How to Make Baked BBQ Steak Fingers

The other day I was worn out, didn’t want to spend the money on delivery and had a serious craving for comfort food. I went to my fridge and noticed I had a bottle of Rudy’s BBQ sauce that was about to expire and some steaks I never used. I could make a standard steak and pour BBQ sauce on it, but I wanted comfort food. That’s when it hit me.

Let’s make steak fingers, but bake them instead of frying them to make them “healthier”. At least that’s what I’m pretending. I don’t know if this was a thing before, but they came out awesome and I’ll be making them again.

This recipe is incredible easy, quick and tastes awesome. I’ll definitely be making these baked BBQ steak fingers again for an appetizer, lunch, or a snack.  Let me know how they turn out for you.

  • Now dip the steak slices into the BBQ sauce and then run them through the breadcrumbs. You'll see on some of them I did a second dip in the BBQ sauce. Either way worked because you cover them in BBQ sauce again later anyways.
