You know, sometimes the weather doesn’t cooperate
with grilling a steak outdoors, but that’s ok because there are a lot of great ways to
cook a steak indoors. One way is to use your oven broiler. Now you want to use the broiler
element, because when you’re cooking a steak, searing is the most important thing, and the
broiler element is the only place where you’re going to get a hot enough temperature where
you’re going to get the good searing. So the first thing we’re going to do is preheat the
oven broiler on high. Then, we want to adjust the top rack so that the element will be three
to four inches away from our food. That’s what’s going to give us that great sear. Next,
we’re going to prepare the steaks. After we’ve fully thawed them, we want to blot them dry
with a clean paper towel. This is going to help our oil and seasoning stick to the steaks.
I like to use one of our Omaha Steaks seasoning blends, because I find it really enhances
the flavor of our steaks. Once we’ve prepared the steaks, we’re going to put them on a pan,
and place them in the broiler. I like to cover my pan with foil because it makes the cleanup
a lot easier afterwards. Now that the steaks are in the oven, the age-old question is: “How
long do we cook them for?” Well I like my steaks medium rare, so I’m just going to refer to
the Omaha Steaks Cooking Chart. These steaks are an inch and a quarter thick, so it tells
me to cook them eight minutes on the first side, and then flip them over, and cook them
for six minutes on the second side. This is going to give me that perfect medium rare.
As always, I’m going to let these steaks rest for five minutes before serving. This allows
the juices to redistribute so I’ll have a perfect steak.
