    Steps

    • 1

      Slather the pork steaks on all sides with the mustard and season with the Traeger Pork & Poultry Rub. (The mustard will help keep the pork moist, but the taste will be unnoticeable in the final product.)
    • 2

      When ready to cook, set the Traeger temperature to 180˚F and preheat, lid closed for 15 minutes. For optimal flavor, use Super Smoke if available.

      Let the steaks rest for 3 minutes before serving. Enjoy!
