We are so excited to share with you this revolutionary approach to preparing the world-renowned Delmonico steak.

We love a good juicy steak. There’s no doubt about that.  But when the highly acclaimed pork farmer, geneticist, businessman, and giant in the culinary industry Steve Kerns of Mangalitsa Estates shared this particular cut of meat with us, we became instant fans. The taste is like nothing we’ve ever had. He has revolutionized pork in a way that you just have to taste and experience to understand what we are saying.

There are some cuts of meat that are so delicious on their own they require hardly any other ingredients to bring out its amazing taste.

This Delmonico Pork Steak from Mangalitsa Estates is one of those cuts of meat.

Red in color and beautifully marbling is just the beginning.


One of the things we love so much that Steve Kerns with Mangalitsa Estates does is to deliver cuts of pork that you don’t typically see.

A Delmonico steak originated with the iconic Delmonico Restaurant in New York City in the mid-1800’s.

It was (and still is) a tender cut of beef that the head chef of the restaurant would serve to patrons. It is similar to a ribeye or New York strip steak.

Mangalitsa is a breed of pork that is on par with Japanese Kobe beef. Unbelievable taste and texture that is out of this world.

The taste of this pork steak is so incredible that you really need very little preparation.

We hit the steaks with a little salt and pepper and soak in Worcestershire sauce for about an hour.

We grill them over high heat for about 4 to 5 minutes per side. That’s all that’s needed to render one of the best cuts of meat we have ever made or consumed. Honestly.

Steve Kerns created Mangalitsa Estates in a mission to create pork products that were more than just “the other white meat.”

He brought incredible flavor and depth to the table that we just find amazing.

You’ll take one bite, and see exactly what we mean. We love to serve this Delmonico Pork Steak alongside our Balsamic Roasted Potatoes.

This pork steak was the exception to that rule. It’s difficult to describe how amazing this steak is.

Now, we said this Delmonico Pork Steak is so good on its own, nothing else is really needed to make it better.

Well, that is true.

But, we can’t leave well enough alone. These steaks are amazing with our Homemade Steak Sauce!

  • Gas or charcoal grill


  • 2 10 oz pork steaks
  • 2 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tsp Kosher salt
  • ½ tsp black pepper freshly ground
  • steak sauce optional, for serving


  • Sprinkle the pork steaks with salt and pepper and place in a small dish. Pour the Worcestershire sauce over the steaks and cover with aluminum foil. Place in the refrigerator for 1 hour.
  • Heat your grill (or grill pan on the stove) to medium-high heat. Add the steaks and cook until internal temperature reaches 145 F. About 4 to 5 minutes on each side.
  • Remove the steaks from the grill and let rest for 5 minutes on a cutting board. Serve hot with steak sauce.



Pork steaks vary in size which means cook time varies, too.  We recommend using an instant-read thermometer to ensure you reach an internal temperature of 145 F.
We think these steaks are wonderful when served with Roasted Balsamic Potatoes.

  • I have looked and looked and I can not find where this place is located. I am from Ohio and would love to know where in Ohio is this Mangalista Estates. Only thing I find is in Clearfield Iowa. Please point me in the right direction.

    Oh my gosh you guys, this recipe is superb! These pork steaks are so exceptional, my husband and I just kept staring at each other in disbelief while we were eating. I have always been a reluctant pork chop eater, but a recipe for Delmonico Pork Steaks was too intriguing to pass up. Our butcher was even impressed! And the steak sauce is to die for – we will be making it regularly. I will always love Delmonico beef steaks, but now that I have this recipe, I’ve got something a little unexpected to serve the next time we have friends over! We had some baby red potatoes in the garden that went PERFECTLY with the steaks. Can’t thank you enough – you’ve hit it out of the park once again!

    • Katherin, you just made us so so so happy! We are ecstatic for this cut of pork, too! We were not sure ourselves, but trusted our friend Steve, who is one of the greatest pork farmers in the world. We’re so glad you gave them a try and thrilled to know that you and your hubby loved them as much as we do! And thank so much for letting us know and for the wonderful review. That means the world to us!!! xoxox Kris & Wesley
