Great way to grill pork! Full of flavor, moist and tender. Using tenderloin and smashing it to a steak thickness really provided a juicy and tender cut of meat. Cooked these on the grill really enjoyed - thanks for sharing the recipe!

Juicy and yummy! Paprika and pork go so well together. I had to use regular paprika this time. I am so disappointed that I couldn't find the smoked paprika. But once I do I will definitely be making these pork steaks again. I just know the smoked paprika will add more depth to the flavor. Thanks for sharing.

Very good. I would add some onion powder to the mixture, but everything else was very good. I did it under the broiler, but I bet the grill would have been even better. Thanks! :)
