soft but chewy
It's the first time I've cooked pork shoulder steaks and having read previous reviews I slow cooked them for 3 hours on 140 with Mediterranean veg, garlic, chilli flakes and a little bit of chicken stock. They were soft but still chewy in texture and bland considering the amount of seasoning used. Maybe I needed to cook them longer or at an higher temperature ?
I've been buying these for a while and don't understand some of the negative reviews if they are cooked right they are delicious. They are best cooked in the oven for about 2hrs on a v.low heat. I fry some onions, brown the pork and add a jar of tescos Hunters chicken sauce and stir in 2 tbsp of demerara sugar, great served with rice and veg.
Jobs a good un
Excellent for the money obviously they need to be cooked right I've always oven cooked though.Also every oven grill or hob is different cooking times are a guide only learn your oven for best results.A bad workman blames his tools.
Use correct cooking method for the meat.
I see people are leaving negative reviews because they don't know how to cook these, but they can't really be blamed because even the people who gave the instructions on the package don't know how to cook them. If you follow their instructions they certainly will be 'as tough as old boots'. These must be slow cooked. I do mine, seasoned with Schwartz chicken seasoning, in water and a splash of apple cider vinegar for 8 hours, or as soon as I can 'pull' the meat easily. 14-18 minutes in the frying pan most certainly won't bring the best out in this meat. To pan fry pork, go for thick pork loin steaks instead (cook on a high heat 3 minutes each side after rendering the fat side - perfect).
Delicious! Needs to be slow cooked for hours, otherwise won't be tender - I can only imagine those giving it a poor review haven't cooked it properly.
Very tasty, tender and good value!
Very tasty, tender and good value. I just marinated the steaks in a bit of home-made Montreal steak seasoning, then popped them in the slow cooker on a bed of chopped veg and a very small amount of stock and slow-cooked for 5 hours. So simple and perfect every time!
Pork very tough!
I wanted to buy British pork and this was the second time that I bought some, the first one being a Pork Leg and then these shoulder steaks. On both the occasions I found the meat to be very tough no matter how I tried to cook it. Very disappointing.
the reviews of some of these people obviously dont
the reviews of some of these people obviously dont know how to cook these put them in slow cooker water to just cover them 1 oxo cube cook on slow i do mine late at night they are so tasty and the juices make the best gravy they are cooked to perfection in the morning or put them on in the day but on high for id say good 5 hours the price is right so well done tesco
Tough as old boots!
I tenderised these with a meat mallet, marinated them, cut them into small pieces -- and it was tough as old boots! Can imagine meat that is worse, or how anybody gave these a good review!
too grissly and fatty. Not consistent quality.
