Perfect Ponzu Pork Steaks

Ponzu grilled pork steaks

I love pork steaks! They’re inexpensive, loaded with flavor, and perfect for quick grilling.

    1/2 cup water
    1/3 cup ponzu sauce (Asian section)
    1/4 cup vegetable oil
    3 tablespoons lemon pepper seasoning
    2 garlic cloves, minced
    4 bone-in pork steaks
    4 Tbs. apricot jam

Mix all marinade ingredients, and pour over the pork steaks in a heavy gallon zip bag.

Marinate at least 4 hours, flipping the bag occasionally.

Remove pork from marinade and cook on one side over medium-high heat on charcoal or gas grill for no more than 10 minutes.

Grilling pork steaks

Cooking time for second side is shorter by 1-2 minutes. 3/4″ or thinner, 5-6 minutes maximum per side, thicker than 3/4″ 6-7 minutes maximum per side.

After 2 minutes grilling on a side, rotate chops 45 degrees for even cooking.

Turn over when juices pool on upper surface and meat appears to be cooked half-way through, brush the cooked side (top) top with apricot jam.
