Very tasty. I found that if the pork cooked a little longer (like a minute or two) than just till it surfaced it made the flavor more robust. Read More

This tastes awesome but may be the nutrionally worst dish I've ever prepared. For true pork steaks (cut from pork shoulder) and deep frying the fat content is probably more like 150g per serving. Read More

Delicious! The only thing I did didfferently was to soak my steaks in buttermilk for about an hour before cooking this helps tenderize them and I just love the flavor. These are my family's favorite new way to have fried pork. Thanks. Read More

LOVED this steak. I love pork steak and I'm excited to find a great new way to make it. If you don't have all the spices make it anyway. I didn't have cinnamon tumeric or paprica and it still was wonderful. I can't wait to try it again when I have them all. I also used regular salt instead of seasoned salt and I'm glad I did. I think that a dose of Johnny's would have been too much. (It's saltier than table salt and has an artificial flavor I don't care for.) This was great! Read More

This was very good. My first time actually deep frying a pork steak but the seasonings were wonderful. Very tasty. I served it with some kicked up peas and some potatoes. Read More

Has a nice texture and flavor. I also dipped and soaked it in buttermilk before patting in the breading. It was great and cooked fairly fast in oil. Its good enough for company any day. Its a great change. Read More
