Murphysboro Style Pork Steaks

Popular in BBQ restaurants in Southern Illinois down through St. Louis, pork steaks are an excellent option for a quick BBQ when you don't have the time to smoke a pork butt or shoulder!

This recipe is from pitmaster and World Champion BBQ Chef Ken Hess's experience dining at BBQ restaurants while getting advice from his fellow pitmasters. At Snow's BBQ in Lexington, Texas, pitmaster Tootsie makes an excellent pork steak, as does Mike Mills at 17th Street Barbecue in Murphysboro, Illinois. Ken's friend Randy Twyford, a pitmaster who runs pork steaks on his BBQ food truck once a week, gave him some pointers for this recipe as well.

If you've never made BBQ with Kansas City red sauce, you're in for a real treat! Serve these mouth-watering pork steaks with your favorite BBQ side dishes—baked beans, grilled corn on the cob, roasted potatoes—you get the idea!
