Pork steaks are also called blade steaks, which are sliced from the shoulder blade of a pig. This cut of meat contains a significant amount of fat, which keeps it moist, but it is from an active muscle, which can make it tougher than other cuts of pork. Pork steaks are generally slow-cooked to release fat from the meat and to ensure its tenderness. By baking pork steaks in the oven, you can slow cook them until juicy and tender.
