August 21, 2008 | Cooking Steak | No Comments
After replacing numerous Hitachi style grills, using tons of charcoal and even an electric grill, my ovens have always proven reliable to make steak in. Sometimes there is nothing better than plain old steak, baked potato and salad dinner.
Grilling is great way to cook steaks, while socializing and having fun with friends. As life is busy, just quickly cooking and getting a steak dinner is a more often the case.
Cooking a steak in the oven, a few inches from the broiler, just on the broiling pan that comes with the stove, works just fine for me. People say that you have to have tender, expensive steak to do this. I found that marinating the meat beforehand, can make even the less costly steaks cook to perfection.
There are plenty of flavors of meat and steak marinades to satisfy various tastes. I always keep a teriyaki style marinade handy in the fridge to use for meats.
User longer marinating times for less quality or thick cut steaks. Place meat on broiler pan and place underneath broiler on shelf about 2 to 3 inches away. Turn broiler on and setting temperature to 350 degrees is average for most steaks in my oven. Cooking about 7 to 10 minutes on each side gets a steak to my taste for medium rare.
I don’t wrap in foil and found using oven cleaner spray on the broiler pan after cooking makes for an easy clean up.
