Grilled Pork Steaks

Everyone asks if I cook at home, the answer is whenever I can.  I tend to work long hours - a standard day is 10 to 12 hours, and some days run long!  So when I get home dinner has to be quick and tasty.  Recently I've found a new use for an old item:  I bought a boneless pork shoulder roast, which was silly of me, as if I have time to cook it for 2 hours and still be awake.  So what do you do?  I cut it down into steaks and threw it on the BBQ.  It was awesome.  Just rubbed it with a dry rub and glazed at the last minute with BBQ sauce.  It was better then country style ribs and cheaper.  Grill both sides approx. 7 minutes, depending on thickness.

Of course a 4 pound roast is more than 2 steaks, so guess what we ate the next night, yes pork steaks.  This time I grilled again but rubbed with soy and garlic and finished with a teriyaki sauce.  To add a little wow to the plate I grilled a couple of spears of pineapple and made an Asian salad - dinner in less than 20 minutes.

The 4 pound roast cost about $12.00 ($3.00 per pound), yielded 4 meals for 2 (hubby had leftovers too) $3.00 per meal and quick.  I like it.  Hubby also commented that it was so tender that when he made a sandwich with it, the 3/4 inch thick slice he used was as easy to bite through as pulled pork.
