How to Cook Steak - Best Tips: Quick Guide
Cooking the Steaks
We suggest using your indoor oven or outdoor grill to cook your steaks, whether it is a strip steak or ribeye steaks these methods should leave you with a great tasting meal!
First, remove the steaks from the refrigerator (even if they were marinating) and let them come to room temperature for approximately 30 minutes - it will help them cook more evenly.
How to cook steaks in the oven
- Heat a skillet on the stove with a bit of oil ( 1/2 Tablespoon or less.) When the oil is hot, sear each side of the steak(s) for approximately 1 minute to lock in the juices.
- At the same time, turn the oven onto the Broil setting.
- After searing, transfer to an oven-safe dish or skillet and place in the oven on the broil setting.
- Cook on broil for three minutes, remove the skillet (with an oven-safe glove) and flip the steak in the pan and return it to cook for another three minutes.
- When the steak has cooked for a total of six minutes, use a meat thermometer to test the temperature of the steak to make sure it's the desired degree of done. It's recommended to cook to 145 degrees F and let rest for 3 minutes (medium.)
- Heat the grill to high - whether it's charcoal or gas. If charcoal, you can tell it's ready when the coals have the ash covering the outsides.
- Prepare your steak with any dry rub ingredients.
- Next, we recommend, basting your steak with an herb & melted butter mixture.
- You are now ready to grill - place your steak on the hot grill and don't flip until it has charred marks, approximately 3 minutes.
- After approximately three minutes and with the grill lid still open, flip your steak and carefully re-apply the butter mixture to the side facing you & close the grill lid.
- Continue to repeat this process - three to four more times, in most cases, to achieve a medium-done steak. However, we recommend using a meat thermometer and taking into consideration the thickness of your steak.
Recommended internal temperature for fresh beef is 145 degrees F. (and let it rest for 3 minutes prior to slicing.)
