I would prefer a 1 step procedure. Sedulous my problem is the fonts are getting a few errors on letters p,g,y.
Actually, thinking of it, try this first. You'll need to download the program MKVextract (or iMKVextract if you're on a mac) and open the .mkv in question. If the file is like others with stylized subs, it should have the font files embedded in the mkv. You can tell MKVextract to extract only those files and then install those fonts on your computer. After you do that, I'd give handbrake another shot and see if it correctly hard-encodes the subs. As said by others, the re-encoding step is unavoidable if you want the subtitles hard-burned into the video.
