Marinade for Steak in the Oven


- 2 medium-sized steak cuts (such as ribeye, sirloin, or flank steak)

- 7 tablespoons of Hunter’s Mid-West Cowboy Marinade

- 8 tablespoons of Hunter’s Texas Seasoning


  1. Marinate the Steak:

    - Rub the marinade evenly on both sides of the beef, including the sides

    - Place the steak cuts in a shallow dish or a resealable plastic bag.

    - Cover the dish or seal the bag and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes, or ideally, overnight for maximum flavor.

  2. Preheat the Oven:

    - Preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C).

  3. Prepare the Steak for Baking:

    - Remove the marinated steak from the refrigerator and let it sit at room temperature for about 20-30 minutes.
    - Place the steak on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or foil. If desired, you can also place a wire rack on the baking sheet and then place the steak on top for better airflow and even cooking.
    -Season the steak evenly on both sides using Hunter’s Texas Seasoning

  4. Bake the Steak:

    - Transfer the baking sheet to the preheated oven.
    - Bake the steak for about 12-17 minutes for medium doneness, or adjust the cooking time based on your preferred level of doneness around 140-145°F (60-63°C) for medium.
    - Remember to flip the steak halfway through the cooking time for even cooking.

  5. Rest and Serve:

    - Once the steak reaches your desired level of doneness, remove it from the oven and transfer it to a cutting board.
    Let the steak rest for about 5-10 minutes to allow the juices to redistribute.
    - Slice the steak against the grain and serve hot with your favorite side dishes.
    Enjoy your delicious oven-baked steak with flavorful marinade!
