How To Cook Steak in a Skillet

sddefault 102

The best way to cook up a thick steak is to sear the beef on the stove top and then finish off the steak in the oven. In this video, I'm cooking a top sirloin steak filet. You can cook the perfect steak with just a little salt and pepper and a good cut of meat, and telling when a steak is done is quite easy as well. Check out our steak video and tell me what you think.

How To Cook The perfect Steak on the Stove:

Choose a good cut of beef …the perfect steak is never the cheapest steak.
Marbled steak will be juicy steak …zero fat = zero flavor.
Let the steak come to room temperature before cooking.
Season the steak well, on both sides, with coarse salt and pepper.
Preheat your oven to 500 degrees Fahrenheit.
On the stove top, heat a little oil in a heavy-bottomed, oven safe skillet.
Add steak to the hot skillet. The beef should sizzle when it hits the pan.
Sear on medium high heat for approx 2 minutes.
Turn steak with tongs and sear other side for 1 minute.
Slide the skillet into the oven and continue to cook until desired temperature.
Test the doneness of the steak by pressing it with your fingers. Steak becomes firm as it cooks. A well done steak is very firm, and a rare steak very malleable. Poking or slicing the steak to check for temperature will result in loss of juices, so this should be avoided.
When steak is almost cooked to desired doneness, remove the steak from the oven and skillet and place on a plate to rest for 5 minutes.
The internal temperature of the steak will continue to rise for a few moments after leaving the oven.
Allowing the steak rest for 5 minutes before serving will preserve the juiciness of the cut.
