  • 2 Tbs. canola oil

  • ½ C. citrus juice (a blend of orange, lemon and lime works well together.)

  • 2 cloves garlic, peeled and minced

  • 1 Tbs. minced rosemary

  • 1 tsp. kosher salt

  • ½ tsp. black pepper


  • Begin by making the marinade.

  • Whisk together the canola oil, citrus juice, garlic, fresh herbs, salt and pepper in a medium to large sized bowl to combine together.

  • Then, place the pork steaks gently into the marinade, turning them over to evenly coat them with the mixture.

  • Next you will want to cover the bowl with either a lid or tin foil and refrigerate for 30-40 minutes. 

  • This is a step that cannot be rushed, so you always want to ensure you have plenty of time set aside for the process.

  • After that, you should preheat the grill on high heat (about 450 degrees F) ten minutes prior to use.

  • This step can be done while the meat is covered in the fridge.

  • Next, take the steaks out of the marinade and discard the marinade, it is no longer needed for the recipe.

  • Grill the steaks on one side over the high heat for about 3 minutes.

  • Then, turn the steaks over to the other side and grill for an additional 3 minutes or until the internal temperature registers 145 degrees F.

  • This step is where a digital thermometer comes in handy.

  • Charts can be used as well, but for beginner grillers, it is best to be certain to make sure the steaks are safe to consume.

  • Simply insert the thermometer into the thickest part of the steak without touching any of the bone.

  • The last part is easy; transfer the pork steaks to a clean platter or serving dish and allow to rest for four to five minutes prior to serving.

  • It is that simple! These delicious pork steaks are now ready to eat with your favorite side dishes.

  • Recommended side dishes for pork steaks include Brussel sprouts, scalloped potatoes, butterbeans, creamed corn, or potato salad.

  • Others like to keep it very traditional with side choices like mashed potatoes, green beans, or mixed vegetables. 

  • Of course the options are limitless and you can figure out what you think goes best with your grilled steaks.
