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.
