I was really happy to have this recipe during the winter when we couldn't use our grill. Steaks got a great sear on the outside, but stayed nice and pink on the inside. My only problem is that our house usually got pretty smoky and set off the smoke alarm.
If there's not a grill handy, this is a great way to go. Even cheaper cuts turn out great.
This recipe calls for two steaks. For a single steak, I've found cutting the sear and main cooking times a little short makes for better results (but that's just my oven; YMMV).
Turned out perfect, rainy day - great steak!
GREAT recipe! Yes house did get a little smoky, I guess it depends on what type of setup you have. I turned a 7 dollar nice rib eye steak into a 26 dollar nice rib eye steak at a local chain, just as good and flavorable. Definitely recommend.
My 17 year old 'budding chef'' followed the directions to a 'T' and the steaks were perfectly scrumptious! He was a little skeptical only using the olive oil, salt & pepper to season, BUT this recipe made him a believer! Definitely a keeper....
This recipe is wonderful! I seasoned the steaks with Montreal Steak Seasoning and Worchester Sauce in a plastic bag, than I transferred steaks to a bag with garlic & oil that I had used for the cauliflower. My husband, Lou bought me a cast iron skillet. We heated it up to 20 minutes on broil, than added steaks, cooked 3 minutes per side, than served directly from the skillet, to die for
Bought gorgeous steaks for a dinner party and panicked when it was too stormy to grill that night. Found this recipe online, crossed my fingers and gave it a try. What a success! And what a shock how good meat can be from the oven. Everyone was surprised. As mentioned, be prepared for a VERY smoky house when the oven door opens (and warn your guests!) But it doesn't last long and worth it. (I also laid fresh rosemary sprigs on top during the second part of the process, and removed before serving.)
This turned out a decent steak very simply. I'll use it again, perhaps with a little less time as the medium was a true medium & I like it a little bloodier.
Awesome cooking method for an old favorite! The steaks were perfect! Thank you!
All I have to say is, yuuummmmy!!! Ok. I have more to say. This was so good, I don't want to ever grill a steak again.
