Reverse Seared Thick Cut Pork Steak

After years of cooking “Pulled” Pork with pork butts comes the question, “How many ways can pork butt be pulled”?  I grew up on thin cut pork steaks grilled or cooked in a pan, always with the bone and finished with BBQ sauce usually burned.  

What can I say “I have gotten bored with pulled pork” and what you can do with it.  So, I went back to my roots and worked on a way to incorporate the very available and cheap pork butt and a new custom way to prepare the butt into a thick cut pork steak. It easy to find a 1/16th thick of an inch bone it pork steak at your local big box or grocery stores, but thicker cut pork steak is almost never seen at the local stores.

So how can we take that pork butt and take the boring out of it, here is a method and technique that will help take the boring out of “Pulled” pork.

Here is the step-by-step video on how to de bone and prepare a thick cut boneless pork steak.
