Juicy Butt Steaks


My mom used to make this and it is my favorite meal. The pork butts come out so tender and juicy. 'Butts' are a favorite in my family. Serve with baked or mashed potatoes and a veggie. If you like a lot of sauce then double the recipe, the sauce is fantastic.

  • 2 pork shoulder (Boston butt) steaks

  • 1 large onion, sliced

  • 2 cups ketchup

  • 2 cups water

  • salt and pepper to taste

  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder, or to taste


  1. Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Season the pork steaks on both sides with salt, pepper and garlic powder. Place in the skillet and cook until browned on each side, about 4 minutes per side.

  2. Place sliced onions on top of the steaks in the pan. Stir together the ketchup and water in a medium bowl; pour over the steaks. Bring to a simmer, then reduce the heat to medium-low, cover and cook for about 2 hours. The longer you cook, the better the meat tastes.
