Pork Steaks are cut from the Boston Butt, or Pork Shoulder. Sometimes they are even cut from the fresh ham (hind quarter), but not often. Pork Chops are cut from the Loin and they may be presented boneless or bone-in. Pork Chops are normally more tender than the Pork Steaks. Chops can be cooked hot and quick because they are naturally tender, as long as they are not over cooked. An internal temp of 155° is good. Pork Steaks require a longer cook at a lower temperature to get tender and are usually done at 185° internal.
