How To Cook Steak In The Oven

No need to get out the grill—you can cook a perfect steak right in your oven.

How To Cook Steak In The Oven

Cold meat will seize in a hot environment. Let it hang outside of the fridge for about 30 minutes while you preheat your oven.

Bring Your Steak To Room Temperature

This rule mostly applies to thick cuts of meat and is key for a beautifully seared and caramelized crust. If you're starting with a cold pan, the meat will turn an unappetizing shade of brownish-grey and will be totally one note in texture.

If You're Using A Skillet, Get It Hot

Rub some olive oil onto meat, then use plenty of salt—more than you think you need. Salt brings out flavor, people—don't be shy.

Season The Steak Generously

Again, only if you're working with a big hunk of steak, sear one side in your (very hot) skillet, just until it's dark and the bottom starts to pull away, making it easy to flip. Once you turn it, it's time for the oven.

Sear It On One Side!

For thicker cuts of meat, in your 450° oven, you should expect about 10 minutes. For thinner cuts of meat, under the broiler, it's about 6 minutes per side. (Flip it on the sheet pan halfway through.)

Finish It In The Oven

Top Tip: Your steak will continue to cook while resting, so air on the side of caution.
