How To Cook Pork Steaks On The Grill

The Best Barbecued Pork Steaks (6 Servings)


  • 3 pounds of pork shoulder steak (this should yield about 5 to 6 steaks)
  • 24 ounces of light beer
  • 8 ounces of sweet barbecue sauce

For the spice rub

  • 3 tablespoons of brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons of smoked paprika
  • 1 tablespoon of onion powder
  • 1 tablespoon of garlic powder
  • ½ teaspoon of salt
  • ⅛ teaspoon of pepper

For optional basting liquid

  • 8 ounces of light beer
  • 8 ounces of apple juice


  1. Marinate the pork shoulder steaks in mild lager for at least one hour and as long as throughout the night, if you prefer.
  2. Preheat the grill to a low heat setting.
  3. Using a paper towel, blot the pork steaks until they’re dry.
  4. Combine the brown sugar, onion powder, smoked paprika, garlic powder, salt, and pepper in a small bowl.
  5. Coat both sides of the pork shoulder steaks evenly using the spice rub.
  6. In a small bowl, combine the beer and apple juice if you want to coat the pork steaks while they’re cooking on the grill.
  7. Grill each pork steak for 12 minutes per side on a covered grill (keep the vents open); during this process, coat the steaks occasionally with the optional basting liquid (if using).
  8. Round up the cooking process by grilling the pork steaks for an additional 5 minutes on each side, coating each streak generously with some barbecue sauce on both sides.
  9. If preferred, serve the grilled pork steaks with extra barbecue sauce on the side.

  • Make use of your preferred barbecue sauce, but search for one that has a sweeter quality and more brown sugar or molasses composition (you can verify this by checking the ingredient list). This will help you achieve a lovely toasted crust on your pork steaks.
  • Don’t forget to cover the pork steaks with some barbecue sauce within the last 5 minutes of grilling; it’ll make all the difference in the results of your cooking.
