Preheat & Season

Brush pork steaks with vinegar mixture
Season the pork steaks

  1. Preheat your cleaned and oiled grill to medium heat (350-400°F or 177-205°C). In a small bowl, combine the salt, paprika, black pepper, garlic powder, and onion powder. Set aside for later.
  2. In another bowl, mix the apple cider vinegar and water. Brush this mixture over the pork steaks, then generously season them with the prepared seasoning blend. Flip the steaks and repeat on the other side.

Grill, Rest & Serve Your Pork Steaks

Transfer seasoned pork steaks to your preheated grill
Flip and continue cooking

  1. Place the pork steaks on the preheated grill and cook for 8-10 minutes. Flip the steaks and grill for another 8-10 minutes on the opposite side. Flip as needed to achieve a perfect caramelized sear and your desired level of doneness (check the internal temperature at the thickest part of the pork steaks).
  2. Once cooked, transfer the pork steaks to a plate or cutting board, and loosely cover them with foil. Allow them to rest for 5 minutes before serving.

Serve these delicious grilled pork steaks with roasted potatoes and sautéed asparagus for a well-rounded meal. They also pair beautifully with roasted vegetables or twice-baked potatoes. Enjoy!

Angela’s Tips & Recipe Notes

  • The USDA recommends cooking pork to an internal temperature of 145°F (63°C) for safe consumption. At this temperature, the pork steaks will be juicy and slightly pink in the middle. You can cook them up to 160°F (71°C) for a well-done result.
  • Keep in mind that there is a slight carryover cooking effect after you remove the pork steaks from the grill.
  • Resting is essential for maintaining the juiciness of the grilled pork steaks. It allows the meat to reabsorb its juices, resulting in tender and flavorful steaks.

Storing & Reheating

Leftover grilled pork steaks can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for 3-4 days.

To freeze the leftovers, place them in a heavy-duty freezer bag or an airtight container and store them in the freezer for up to 3 months. Thaw the steaks in the fridge overnight before reheating. Remember to remove as much air as possible from the freezer bag to prevent freezer burn.

Reheating Grilled Pork Steaks

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 them with foil and bake for 10-15 minutes or until heated through.

What Temperature Do You Grill Pork Steaks At?

Grill your pork steaks over medium heat (350-400°F or 177-205°C). Cooking them over high heat will result in dry steaks.

How Long Do You Grill Pork Steaks?

Grill your pork steaks for 8-10 minutes on one side, flip them, and grill for another 8-10 minutes on the opposite side. Continue grilling and flipping until you achieve your desired level of doneness. The cooking time will vary depending on how well-done you prefer your pork steaks.

How Often Do You Flip Pork Steaks On The Grill?

Once the pork steaks are cooked and you’re looking to achieve perfect caramelization and desired doneness, flip them every 5 minutes until they reach your preferred level of doneness.
