Juicy Butt Steaks

Juicy Butt Steaks

Melissa 4

"My mom used to make this and it is my favorite meal. The pork butts come out so tender and juicy. 'Butts' are a favorite in my family. Serve with baked or mashed potatoes and a veggie. If you like a lot of sauce then double the recipe, the sauce is fantastic."

  1. Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Season the pork steaks on both sides with salt, pepper and garlic powder. Place in the skillet and cook until browned on each side, about 4 minutes per side.
  2. Place sliced onions on top of the steaks in the pan. Stir together the ketchup and water in a medium bowl; pour over the steaks. Bring to a simmer, then reduce the heat to medium-low, cover and cook for about 2 hours. The longer you cook, the better the meat tastes.

My husband loved this recipe. I used shoulder steaks instead of butt steaks, after 2 hours it was falling off the bones. Made cheesy mashed potatoes with it, turned out great. One of our new favorite recipes. Will definitely fix it again.


I posted this recipe a while ago....after reading everyone's reviews we decided to try cooking this in our crock pot. I had never thought about it before and would only make this when I was home for most of the day. It really worked out well. We cooked it for about 4 hours on low and then put it on high and cooked for another 2 and a half. It was tender and delish but I think it could have been a little more tender so next time I will cook on low all day about 8 to 10 hours. Everyone really loved it...even my mom who taught me how to make this thought the crock pot was a great idea.


I did this in my crock pot. My husband usually doesn't like pork, but he loved this. He is part Filipino, and eats rice with everything, so I served it over a bed of jasmine rice- and I loved it too! Thanks for the recipe and everyone's great reviews that convinced me to try it!
