While this recipe is good, The Old St. Louis South Side way is to partially grill the porksteaks then transfer to a beer and bbq sauce. Simmer till the meat comes off the bone. Porksteaks can be tought otherwise Our family has prepared porksteaks this way for 3 generations.
I tried this the frist day I read it. It turned out good, but I did make a few changes. First, I didn't use nearly as much basting liquid as stated, only about a cup. I addition to the salt & pepper, I used a little onion and garlic powder. Also, I added a few drops of liquid smoke to the liquid, perfect! It was very moist from the low heat, and very flavorful. This recipe gave a good start to what can be a very delicious dish.
From St. Louis and I agree beer must be used. Suggestion: I grill only long enough for flavor get cooking started and to seer the meat. Then remove steaks and submerge in bbq sauce in a pirex dish place in oven at low temp and let them cook out very slowly several hours. Bbq sauce will cook in and the meat will fall apart.
I'm from St.Louie also not really into the vinager thing I sear on bothsides then baste with favorite bbq sauce and stack steaks on cool part of grill.keep basting and atlernating stack for about an hour the juices run down the stacktenderizing underneith.really good
I'm also from St. Louis and love these!The vinegar thing is the key. We boil ours in vinegar first and they get so tender and juicy then we throw them on the grill to finish them off. AWESOME! Lived in NC for several years and St. Louis BBQ is the real deal. That NC stuff is just shredded meat in vinegar. They don't even grill it! It's not BBQ it's blasphemy!
O wow... this was amazing. I did tweak the seasonings a bit adding liquid smoke garlic and onion powders. Only had 2 steaks made about 1 cup marinade basted every couple of minutes... PERFECT. This marinade/basting liquid also works famously on chicken. Suspect the only thing it ISN'T good on is ice cream but at 33 weeks pregnant even I'm known to experiment! Thanks for such a good recipe.
Oh my YUM. I am from St. Louis and I have missed these pork steaks. I lost my recipe for these a while back...and thank goodness someone else posted this. You don't really need all that basting liquid unless your family likes to slather it on after it has been cooked. Thanks for the post. Delicious.
As a St Louisan who makes porksteaks in a totally different way I thouht I'd try these and they were great! Didn't quite need all the basting sauce but I used quite a bit as I basted numerous times in the first 15 minutes of cooking. Thanks for a new variety of what we already love!
