Kongo Kickin' Easy Pork Steaks Recipe
Looking for an EASY pork recipe that will leave your guests coming back for more? Or do you just really want to know how to cook pork steaks on the grill? Well, look no further. Pitmaster Shane Draper shares one of our best pork steak recipes and shows us how to prep and grill pork steaks with a kick of Kongo flavor on our Kong kamado grill.
To get started, you’ll start by applying an even coat of Grilla Grill’s All Purpose Rub on both sides of the pork steaks. Preheat your Kong to 275 degrees Fahrenheit and place your pork steaks on. Don’t worry about any edges that hang over, this will give them a nice flavorful char.
Start by cooking them for about 20 minutes on the first side and after the first 20, you’ll want to flip them. Just be sure to keep an eye out for any pieces that are hanging over the edge to make sure they don’t burn. Once your meat hits a minimum of 145 degrees internal temperature, you are set to go.
You’re looking at a 45-minute total cook time from start to finish. To add a bit of spice to this sweet and savory meat, drizzle on a touch of our Kongo Kick to enhance the flavor, or for a more savory flavor, try our Gold N’ Bold sauce.
Enjoy with a baked potato to complete your meal.
Grilled Pork Steaks in Under an Hour
Do you have an hour available to make a homemade dinner? Rather than rush off to a fast food place, grab those pork steaks from your refrigerator and fire up the Kong.
Our easy pork steaks recipe takes very little time. Beyond rubbing seasonings on your grilled pork steaks and turning them a couple of times, all you have to do is turn your attention to making side dishes.
A fresh green salad would go great with these grilled pork steaks. Just slice, dice and chop the ingredients in between flipping your pork steaks to perfection. In about an hour, you can go from “What will we have for dinner?” to “These are the best grilled pork steaks we have ever tasted!”
When to Add Your Kickin’ Sauce to Grilled Pork Steaks
As you can see, our recipe recommends adding sauce to your pork steaks at the very end of their cooking time. This is on purpose.
Basting your pork steaks while they are cooking may seem like a suitable way to infuse them with more flavor. However, what ends up happening is that the sauce overheats, chars or turns into a thick, syrupy mess.
To avoid ruining your grilled pork steaks by saucing them too soon, simply add the sauce at the very end. A few minutes before removing them from the grill, top them off with some sauce. You can also wait until you place them on a platter to serve them with your favorite sauce.
