Grilled Pork Steaks Recipe

Pork steak makes sense for anyone with a passion for barbecue as it uses the same primal cuts of meat involved in preparing pulled pork. This recipe covers everything you need to know to make a quality pork steak, except for quantifying the number or weight of the steaks to be cooked.

  • Cola, dark, 4 oz

  • Cola, clear, 4 oz

  • Juice, apple, 1-2 cups (depending on number of steaks)

  • Salt, kosher, 1/2 cup

  • Water, as needed

  • Salt

  • Pepper

  • All-Purpose Rub

  • Your favorite barbecue sauce


  • Brine the pork steaks within a mixture of dark cola, clear cola, apple juice, kosher salt and just enough water to fill your brining vessel.

  • Allow them to brine for several hours, up to 3 days if you feel like it.

  • Rinse off the brine from the steaks, pat them as dry as possible and then lay them out on a tray.

  • Sprinkle the meat with either salt and pepper or the rub.

  • Sear each steak over direct heat, roughly 10 minutes per side.

  • Dab sauce onto one side of the steak, flip it over and apply sauce to the reverse side.

  • Feel free to repeat this step if you love sauce.

  • Close up every vent in your grill, allow the sauce to set into the steaks for 5 minutes and then take them out of the grill.

  • Allow the steaks to rest between 5 and 10 minutes before you do any cutting.
