Treacle And Spice Marinated Pork Steaks…

Are you looking for some tasty BBQ ideas?

Pork steaks never tasted so good!

They’re marinated in a rich treacly mixture, barbecued or grilled, then served with a lively, colourful salsa.

How To Make Treacle And Spice Marinated Pork Steaks:

Preparation 10 mins, plus 2-3 hours to marinate
Cooking 10 mins

Serves 4


  • 2 tbsp Lyle’s Black Treacle
  • 1 tbsp toasted sesame oil
  • Finely grated zest and juice of 1 lime
  • 1 red chilli, deseeded and finely sliced
  • 1 tbsp finely chopped lemongrass
  • 4 spring onions, finely sliced
  • 1 tbsp grated fresh root ginger
  • 4 pork loin steaks
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper

For The Salsa :

  • Finely grated zest and juice of 1 lime
  • 1 tsp finely chopped red chilli
  • 1 small red onion, finely sliced
  • 1 ripe mango, pitted, peeled and chopped
  • 1 ripe avocado, pitted, peeled and chopped
  • 100g pomegranate seeds

How to make this recipe:

  1. For the marinade, put the Lyle’s Black Treacle into a glass or plastic bowl with the sesame oil, lime zest and juice, chilli, lemongrass, spring onions and ginger. Add the pork steaks, season with salt and pepper, then turn to coat. Cover and refrigerate for 2-3 hours (or overnight if preferred).
  2. When ready to cook, Preheat the barbecue or grill. Cook the pork steaks for 4-5 minutes per side, basting often with the marinade.
  3. While the pork steaks are cooking, make the salsa by mixing together the lime zest and juice, chilli, red onion, mango, avocado and pomegranate seeds. Season with a pinch of salt.
  4. Serve the pork steaks with the salsa.

Cook’s tip:

  • Make the salsa shortly before serving, so that the avocado doesn’t go brown.
