Blade Steak Basics

A steak comes from a roast cut that’s been sliced. Blade steaks (also called pork steaks) are cut from the pork shoulder and contain the blade bone. Blade steaks are flavorful like roasts because they are rich in marbling, which keeps them tender during cooking. Blade steak is a popular, quick-cooking cut for grilling.

Meat Counter Tips

Do not overcook pork or it will become dry and tough. Cooking to 145° F with a three-minute rest will result in clear or slightly pink tinted juices and provides meat that is juicy and tender.
