HOW THE PORK STEAK WAS BORN

What would we do without pork steaks? Well, in St. Louis we’ll never know thanks to Don and Ed Schnuck!

BORN IN ST. LOUIS

In the 1950’s Don and Ed, the second generation of the Schnuck family, wanted to offer a cut of meat for grilling that was inexpensive enough to fit every family’s budget. True innovators, they cut a pork shoulder, one-half inch thick and found that it made an excellent cut of meat to throw on the grill. The pork steak was born!

Don’s wife, Doris, made a famous barbecue sauce that pairs perfectly with pork steaks. Get the recipe here and try it tonight.

COOKED TO PERFECTION

Preheat grill to 450°F. Season pork steak with salt and pepper and allow to reach room temperature. Grill until internal temperature reaches 145°F, about 5 minutes per side. Brush both sides of steak with Schnucks barbecue sauce and continue to cook for another minute, flipping once halfway through.
