Honey-garlic pork ribeye steak

You might not be completely familiar with pork steaks but they have become a firm favorite in our house. Not only are they easier to cook than pork chops (the connective tissue means they stay juicier and don’t dry out so quickly), they’re also super versatile and absolutely delicious.

They work very well cooked with a sweet, sticky sauce and this honey-garlic sauce is a guaranteed crowd pleaser. Serve with steamed greens, these pork ribeye steaks make an excellent easy weeknight dinner.

How to cook pork ribeye steak

Sear the steaks in a hot pan until well-browned on both sides. Mix honey, soy sauce (or Tamari or Coconut aminos for a gluten free version), chilli flakes/red pepper flakes, lemon juice and minced garlic and pour into the pan. Allow to cook and reduce, basting the pork with the sauce, until the sauce is thick and sticky and the pork is cooked through.

Are pork steaks and pork chops the same?

Pork chops and pork ribeye steaks are very similar. Pork ribeye is also cut from the loin but is boneless and cut from the rib area of the loin. If you can’t find pork ribeye steaks, pork chops can easily be used instead.

  1. I’m making this tonight with a roasted beet salad and garlic mashed potatoes. Do you have a wine pairing suggestion?

  2. Is that parsley or cilantro that you use on top. Making tonight and I have both so just wondering.

  3. I just wanted to say this is the best recipe I have tried in a while. That said, I should clarify I did not follow the recipe exactly as written. At 70 years old I consider recipes ideas or starting points. I did follow the basic recipe, but made some changes based on my personal tastes. That said, this is a wonderful meal. It will become part of my rotation. The cooking times were perfect, the meat moist, tender and delicious. Thank you for a wonderful surprise!

  4. Great recipe, the steaks were super tender. I have always struggled with cooking pork chops, so to have the steaks as an alternative is brilliant – thank you!

  5. I just did some of your pork recipes. They all were delectable, but I prefer honey garlic pork ribeye steak. Highly recommend everyone to try it!

  6. Best ever! The only thing I would have changed is that I would have marinated them in the sauce prior and made extra for dipping…because it was good!

  7. Must-try everyone!
    I’ve made this many time for kids. They seem addicted of pork steak. Super delicious.
    Anyway, I am so happy to see that!

  8. Turned out delicious! My husband and son really enjoyed it. Im going to attempt to turn it into a stir fry next go around.

    1. Should I double the sauce ingredients if I’m cooking double the meat? Or maybe only increase it a bit, like by one third?

  9. I’ve made this twice since seeing your recipe. My kids love it and ask for it all the time. Super delicious.

  10. Had this for dinner and we loved it. My son had two helpings and said this was the best pork he’s every tried. Great recipe!

  11. Recipe sounds really good, but I have never heard of pork ribeye steaks. Do I have to speak to the meat department
    people about them?
