Introducing BBQ Steak Cooked to Perfection!

Discover how to achieve that signature sear and juicy tenderness using your oven's magic. Whether for a crowd or an intimate dinner, oven-baked BBQ steak offers unmatched convenience without compromising on flavor.


  • 2 steaks of your choice (such as ribeye, sirloin, or filet mignon)
  • 1/2 cup of Hunter's Mid-West Cowboy BBQ Sauce and Marinade
  • Olive oil
  • Hunter's Texas Seasonings or your favorite steak rub.


  1. Preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C).
  2. Take the steaks out of the refrigerator and let them come to room temperature for about 30 minutes. This helps them cook more evenly.
  3. Pat the steaks dry with paper towels to remove excess moisture.
  4. Rub the steak generously on both sides using Hunter's Mid-West Cowboy BBQ Sauce
  5. Season both sides generously with Hunter's Texas Seasoning.
  6. Heat a skillet or oven-safe pan over high heat. Once hot, add a drizzle of olive oil.
  7. Place the steaks in the hot skillet and sear them for 2-3 minutes on each side, until nicely browned.
  8. If using an oven-safe skillet, you can transfer it directly to the preheated oven. Otherwise, transfer the steaks to a baking dish.
  9. Brush the steaks with the Mid-West Cowboy BBQ sauce, covering them evenly.
  10. Place the baking dish or skillet in the preheated oven and bake for 5-10 minutes, depending on your desired level of doneness and the thickness of the steaks. Use a meat thermometer to check for doneness – 145°F (63°C) for medium-rare, 160°F (71°C) for medium, and 170°F (77°C) for well-done.
  11. Once cooked to your liking, remove the steaks from the oven and let them rest for a few minutes before serving.
  12. Serve your oven-baked BBQ steaks hot, alongside your favorite sides and enjoy!
