Pork Shoulder Steaks – Take 2!


Sweet and Sour Baked Pork Shoulder Steaks

Sweet and Sour Baked Pork Shoulder Steaks

A couple weeks ago I took my first stab at cooking pork shoulder steaks, with less than completely successful results. The meat had a lot of flavor, but was still tough and chewy. So I wanted to try a different technique for cooking the steaks this time, and decided upon slow oven braising. Tangy Sweet and Sour Pork Shoulder Steak Bake, a recipe from food.com, looked simple yet promising. I cooked half the recipe amount as I was preparing it for two, not four (or more). Otherwise I followed all of the steps and ingredients exactly.

The end result? Holy wow. It may not look pretty, but the flavor was outstanding and the meat just fell right off the bone, fork-tender, after first browning in the pan and then the slow bake in the oven with the tomato-based sauce. This recipe got raves from my sweetie and will absolutely be in my regular rotation of pork recipes from this point forward.
