What’s for Dinner: Honey Grilled Pork Steak with Baked Sweet Potato Fries and Maple Sauce

It quit raining long enough this week to get back out to the grill. I had some pork steak in the freezer, and it’s a good cut to cook on the grill because it’s thin and cooks quickly.

Honey Grilled Pork Steak Recipe

Pork Steaks
2 cups honey
soy sauce

Pour honey into a bowl. Add soy sauce, stirring until sauce is a syrupy consistency. Place chops in a bowl or cake pan and cover with 1/2 of the sauce. (Place balance of sauce in a sauce pan.)

Let the steaks marinate in refrigerator for as long as you wish. They can marinate all day for a stronger flavor or they can be dipped and grilled. Either way works.

Simmer the sauce in the saucepan over low heat until thickened. Store in a glass jar in refrigerator until needed.

Place steaks on grill, brushing fresh marinade onto steaks as needed (use the marinade which was stored in the jar but pour it out into a bowl before brushing so as not to contaminate the remaining gravy.)

Cook until juices no longer run pink when pierced by a fork.

When chops are finished, pour sauce from the jar into a gravy dish (sauce will be thin) and serve steaks accompanied by sauce

Note: Discard marinating liquid – do not use for basting or as gravy, as this liquid contains raw pork juices.

The pork steaks turned out great. The marinade and sauce tastes like teriyaki, and grilling really brings out the flavor.

I had sweet potato French fries a a local restaurant and loved them. I wanted to try to make something similar at home, but with out deep frying.

Baked Sweet Potato Fries Recipe

Non stick cooking spray
1 lb medium sweet potatoes
1 Tbsp butter, melted
1/4 tsp seasoned salt
Dash ground nutmeg

Lightly coat 15 x 10 x 1 inch baking pan with cooking spray. Scrub potatoes; cut lengthwise into quarters. Cut each quarter into two wedges. Arrange potatoes in a single layer in pan. Combine margarine or butter, salt, and nutmeg. Brush onto potatoes. Bake at 425 degrees for 20-30 minutes or until brown and tender.

I thought the sweet potatoes would be really yummy if there was some kind of sauce to dip them in. I found this recipe, and it went really well with them.
