Garlic, Soy & Honey Pork Shoulder Steaks

The most popular recipe on my blog has to be my Garlic, Soy & Honey Slow Cooked Pork Belly Slices. It’s a great full-flavoured sticky and spicy recipe that is bound to be a hit with any pork fan. It’s only downside is it does take quite a while to cook. This version allows you to have the same flavours in a fraction of the cooking-time.


The basic recipe is the same, all that needs to be adjusted is the cooking time and that it is cooked uncovered.


Pork shoulder steaks – about 2 per person depending on thickness

Chinese five spice – 2-3 teaspoons

Chilli flakes – 1-2 teaspoons

Garlic – 1 clove per steak (finely chopped)

Soy sauce – a few tabelspoons

Honey – a few tablespoons

Equipment: Knife, chopping board, baking tray, tongs.


  1. Place the pork shoulder steaks in the baking tray and season with the five spice and chilli flakes.
  2. Add the garlic, soy, and honey and make sure the meat is well coated in the mixture.
  3. Cover and leave to marinade for as long as you can.
  4. Cook in a preheated oven at 160°C/Fan 140°C/Gas 3 for 20-30 minutes, depending on the thickness of the steaks. Turn halfway through cooking time.
  5. Turn the oven up to 210°C/Fan 190°C/Gas 7. If there is a lot of excess liquid pour some off into a mug, leaving it about 1cm deep. You can keep the sauce warm or thicken it in a pan, bringing it to the boil with a little cornflour. It’s great poured over the cooked steaks or some rice.
  6. Drizzle with another tablespoon of honey if you want them extra sticky. Return to the oven for another 10-15 minutes.
