My husband thought these cajun bbq pork steaks were the best thing ever. And I must say, I liked them a lot too. The searing of the steaks retains their flavor and the flour really helps the sauce to stay nice and thick.
Now a word about the cut of meat. I picked this certain cut of meat “Pork Shoulder Butt Steaks” because it is perfect for the slow cooker. When you are picking pork cuts of meat destined for your slow cooker make sure to use anything with the word “shoulder” or “butt” or “boston” in the title. They have enough collagen and fat to really work well with the low, long, even heat. And don’t worry the “butt” cut is not actually the bum of the pig, it’s the shoulder. 🙂

cajun seasoning, garlic powder, and onion powder and then pour over the top of
hours (depending how hot your slow cooker cooks). The meat should be fork
tender and literally falling off the bone.

We are making this for tonight. Pork Shoulder Butt Steaks are very economical. My local store even had them on clearance for only $1.39/lb. Can't wait to eat them up with my family.

So good! I happened to use country style pork ribs, and they turned out great! I loved eating them on top pf mashed potatoes with the extra bbq sauce!
