Pork steak is among the most flavorful pieces of meat that can come from a pig/pork. This is also popular in the Philippines. See our Special Pork Steak Recipe here.

It is because it has just the right amount of fat throughout to add flavor and keep it moist.

Many people may integrate the pork steak into a dish or casserole, but just as with beef steak, pork steak is left to be appreciated all by itself.

Match it with a baked potato or a salad, and you’ve got an unbeatable meal.
