Today I'm making a southern favorite Grilled Pork Steaks on the Pit Boss Pellet Grill along with a Monroe County dipping sauce. (a.k.a. Monroe County Pork Steaks).
What's a pork steak? Well, you take a pork shoulder and slice 1/4" or so slices, a.k.a. "pork steaks". What's a Monroe County Pork steak? That's a pork steak smoked over hickory wood and mopped with a special vinegar-based sauce, originating from Monroe County, Kentucky.
2 to 8 pork steaks
2 cups distilled white vinegar
1 stick unsalted butter
4 teaspoons ground black pepper
4 teaspoons cayenne pepper
4 teaspoons Kosher salt
Meat Church Honey Bacon Rub to taste
Season the pork steaks with Meat Church Honey Bacon Rub.
Set up your Pit Boss Pellet Grill on the smoke setting using Hickory Pellets (or set your smoker to 200 degrees F) and smoke for 50 minutes.
While the pork steaks are smoking, melt the butter over medium to medium high heat.
Add the vinegar, black pepper, cayenne pepper, salt and bring to simmer for 20 minutes.
Now, increase the pellet grill temperature to 350 degrees and place the pork steaks back on the pellet grill.
After 5 minutes turn the pork steaks over and apply the mopping sauce.
After 5 more minutes, removed the pork steaks from the Pit Boss Pellet Grill.
Dip the pork steaks in the remaining Monroe County Dipping Sauce and serve!
