How to Broil a Steak

If you love a good steak, this is a simple way to cook one that maximizes the flavor.


  • Step 1: Heat broiler Heat the broiler to its hottest temperature setting, and brush oil on the broiling pan.
  • Step 2: Prepare the steak Add salt and pepper to the steak.
  • TIP: Broiling brings out the natural flavor of a steak, so salt and pepper are all you need to season it.
  • Step 3: Place the steak in the broiler Place the steak on the pan and put the pan about 6 inches from the heat source.
  • Step 4: Broil on each side Broil the steak for four to six minutes on each side, depending on how well-done you like it.
  • TIP: Do not open the door to peek at the steak. You want the steak to be cooking at a high and consistent temperature.
  • Step 5: Let steak rest before serving Take the steak out and turn off the broiler. Let it rest in the pan so the juices can settle and the meat can cool. After five minutes, serve and enjoy.
  • FACT: Did you know? London Broil refers to any of four beefsteaks that are often on the tough side: flank steak, sirloin, top round, and bottom round.
