How to oven cook steak to perfection

You feel like having a steak (t-bone, bone-in…) for dinner, but there is a problem: it’s Winter. How do you enjoy a steak dinner during the freezing cold days? There is always an alternative. Learning how to oven cook steak isn’t difficult, but it definitely needs attention that it doesn’t need when you’re grilling it outside.


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, coat your steaks on both sides in about 1 tablespoon of olive oil. Sprinkle seasoning salt and pepper on both sides.  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. Wrapping the pan in aluminum foil is a great idea so nothing ruins your pans. You can 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 will depend on how thick they are.


After taking them out of the oven, make sure to let them rest for a few minutes before cutting and serving. And there you go. Enjoy a flavourful steak during the cold Winter days.
