Pork Steak Sandwich
Pork steaks are very popular among Germans and pretty much always present in restaurants, barbeques and fairground events like the Oktoberfest.
The Schweinenackensteak (pork neck steak) is made from the neck of the pig. Since the neck carries the head of the pig, it is especially strong. Neck steaks stand out in how juicy and tender and flavorful they are. The large part in muscular fat makes for good taste and keeps meat tender while it is roasted or grilled. This is why you get tasty steaks from the pork neck both for grilling and pan frying.
