Baked BBQ Pork Steak Recipe in the Oven: Pork Steak Recipes can be so easy and this one can be made with little effort, showing you how and how to bake!
Pork Steak Recipe
If you have pork steaks or pork shoulders sitting in your freezer or refrigerator, then you may have happened upon here while trying to find one of the BEST pork steak recipes you can find, for an easy dinner recipe.
Well friend, I think you’re in the right place and that you’re going to love how easy and how delicious this pork steak recipe is.
If you also saw my slow cooker bbq pork steaks recipe, then you may already know that cooking them slowly, over a longer period of time makes the pork steak meat literally fall off of the bone.
But when you need something a bit quicker, baking pork steaks in the oven is an alternative that definitely won’t disappoint you and will also leave you with tender pork steaks.
How to Cook Pork Steak
Now of course you don’t have to cook pork steaks with bbq sauce, but here in the midwest, it’s really hard to cook them/eat them any other way.
Feel free to have fun creating sauces and using different spices for your pork steaks, but if you’re wanting to bake your steaks in the oven, then this is a great reference to find out how long to cook them. You can find the full recipe with an ingredient list and instructions at the bottom of this post.
Baked BBQ Pork Steak Recipe in the Oven
Another thing I love about this recipe is that you can cook one pork steak up to as many as you want/need!
The day that I made these to take photos for the blog, I only made two steaks, as it was just the right amount for what we needed that day…however I’ve created the recipe in the recipe card below to reflect 4 pork steaks, as that would be more common for a family of 4.
Start by preheating your oven to 400º and then cover your pork steaks with the salt and pepper.
Next, line a baking pan (large enough to fit the number of steaks you’re cooking, so they don’t overlap) with aluminum foil.
Drizzle a layer of barbeque sauce on the aluminum foil where you’ll place each steak.
Place your steaks down on the foil and sauce, and then cover steaks with remaining bbq sauce.
Bake the pork steaks uncovered for 50-60 minutes, (on the middle rack) or until the internal temperature of the steaks reaches 145 degrees.
NOTE: Oven temperatures can vary, and some have reported that they prefer baking at 350 for 50-60 minutes, or checking the internal temp after 30 minutes to avoid over-cooking.
Meal Planning for the Week?
Since the oven is hot, consider making burgers in the oven too, so you can eat on them all week! Just re-heat and serve!
