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.
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.
BBQ Pork Steaks in the Slow Cooker
- 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.)
So if you’re staring at a package of pork steaks in your freezer like I was, or if you found them on sale at your local grocery store… you MAY want to give this a try. You won’t be disappointed.
Do you have the dinnertime blues? Let’s get rid of those NOW!
I’ve heard from so long,
“Jessica, I just need quick and easy recipes to make my family for dinner, and if you can tell me what to serve with it… that’d be even better.”
So I did it! I made a cookbook JUST FOR YOU! You don’t want to hesitate, because your dinnertime is about to get a LOT easier.
