The Easiest Pork Marinade Recipe:

What is this secret ingredient we use when we grill pork steaks? Condensed French Onion Soup.

I use this ingredient in so many different ways, including French Onion Sloppy Joes, French Onion Rice Casserole, French Onion Sliders, French Onion Shepherd’s Pie. Canned French Onion Soup is so very versatile, and I always keep several cans on hand in my pantry.

This pork steak marinade recipe is as easy as opening the can of soup, pouring it over the pork, refrigerating, and grilling.

Tips for a Perfect Grilled Pork Steak

Here are several secrets to a perfectly grilled pork shoulder steak:

  • Marinate for at least 30 minutes, preferably several hours to overnight. Marinades contain ingredients to help break down the tough meat fibers.
  • Do not overcook; this is the trick to any grilled pork. It’s ok to have a little pink left in pork after grilling.
  • Let the meat rest on a plate for a few minutes before cutting so that all the pork juices reabsorb into the meat fibers; this keeps it juicy!

I always marinate pork before grilling. If you don’t have any French Onion Soup on hand, try my other Grilled Pork Shoulder Steak Marinade.

My family (including me) prefers pork steak over beef steak, and this recipe is one of the reasons why. The flavors of the French Onion soup absorb into the pork steak after marinating. Serve along side some summer vegetables (like Mom’s Cucumber’s and Onions) and some grilled Naan, and dinner is served.

How to Marinate Pork for Grilling:

  1. Place thawed pork in a deep container (with a lid) or a large zip lock bag.
  2. Pour Condensed French Onion Soup over meat, and turn to coat all sides of the pork.
  3. Cover or seal tightly.
  4. Refrigerate for a minimum 2 hours or overnight.
  5. Grill and enjoy!

Notes About Easy Pork Steak Marinade:

  • This may be the easiest pork marinade ever! Use it on pork steak, pork chops, pork loin, etc.
  • The longer you let the meat marinate, the more tender and flavorful it becomes. Try prepping it the night before.
  • Condensed French Onion Soup is found in the same aisle as the condensed cream and tomato soups at the supermarket.
  • I use a large marinating container like this one or a large resealable plastic bag. Both allow you to flip and turn and shake the meat a few times to redistribute the marinade.
