Pan Fried Pork Steaks

I remember a few years back I had randomly purchased some pork steaks to grill at home. They were plain but SO delicious. Ever since that day, my favorite “treat yourself” dinner that I make is Pork Steaks, especially when they local grocery store has them on sale. I have now since found my favorite way to marinate them and cook them. Below I will show you how I make mine.


  • Pork Steaks
  • Soy Sauce
  • Teriyaki Sauce
  • Butter
  • Salt & Pepper
  • Garlic Powder

How Do I Marinate These?

Marinating of the Pork Steaks is super easy. Just like most of my recipes, you don’t have too measure. I typically toss my Pork Steaks into a bowl and season with garlic powder, salt & pepper. Pour some soy sauce and teriyaki sauce over the steaks, tryin to cover both sides. Flipping the steaks around the bowl a few times to coat. Place back in the fridge for 12-24 hours to marinate.

How Do I Cook Pork Steaks?

Remove the marinated steaks from the fridge at least 30 minutes before cooking. Allowing them to get to room temperature allows for better cooking, allows the steaks to get a nice sear. Get your cast iron skillet, piping hot and throw down a tablespoon of butter. Place your steaks in the hot pan, turning the pan down to a medium heat to cook through the steaks, roughly 5-7 minutes on each side. Then turn the heat back up to high and get a sear on the steaks. May be adding more butter as you go.

Total cook time for these is roughly 20 minutes. They certainly don’t take long and they taste great. The key really is the marinade and the sear. Absolutely delicious!!

You’ll have to watch your local grocery store for these to go on sale. Give them a try and let me know what you think!!
