Grilled Pork Steaks
These pork steaks are marinated in vinegar, brown sugar, and spices, then grilled to perfection. The thing I love about these pork steaks is their versatility. They work well as a dinner protein, but really shine as a brunch item served with eggs and breakfast potatoes. You can even transform leftover pork steaks into a breakfast hash, add them sandwich wraps, or to a pot of hearty barbecue beans. Limitless potential, and delicious too!
- 2 pork shoulder steaks sometimes labeled as chops
- 1/4 cup white vinegar
- 1 1/2 tablespoons oil
- 1 1/2 tablespoons brown sugar
- 1 tablespoon yellow mustard
- 1 teaspoon salt add more if needed
- 1/2 teaspoon dry mustard
- 1/2 teaspoon granulated garlic
- 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
- 1/2 teaspoon paprika
- 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
- Combine all marinade ingredients in a small bowl. The mixture will be like a loose paste.
- Apply the mixture onto steaks, and place them into a resealable plastic bag. Let pork steaks marinate in the refrigerator for 6-8 hours.
- Preheat grill or smoker for 250 degrees F.
- Remove the steaks from the bag and reserve marinade. Place steaks on the grill grate and gently pour the remaining marinade over top (there might not be a lot, but every bit matters!)
- Close the lid and cook for 6-8 minutes per side, depending on the thickness of pork steaks. Once the internal temperature reaches between 155-160 degrees F. Remove from heat and let meat rest for 5-10 minutes before serving.
