If you google it it comes up as a 'lean loin of pork' so despite the name which makes it sound like a better-not-thought-about-cut of offal from the genitals, it sounds as if it is quite a good cut!

I thought all pork referred to genitals [rolls eyes]

<<Griskins: This is a pork steak and it has been suggested that the word griskin comes from the Viking word griss, meaning young pig. Perhaps the Vikings introduced this cut of meat to the Irish. Here is a recipe:

Trim the fat from the pork steak. Cut into 3/4-inch thick slices/ Melt a little butter in a pan. As it begins to foam, season the pork with salt and freshly ground pepper. Put it into the foaming butter and cook on a pretty high heat until golden on one side, then turn over and cook to golden the other side.>>

Seems a long recipe for simply frying a pork steak!!
