A PERFECT OVEN GRILLED STEAK RECIPE

Oven Grilled Steak is a foolproof and easy way to make a juicy steak in the oven. Use this simple trick – roast in the oven, THEN sear on the stovetop – to create the perfect steak that’s caramelized, juicy, and melt-in-your-mouth delicious!

This is how we do grilling off-season because, I’m craving steak. This is huge in my world because I’m not all that into red meat. I kinda like lots of veggies. And chicken.

Besides, look at that hug in a skillet up there. It’s a juicy pile of comfort food and I’m really into it. But I also just made a batch of cookies and I’m really into those, too… SO 🤷‍♀️

I always thought that searing the steaks before popping them in the oven was the way it should be done, but I was proven otherwise. Searing the steaks right when they come out of the oven is a kitchen hack I’m glad to have finally learned.

INGREDIENTS FOR THE PERFECT STEAK

To make this Oven Steak recipe, you will need: 

  • Steak: When it comes to buying steak, I recommend looking for: 
    • Good-quality: It’s important to me to buy good quality steak. I look for organic, grass-fed and sustainably-raised. 
    • Thick Cut: I like to use top sirloin steak for this recipe; I recommend your steak to be cut 1 to 1.5 inches thick.
  • Oil: Whatever your preferred high-heat cooking oil may be. I like to use olive oil.  
    • High smoke point oils like peanut oil, vegetable oil, coconut oil, avocado oil, even olive oil are the best. This is because they can withstand the high temperature of the oven broiler for a longer period of time without burning.
  • Seasonings:  I keep it simple and use only coarse sea salt and fresh ground black pepper. Feel free to use whatever other dried seasonings that you prefer. 

You will also need: 

  • Baking Sheet and an Oven rack: We use a rack so the heat can circulate under the steak, and you won’t have to flip over the meat while cooking. 
  • A Skillet: I recommend using a cast-iron skillet if you have one. It will hold heat the best and cook the steak evenly. If not, a nonstick heavy-bottomed skillet will do just fine. 
  • An instant-read thermometerA cooking thermometer is the best way to ensure with 100% accuracy that your steak reaches the exact degree of preferred doneness.

HOW TO COOK STEAK IN THE OVEN: 

    • Let steak rest out on the counter for 20 to 30 minutes, to reach room temperature. 
    • Next, line a baking sheet with foil and set a rack over the baking sheet. 
    • Blot steaks dry with paper towels and rub both sides of steak with oil. Sprinkle with coarse sea salt and fresh ground pepper.
    • Grill in the oven for 20-30 minutes, depending on how you like it cooked. 
    • Cover the bottom of a cast iron skillet with oil.
    • Next, remove the steaks from oven and transfer to the hot skillet.
    • Continue cooking steaks for about 2 to 3 minutes per side, or until browned and a bit crisp.
Last, we transfer the steaks to a cutting board. Let the steaks rest for 10 minutes to lock in all those delicious juices. 

Cut, serve, and enjoy!

GUIDE FOR STEAK DONENESS: 

  • Use an Instant Read Meat Thermometer.
    • 125˚F to 130˚F internal temperature for RARE
    • 135˚F to 140˚F internal temperature for MEDIUM RARE
    • 145˚F to 150˚F internal temperature for MEDIUM TO MEDIUM-WELL
    • 160˚F internal temperature for WELL DONE
  • The FDA recommends that steak be cooked to an internal temperature of 145˚F.

HOW TO STORE OVEN GRILLED STEAK:

Once the steak has been cooked, it can be stored in a sealed container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. I would recommend letting the steak cool to near room temperature before placing it in the refrigerator. 

Can I  Freeze Cooked Meat: 

  • Yes, leftover cooked beef, pork, or chicken doesn’t have to sit in the refrigerator; you can freeze it for couple months so it’s ready when you need it. I love to prep beef, pork, or chicken on the weekend and use them all week for quick lunches and dinners. 

How Long Is Frozen Cooked Steak Good For? 

  • The USDA recommends to throw away uncooked roasts, steaks, and chops after a year in the freezer; uncooked ground meat after just 4 months.
  • Frozen cooked meat should be thrown out after 3 months. 

How Do I Properly Reheat A Cooked Steak?

  • When you defrost your steak, do so in the refrigerator; take it out of the freezer the night before and leave in the fridge overnight. Take it out of the fridge and let rest at room temperature for at least 20 minutes before reheating.
  • Reheat in a 250˚F oven for 20 to 25 minutes, or until heated through. 

How Do You Choose Steak?

When shopping for steaks, it’s often best to look for a happy medium between lean and fatty. Look for steaks with some marbling, but not completely covered with fat. Try filet mignon for tenderness, or a ribeye, even strip loin for a balance between tender and flavorful.

What Is The BEST Cut of Steak? 

  • Porterhouse. This particular steak is considered the “king” of steaks mainly because it’s actually two steaks in one.
  • T-bone.
  • Top Sirloin. Also a relatively lean cut of steak.
  • Tri-Tip
  • Flank
  • New York Strip
  • Filet Mignon
  • Rib Eye

    Besides adding my own steak seasoning, I followed the directions to a tee. I was a tad apprehensive about the 275 deg to oven grill other steaks. However to my surprise it worked beautifully. (glad i wasn’t stubborn in the temp.)
    The steaks where absolutely fantastic!! This will be my new cold weather grilling method. Thanks so much for sharing.

  2. Jay

    I just made this tonight with my own spices yet used your method! Turned out AMAZING!!! Wish I could post a pic for others to see.

  3. Michelle

    This may have been the greatest steak I have ever cooked! Usually I will bbq but not weather conducive. These steaks were medium rare, almost fork tender, perfect sear and the flavour……out of this world.

  4. Jacque Hastert

    This is perfect for date nights in! My husband and I love steak, but it has been too cold to grill outside here in the midwest. However, this makes me want to try it in the over. Can’t wait!

  5. Tisha

    Oven grilling steak is so perfect for when you don’t want to fire up that grill in the winter months. Or even if you don’t have a grill! This looks perfectly cooked

  6. Ash Chaplain

    This was great! I like my steak Well Done ..my Husband Medium Well and my Mother in Law likes it Medium Rare…I did add extra seasoning – Chilli Powder, Chopped Garlic, mcCormick Italian Herb Grinder, McCormick Montreal Steak Seasoning and some Onion Powder….seasoned your perfection …. the key is like u said Not Cutting for atleast 10min once it comes off the stove top and keep t covered during those 10minutes

    1. Oh for sure! This recipe has yet to fail me. 😀 If you notice in the recipe, once you remove the steaks from the oven, you will have to continue cooking those steaks on the stovetop for several minutes more.

    2. MJ

      I was unsure about the temp so I upped it thinking 275 was too low. Don’t do it. I will definitely use 275 next time. It was very good just more done than I like. I will definitely cook it like this from now on. Thank you for sharing!

  7. Priscilla Harris

    With all the previous comments being favorable, I can only say What went wrong!?? I followed the recipe to the letter. The steaks were so tough! I should have just pan fried them. I’ve gotten great results doing That. I don’t know why I changed my method. I’ll try this again just so i can figure out what I did wrong

    1. So sorry the steaks didn’t turn out!😕 Only thing I can think of is that they probably cooked too long in the oven. The best way to avoid that is to use a meat thermometer and follow the guide in the Recipe Notes for how long a steak needs to cook according to your preference for doneness. I hope this helps. Thank you!

  8. Amanda West

    These were perfect! I’m glad I can actually cook a steak. Never tried before. It was delicious and easy! Thanks so much!

  9. As much as I love your salads, chicken and these crepes my sister made off here a few months ago (I think 2 ingredient crepes?), This one takes the crown (so far). I LOVE Angus steak and I’d never have thought to grill it in the oven!!! Now I’m off to read your recap and grow horns of envy.

    1. Pat George

      I made a thick sirloin but turned oven to 325. Cooked for the same time and it came out delish. I even did a marinade and was pleasantly surprised!! Thank you. Pat
