me $5 at the butcher.
