      Pork steak is simply a pork butt(upper shoulder) that has been sliced with a meat saw about 1/2" thick(bone-in). I usually grill them with a teriyaki-ginger glaze or McCormick's Caribbean Jerk and they turn out great.

        I trim them close. Them broil till just done. If you cook the fat out thay are stringy as opposed to juicy

          I cook them all the time! Fry them on low for about an hour or so in butter, with lemon pepper and garlic powder, and they turn out fork tender and deliciious!IMO they are much more tender and tastier than a loin chop, due to the fat content! Have also done them on a grill and they are equally as good! Don't look a "cheap" cut of pork in the mouth!!! :)

            The pork blade steak is one of the best kept secrets around. What I am seeing are from the front of the hog with a slight amount of blade bone in the middle. I grill them on a high heat just like any other steak. They are surprisingly inexpensive. I have raved about them to a family friend who has 4.5 people in her house. I know that if my mom was aware of them, she would have served them to me and my four other brothers.

            We should stop talking about it right now before the rest of the world discovers them.
            There was a time when pork ribs were cheap......

              It sounds like I re-invented the wheel. One day the other year, I grabbed a pork butt at the store and had the butcher saw it into 1" thick slices for grilling. It just seemed like a natural thing to do, because of the fat running through it which would sort of self-baste it during the grilling. It worked fine, as I recall.

              So these are a normal supermarket item elsewhere? Who knew.
