My company had a 93 Taurus that did the same thing after the rack and pinion was replaced. The garage that worked on it put the pressure and return lines on backwards causing the fluid to boil and lots of smoke after only about 10 minutes driving. The pump wound up going bad and the rack blew out all the seals, so they had to replace everything again. It only took about 15 minutes of total driving to cause this, so I doubt it's your problem, but I wanted to point it out in case you recently had the steering worked on.
