Pork steaks are stuffed with homemade sausage before being topped with fresh sage and thyme then sprinkled with a hot and sweet rub. Smoked and then broiled it has many layers of flavor.

The sausage seasoning is subtle yet complements the pork flavors including additions of nutmeg, cayenne, and white pepper. Try frying off a small amount and tasting before stuffing to see if you like the flavor balance.

Fresh sage and thyme are used to cover the sausage stuffing, if you don’t like these try other fresh herbs or simple don;t do and sprinkle with the rub.

Pork Brine


Stuffed Pork Steak


  • 1/4 cup apple juice
  • 1 stick butter melted
  • 2 tablespoon brown sugar


  • 1-gallon ziplock bag
  • smoker
  • foil half pan
  • 2 applewood chunks


Pork Brine

  • Lightly mash the garlic with the side of a heavy knife, remove the garlic peel, and rough chop. Crush the black peppercorns lightly to release their aroma. Remove the leaves from the fresh thyme and rough chop.
  • Place the garlic, peppercorns, thyme, sugar, salt, hot rub, and bay leaf in a gallon ziplock bag, then add the water and shake well to combine.
  • Make a slit in each of the pork steaks suitable for stuffing.
  • Place the pork steaks into brining bag then press out excess air and chill for at least one hour but not more than 8 hours. Flip the bag at least once during this time to ensure an even brine.


  • In a large bowl add the pork, fresh nutmeg, hot rub, white pepper, cayenne pepper, sugar, and curing salt. Combine well by hand or with a sturdy spoon.
  • Cover the bowl with sausage mix with plastic wrap then chill while you brine your chops

Stuffed Pork Steak

  • Preheat the smoker to 275 degrees F (135 degrees C). When at temperature add two tennis-sized applewood chunks.
  • Remove pork chops from the brine then scrape away any brine ingredient adhering to the pork chop. Pat dry.
  • Divide the sausage mixture into four portions, one for each pork steak. Stuff the cut of each pork steak with the pork sausage mixture.
  • Lay sage leaves and thyme over the exposed sausage stuffing.
  • Mix the hot rub and brown sugar. Season the stuffed chops with this rub mixture evenly on all sides.
  • Place the stuffed pork steaks into the preheated smoker.
  • Smoke the stuffed pork steaks until the internal temps in the sausage and the chop is at about 140 degrees F (60 degrees C). This takes about 45 to 75 minutes depending on your pit and how cold the chops were when you put them in.

Wrapping Liquid

  • Combine the apple juice, butter, and brown sugar.
  • Remove the stuffed pork steaks from the smoker and place them in a half aluminum foil pan. Add the wrapping liquid by drizzeling lightly over the pork steaks.
  • Place the foil pan under a kitchen broiler until you get a nice char on the surface of the chops.
  • Flip over and repeat on the other side to get a nice char from your broiler.
  • Remove and let rest for 5 minutes.
  • Plate the stuffed pork steaks and drizzle the foil pan liquids. Garnish with some greens and serve hot.
