Maine Maple Glazed Pork Loin Steaks


4-6 Pork loin steaks approximately 1 ½ thick

¼ cup butter, melted

¼ cup white vinegar

1/3 cup Maine Maple Syrup

¼ cup brown sugar

1 tablespoon corn starch

4-6 Single serving sugar maple oval or rectangle planks

Place planks in water to soak for two hours.  Place pork loin steaks in a recloseable freezer bag.  Melt butter.  In a separate bowl mix white vinegar, maple syrup, brown sugar, and corn starch.  Add melted butter and mix thoroughly.  Add mixture to loin steaks and marinate in the refrigerator for two hours.

Turn on oven to BROIL.  Place planks on cookie sheet. Lightly oil planks with olive oil. Place loin steaks on the planks and put under the broiler for approximately 10 minutes. Flip loin steaks over on the planks and liberally brush on remaining marinate.  Finish for another 10 minutes.  Serve directly on the planks.  A sautéed green bean, summer squash, and tomato medley with rice are great pairings.
