🔪 How To Bake Pork Steaks

Preparing baked pork steaks is incredibly easy and requires minimal effort. Follow these simple steps:

  1. Prep: Start by preheating your oven to 400°F (205°C). Cover a baking sheet with parchment paper or aluminum foil.
  2. Season: Rinse and pat dry the pork steaks. Brush them with olive oil, ensuring even coverage. Generously sprinkle the steak seasoning on each side of the steaks. Place the seasoned steaks on the prepared baking sheet.
  3. Bake: Place the baking sheet with the pork steaks in the middle of the oven’s center rack. Bake at 400°F (205°C) for 15 to 18 minutes. If desired, you can turn on the broil function for 2 minutes to sear the steaks until golden brown. Be careful not to let them burn!
  4. Finish and Serve: Use an instant-read thermometer to check if the pork steaks have reached an internal temperature of 145°F (63°C), ensuring they are safe to eat. Once they reach this temperature, remove them from the oven and let them rest for a few minutes. Serve immediately.

💭 Tips & Notes

  • Substitute with Pork Chops: If you can’t find pork steaks, you can use an equal amount of pork chops instead and follow the same cooking instructions.
  • Thickness and Cooking Time: Pork steaks are typically about ½ inch thick. Thicker cuts may require more time in the oven. Use a meat thermometer to ensure they are cooked perfectly.
  • Olive Oil for Even Seasoning: Brushing the steaks with olive oil before seasoning helps the seasoning adhere evenly and promotes uniform browning in the oven. This is particularly useful for leaner cuts to retain moisture.
  • Grilling Option: If you prefer a grilled variation, try grilling the pork steaks on a clean, oiled surface preheated to medium. Allow the steaks to reach room temperature before grilling for even cooking and to reduce the risk of drying out.

🥡 Storing & Reheating

To keep these savory steaks fresh, store them in the refrigerator for 3 to 4 days in airtight containers or tightly wrapped in plastic cling film or aluminum foil. For longer preservation, you can freeze the steaks for up to 6 months in an airtight container or freezer bag. Thaw them efficiently under running cool water or in the refrigerator overnight.

To reheat the steaks, preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Place the steaks in a baking dish, add a splash of water or chicken broth, and cover with foil. Bake for 10 to 15 minutes or until they reach your desired temperature. This ensures the steaks stay juicy and flavorful.
