Grilled Pork Steaks with Mustard Rub
I love pork roasted or grilled with a simple mustard rub. Although I usually use Dijon mustard, in this recipe I prefer regular yellow mustard for its fresh, bright flavor. Sometimes, I add herbs. This is simple food at its best. The recipe works equally well with pork chops, adjusting grilling time as needed, and you can use the broiler if grilling is not an option. Additionally, if serving a larger group that includes guests who do not eat pork, make some boneless chicken breasts or thighs using the same method. Make this quick and easy main dish on a busy weeknight or for a special outdoor event in any amount needed.
- 4 bone-in pork steaks, 6 to 8 ounces each
- 2 to 3 tablespoons yellow prepared mustard
- Garlic powder to taste
- Salt and pepper to taste
- Olive oil
Pat the pork dry with paper towels. Spread mustard over both sides. Season both sides with garlic powder, salt and pepper. Drizzle both sides with olive oil. Let set while heating grill (or broiler) on high heat. When grill is hot, grill pork until done, being careful not to overcook, about 5 minutes per side, depending on thickness. (If you are using thick steaks, reduce the heat to medium-high and cook about 8 minutes per side.) Remove from grill, tent with foil, and let rest about 5 minutes before serving.
