Honestly,  I think the hardest part of this recipe was walking to the deep freezer, to pull the pork steaks out to cook. 

You’ll find the full recipe card at the bottom of the post, but if you’re a visual person, don’t miss the helpful tips throughout the post!

How to Cook Pork Steaks

First, I added a little salt and pepper to the pork steaks, before putting them in the cooker.

Since my crazy-awesome parents gifted us with half a hog this year, we have an endless large amount of pork in our deep freeze. And because I didn’t think until the last minute to make pork steaks for dinner, I threw those frozen babies right in to the slow cooker.

She pours BBQ sauce right over her pork steaks in the slow cooker and cooks them for a few hours. So tender! Great for crockpot or slow cooker meals.

Then, I literally poured the sauce right over the pork steaks. Set it, forget it.

Tender Pork Steak Recipes

I’ve always been on a hunt for tender pork steak recipes, and before making these, I knew that cooking meats in the slow cooker, typically made them super tender. But for my husband to stop mid-bite to say,

“Jessica… these are really, really tender.”

I’ll have a hard time making these any other way. They were so tender that I’m even considering cooking them again, just to use the meat in a “pulled pork,” style of dish. They turned out to be one of the best pork steak recipes we’ve ever had.

HEADS UP: Our slow cooker tends to cook SUPER fast. (Even on the “low” setting.) So our pork steaks tend to be “done” after a couple of hours. But when I leave the pork steaks in the crockpot for a while (at least four hours) they’re literally hard to get out, without them falling off of the bone.

 These were SOOO tender! BBQ Pork steaks in the slow cooker are SO much easier than grilling, and they come out so tender!

  • 4 pork steaks
  • 1 bottle BBQ sauce we use Sweet Baby Rays
  • salt and pepper to taste


  • Rub salt and pepper on both sides of each pork steak.
  • Using a knife, cut a small slit or two in each steak.
  • Pour a dab of bbq sauce in the bottom of the slow cooker
  • Place a steak in the slow cooker and baste with a dab of bbq sauce.
  • Repeat the process and place another steak in the slow cooker, making sure each steak is covered with sauce.
  • Cook on low for 4-6 hours, or until steaks are done. (Making sure internal temp of pork steaks reach 145 degrees, and allow to rest for 3 minutes before serving.)


*** Our crockpot cooks VERY hot, so there are times that the pork steaks are done in a shorter amount of time. But the longer the pork steaks remain in the slow cooker, they FALL off of the bone.

    Jessica, it is too late to cook a pork steak in the crockpot. How long and at what temperature could I cook a pork steak with the BBQ Sauce in the oven. (Please)

  6. Laura says:

    Do you need to thaw the pork steaks first?

    1. Jessica says:

      I didn’t thaw them! I put them right in, frozen as they were! 🙂

    Great recipient. I retired this year, so I have time now to look for new dinner ideas. Love your site!

      1. Steve says:

        Thank you Jessica!

  8. Sarah-Jane says:

    Hi there, do I just marinade the steaks and put them in or do I need to empty the whole bottle of BBQ sauce into the crock pot? Seems like not a lot of liquid otherwise. Thanks

    1. Jessica says:

      Hi Sarah-Jane! You don’t need to marinate the pork steaks or add any liquid! Just place a small amount of sauce at the bottom of the slower cooker and then place the steaks in the slow cooker, one at a time, covering each one with bbq sauce and then cook! I hope that helps!

  9. Alan says:

    I was wondering if I can make the gravy out of the juices from pork shoulder blade BBQ or mashed potatoes

    1. Jessica says:

      Hi Alan! You know, that’s a great idea… but I haven’t tried that yet. It may depend on how much of the drippings the pork produces, but I’d sure try it. It sounds delicious!

  10. Karen says:

    So we’ve literally just lifted some pork steaks out of the freezer and our homemade BBQ sauce. Fingers crossed I’ll let you know how we like them later. Thanks for the recipe

    1. Jessica says:

      Oh I hope you loved them! Can’t wait to hear!

  11. Karen Phillips says:

    Can I use thawed pork steaks for this

    1. Jessica says:

      Hi Karen! You absolutely can, but they just won’t take as long to cook, so you may just want to check the internal temp to see when they’re done! 🙂

  14. Floyd Vice says:

    Thank you. I am a single male 77 years old. I can’t cook. Never learned. Now I have to. I loked at 15 recipes before I found this one. Every one of the others listed 7 or 8 ingrediates that I never heard of. I was about to give up and just burn them in a skillet. Then I found your recipe! Steaks, bbq sauce, crock pot, 4 hours! THAT is my kind of cooking. Please more like this, little prep time, few but common ingredients, little involvement in the cooking part. I bookmarked your sight!

    1. Jessica says:

      Hi Floyd! I’m SO glad that you found this recipe and that you liked it!!! That’s exactly what I love to cook. Delicious and easy! So glad you bookmarked it! Thank you!

    I’m going to give this a try. Sounds absolutely delicious. I am thinking about fixing this one night this week.

    1. Jessica says:

      Oh good!!! Thank you Wendy! I hope you love it as much as we do!

  16. Kimmie says:

    5 stars

    Oh. Em. Gee.

    5 stars is not enough to rave about this recipe. I just took it out of the cooker about 20 min ago. Had to use a spoon because it was so tender and about to fall off the bone. Took a little taste, but it was so good I had to have another. Super simple and yet, a fantastic payoff that tastes like i put in tons of effort. Just for some spice I threw a can of Chipotle Ro-tel in there.

    For dinner I’ll make some rice and pour the juices over that, and add a side of sauteed spinach with mushrooms and garlic.

    Thank you so much for this!

    P.S. Stay safe!
