Pork Shoulder with Gravy

If you grew up in the Midwest you definitely know what that first bite of a slow cooked pork shoulder tastes like. To us, it’s like a hug for your belly.

Typically, you would use a pork shoulder to make pulled pork. However, today we’ll be cooking this on the stove top. By breaking the pork shoulder down into smaller pork steaks, it’s going to allow it to cook a lot faster. This specific dish is inspired by our friend, Chef Sarah Bradley, from Freight House in Paducah, Kentucky. She broke down an entire pork shoulder into small pork steak, braised them and served them up with some incredible sides. To see Chef Sarah in action, check our her feature on our Meat America Show.
