      Hi TJ!

      I have never tried it with bone-in pork steaks, but think you should be fine. You might have to adjust your cooking time a bit. If you give it a try, let me know how it turns out!

      Hi Gina!

      For this recipe, you cook for 4-6 hours on low. As always, use a meat thermometer to make sure that your meat has reached safe temperatures before serving. Enjoy!

    I made it today using the honey produced from my husbands bees. I cut a medium onion and added it to the bottom of the crock pot. The meat is so tender and has a wonderfully caramelized sweetness. I’m making white rice and mixed veggies to go with it.

      Hi Tina!

      I’m so glad you enjoyed it as much as we did! I am so jealous of your fresh honey! My high school biology teachers always brought in honey from his bees. I was hooked immediately!

    Is a pork steak what we in Ky refer to as a ham steak? The meat that would be ham if it were processed or smoked.

      Hi John!

      While I do LOVE a good ham steak (Momma used to make them over fried potatoes when we were kids…yum!), these pork steaks are different. It is also called a blade steak. Pork Be Inspired explains it better than I can. Here is a link to their page on pork steaks: http://www.porkbeinspired.com/cuts/blade-steakpork-steak/. Enjoy!

    This looks good. Did you brown your pork steaks before you put them in the crockpot? From the picture, it looks like there are small pieces of some other ingredient not listed…..

      I did not brown them first. Just dump and go! No extra ingredients. The small pieces you see are from the meat. Enjoy!

    Sorry to ask what might seem a dumb question, but could the pork steaks be frozen or do they need to be defrosted prior to placing them in the crock pot?

      Hi Mara!

      I would recommend always using thawed meat. It makes it easier to make sure your meat is cooked to the proper temperature in the center without drying out the outer meat. Enjoy!

FAQs

Should pork steaks be cooked fast or slow? ›

Pork Steak on the Stove

Start out on medium heat, letting the pork steaks cook slowly until they reach 140 degrees F internally.

Do you need to add liquid to crock pot when cooking pork? ›

Add about 1/4 Cup Liquid Per Pound of Pork

Aromatics aside, the actual liquid you put in the crock pot is what will flavor the pork the most.

Is it better to cook pork in a crock pot on high or low? ›

Unlike pots set in or on a stove, you can safely leave a slow cooker unattended. You can even leave your house. Set the cooker to low; the high setting will boil the meat instead of braise it, so it's only a quicker trip to an undesirable outcome.

Do I have to sear pork before crock pot? ›

Preparing the pork

I also recommend browning the meat slightly prior to slow cooking which will help maximise the flavour. However, this is a step that can be left out if you don't have enough time.

How long should pork steaks be cooked for? ›

Heat a heavy-based or non-stick frying pan to around medium heat. Oil the steak on both sides, rub in and season with salt, pepper and anything else you fancy. Put the pork steak in the hot pan. Keep a close eye on it – it should take roughly 6 -7 minutes on each side, depending on the thickness of the steaks.

How do you keep pork steaks from getting tough? ›

Try a Marinade or Brine. A marinade or brine can introduce more moisture or lots of flavor into your meat before you cook it. A marinade is a sauce that introduces extra flavor to your pork, depending on the aromatics or herbs you choose to include. A brine pulls more moisture into the meat, which keeps your pork juicy ...

What liquid should I cook pork in? ›

Water: A cup of water helps the pork tenderloin stay moist during cooking. Wine: Red wine lends complexity and enhances the flavor. Soy sauce: Soy sauce adds savory flavor.

Is 4 hours on high the same as 8 hours on low? ›

The difference between "High" and "Low" on slow cookers seems to differ with every brand and model. One thing that is consistent, though, is that food takes seven to eight hours to reach a simmer point (around 210°) on low; versus three to four hours on high.

What is the best liquid to cook pulled pork in? ›

Transfer everything to a large slow cooker and add a splash of liquid — water is great, but so is broth, apple juice, or beer if you have them handy. Cover and cook on low until the meat is tender and pulls apart easily.

Should you flip pork in a crock pot? ›

Close the Proofer and allow the pork to cook for a total of 10 or 11 hours. Midway during the slow cook process you can turn the pork over once. After 10 hours check the interior of the pork with a thermometer. We recommend a temperature of 195-200 °F / 90-93 °C for tender, juicy pork which pulls apart easily.

Can you put raw pork in crock pot? ›

Can You Put Raw Meat in the Slow Cooker? It is safe to add raw meat to a crock pot or slow cooker if it will be cooked through completely. Tough cuts like pot roast, pork shoulder, and stew meat can be browned first and then cooked through in the cooker or simply added to the crock pot.

What happens if you don't brown meat before slow cooker? ›

Browning Is Better

And if you dredge the meat in flour before you brown it, your sauce will thicken up to make a gravy. You should always brown ground beef or any ground meat in a skillet before adding it to your slow cooker to prevent the meat from clumping up or from adding excess grease to your cooked dish.

Does pork get more tender the longer you simmer it? ›

A lean cut of pork does not get delicious like that, but it does get tender if you cook it long enough once you've gone past the point of cooking it until it's just done (around 140-145 degrees).

Does cooking pork slow make it tender? ›

The Benefits of Cooking 'Slow-and-Low'

Not only does it make the meat far juicier and more tender but it also works with all kinds of meats. No matter your preference, this cooking method works well with whole cuts of pork, beef, lamb, and even veal.

How do you tenderize pork steaks quickly? ›

Lightly dampen the surface of your pork with water just before cooking, then sprinkle evenly with about 1 teaspoon of meat tenderizer per pound of meat. Pierce the meat with a fork at roughly 12 inch (1.3 cm) intervals and begin cooking.

What is the best temperature for pork steaks? ›

Cook all organ and variety meats (such as heart, kidney, liver, tongue, and chitterlings) to 160 °F (71.1 °C). Cook all raw pork steaks, chops, and roasts to a minimum internal temperature of 145°F (62.8 °C) as measured with a food thermometer before removing meat from the heat source.
