Easy Entertaining, St. Louis Style
Growing up in St. Louis, I enjoyed this amazingly simple recipe over and over again. My father's cooking skills left something to be desired, but this forgiving recipe was always a hit. With only five ingredients and flexible cooking times, this low maintenance dish is great for long days spent entertaining. Make a big batch and leave it on the heat, enjoy whenever you're hungry.
St. Louis Style Pork Steak
Budweiser or other inexpensive Lager
Fire up your grill and season pork with a liberal sprinkle of salt and pepper.
Cook your pork steaks over medium/high heat. 4-5 minutes on each side. Err on the side of overcooking- a little char doesn't hurt.
Combine beer and barbecue sauce in a large deep pan (foil roasting pans are a great option). Aim for a 50:50 mix. You can use any sauce, but we tend to opt for a sweet sauce, like Sweet Baby Rays.
Add cooked pork steaks to the bbq mixture and cover. Either put the pan in a closed grill over low heat or place in an oven set to 275. Braise for a minimum of 90 minutes.
Pull steaks out and enjoy as wanted.
For the best bbq pork sandwich of your life, remove the bone and serve on a bun topped with pickles.
