Who doesn’t love steak? But with premium beef cuts so expensive, it’s not something you can cook on a daily basis. Instead, why not give the less expensive (yet just as tasty) pork a chance to shine, just like an Angus ribeye? This recipe for Honey Pork Steaks does the trick, with a sweet garlicky marinade for extra flavor. Serve with asparagus, or if not available, French beans will work just as well. Then enjoy with garlic rice or buttered noodles, and a glass of red wine, too.



Honey Pork Steaks

Serves 4


  • 4 pork steaks (pork kasim or tenderloin)
  • 4 teaspoons honey
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1 tablespoon cooking oil
  • 2 tablespoons butter, divided
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 1 bundle asparagus spears, trimmed


1. Marinate pork steaks in honey, garlic, vinegar, and salt. Let marinate for about 30 minutes.

2. In a skillet, heat oil and 1 tablespoon butter. Pan-fry pork steaks until golden in color, about 3 minutes each side.

3. In the same skillet, melt another 1 tablespoon butter and sauté garlic. Add asparagus and cook for 3 to 5 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.

4. Serve with warm rice or buttered noodles.
