- (2) Pork Steaks
- (2/3 c.) Soy Sauce or Tamari
- (1 1/4 tsp.) Ground Ginger
- (4) Minced Garlic
- (2 Tbsp.) Rice Vinegar
- (3 tsp.) Sweet Chili Sauce
- (1/4 c.) Water
- (2 Tbsp.) Honey
- (2 Tbsp.) Brown Sugar
- (1 1/2 tsp.) Water
- (1 tsp.) Apple Cider Vinegar
- (1 tsp.) Balsamic Vinegar
Step 1: Using a shallow baking dish or gallon storage bag, mix the soy sauce, ginger, garlic, rice vinegar, sweet chili sauce and ½ cup of water together to make the marinade. Place the meat in the dish or bag and refrigerate 3 hours or as long as overnight. Don’t forget to occasionally turn the meat over in your dish or bag so the meat marinades on all sides.
Step 2: Make the honey glaze by combining the honey, brown sugar, apple cider vinegar, balsamic vinegar and 1 Tbsp of water in a shallow pan. Over low heat, whisk ingredients often until the brown sugar has melted and glaze comes to a gentle boil, approximately 5 minutes. Divide completed glaze into two separate bowls. Use one bow of glaze for grilling and brushing on the raw meat, and the other bowl for serving.
Step 3: Preheat the grill to a medium high temperature. If using stainless steel cooking grids that cover that cover the grill grates, brush with a little olive oil to keep the meat from sticking. Remove the pork steaks from the marinade and place on the grill. Discard your marinade. Cook the pork steaks on the first side for approximately 5-7 minutes depending on the thickness of the meat. Turn the steaks over and brush with the honey glaze and cook for another 4 or 5 minutes.
Pork is easily overcooked, so it is best to err on the side for a fewer minutes and test with a meat thermometer. Pork is cooked at 145℉.
Remove the pork steaks from the grill, cover with foil and allow the meat to rest 4 or 5 minutes. Resting allows the juices in the meat to redistribute making for a nice juicy cut when serving.
Step 4: While the meat is resting, finish your side dishes. A great idea is cauliflower fried rice and asparagus. (Reheat and finish the cauliflower fried rice and put the cleaned and cut asparagus on the grill. If not using grill grates, a grilling basket works well for cooking vegetables. Place the asparagus on the grill right where the meat was cooked to add some additional flavor to the veggies. Brush the asparagus with the honey glaze and turn until tender.)
Step 5: Uncover the pork steaks and brush again with the honey glaze. Sprinkle the meat and asparagus with a finishing salt (such as pink Himalayan) and pepper to taste. Garnish the steaks with chopped green onion, serve and enjoy!
