Angela’s Tips & Recipe Notes

  • To ensure your pork steaks are safe to eat, the USDA recommends an internal temperature of 145°F (63°C). At this temperature, the steaks will be juicy and slightly pink in the middle. If you prefer your pork well-done, you can cook it up to 160°F (71°C).
  • Keep in mind that your pork steaks will continue to cook after they are removed from the grill due to carryover cooking. It’s important to account for this when determining the level of doneness you desire.
  • Resting your grilled pork steaks is crucial as it allows them to reabsorb their juices, resulting in tender and succulent meat.

Remember to thaw them in the fridge overnight before reheating to maintain their delicious flavors.

To reheat, preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Place the pork steaks in a baking dish with a few tablespoons of broth or water, cover with foil, and bake for 10-15 minutes or until heated through.

Grilled Pork Steaks: The Perfect Timing and Temperature

Grill your pork steaks over medium heat (350-400°F or 177-205°C) to ensure they cook evenly and retain their juicy tenderness. Avoid high heat, as it can dry out the steaks.

The cooking time for pork steaks is approximately 8-10 minutes per side. It’s essential to flip them periodically until they reach your desired level of doneness. The total grilling time will vary depending on how well-done you prefer your pork.
