While I'm away on vacation, I've got wonderful blogging friends covering my kitchen. Today, Reesa, from MommaLew.com, will show you her special secrets on how to oven cook steak to juicy, delicious perfection!
Reesa is a fantastic person with a heart full of glittery gold, and I'm so grateful that she offered to help me out this week.
Without further delay, here's Reesa to explain how to oven cook steak!
Living in a condominium, we unfortunately miss out on grilling in the summer. Over the years, we've compensated with traditional grilling options by making them on the stove top. But, steaks? Steaks were a problem. They never came out perfect. I spent a long time not buying steaks because I just couldn't figure out how to make them tender and juicy. I recently decided to give them another shot and I am glad I did! I finally figured out how to oven cook steak!
I used T-bone steaks. When I decided to give steak a try again at home, I asked the butcher what cut of meat I should buy that wouldn’t break my budget. He recommended the T-bone steaks.
How to Oven Cook Steak
- The first step is let them come to room temperature after thawing or being refrigerated. This usually takes about an hour or so.
- After the hour, you want to coat your steaks on both sides in about 1 tablespoon of olive oil. Sprinkle seasoning salt and pepper on both sides.
NOTE FROM BECCA: Salt & pepper are perfect seasonings to use, but if you're looking to add a kick of spice, try my mustard peppercorn rub when you oven cook steak. I think you'll love it!
- Pre-heat a cast iron skillet or heavy pan on your stove top to get it very hot. Add your steaks to the pan after it has heated and sear them on both sides, for 1 minute each.
- Set your oven to broil.
- After they have seared, put your steaks onto a jelly roll pan or a cookie sheet. I like to wrap the pan in aluminum foil so nothing ruins my pans. I then pour whatever juice was in the stove top pan onto the meat.
- You want to cook your meat until it reaches approximately 140 degrees. Be sure to flip the steaks every 2-3 minutes of cooking. How long your steaks need to cook is dependent on how thick they are. Usually my half inch steaks cook to my liking at around 15 minutes. After taking them out of the oven, make sure to let them rest for a few minutes before cutting and serving.
