Hello there, here is a recipe from Juggy that has been around the forum for at least ten years. If you don't want to do the entire recipe you can get some technique ideas for cooking and you can cook them in the oven this way. They are sliced from the butt. I have never cooked them but 100% sure Juggy knows what's up with pork steaks.
2 cups Wishbone Spicy French Dressing
1 cup lemon juice
2 cups apple juice
2 cups cherry cola
1 cup Woeber's Spicy mustard
1/4 cup habenero hot sauce
You can reserve some of the marinade for a baste if you so desire. I don't basted the steaks for the first hour or two of the cooking time.
Due to the acidic content of the marinade, I would not marinate the pork steaks more than eight hours or the meat will turn to mush. Because of the sugar in the marinade, I do not cook the meat directly over the coals or above 250ºF. I usually use the kettle for this but the WSM works too. I like to use cherry wood for the smoke flavor.
Depending on the thickness of the steaks, they take anywhere from two to four hours to cook. You won't be able to render all the fat out between the muscle areas like you do a pork shoulder, but quite a bit of the fat will cook out. I consider the steaks done once you can easily separate the muscle areas. Once you can pull two areas of the meat apart, apply the finish sauce of your choice and give the sauce a little time to thicken on meat.
