Boston Butt Pork Steaks

Bargain Foods

As a mother of three, I know feeding a family can become quite expensive. So I like to bargain shop. I love the day when I can buy a week's worth of meat for $25. Then it's a matter of being creative enough with what you get so that you don't have to hear the typical whine of "That again!?!" that so often can come from children. These pork butt steaks cost me less than $3 for a pound and a half of meat.

They are actually quite tasty. They can be cooked in several different ways. This is just one of my favorite ways to cook them.

What a deal! $2.74 for one and a half pounds of pork!

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon oil of your choice
  • 1 1/2 pounds pork butt steak
  • Sprinkle Season-All
  • 1/2 cup ketchup
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 cup barbecue sauce
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder, fine chopped onion can be used
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder, fresh garlic can be used instead
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire, optional

10 Steps to Yum

  1. Preheat your oil of choice in the pan on medium to high heat and set your oven to 300°F.
  2. While your pan is heating up, sprinkle your pork with Season-All.
  3. Once your oil is hot, add your pork to the pan.
  4. Fry on each side for approximately 2 minutes or until light brown.
  5. While your meat is browning, combine ketchup, water, barbecue sauce, onion powder, garlic powder, and Worcestershire. If you like spice, I also add cayenne for an added kick. Up to your taste buds! Mix well.
  6. By now, your pork should be ready. Pull your steaks out, and put them on a metal cooking sheet. I prefer a metal cake pan. Pour half of the sauce over your steaks.
  7. Add your steaks to your pre-heated to 300°F oven and cook for about 1 hour and 15 minutes.
  8. Pull steaks out and turn your oven to broil.
  9. Cover the steaks with the other half of sauce and place back in the oven to broil for an additional 15 minutes.
  10. Eat your yummy pork steaks!
