How to Cook Steak in the Oven

If it's too cold outside to grill, you can make a juicy, delicious steak in the warmth and comfort of your kitchen.


  • TIP: Cook 10 minutes for a rare steak, 15 minutes for medium, and 20 to 25 minutes for well done.
  • Step 1: Check the steak's internal temperature with a meat thermometer. The internal temperature of a steak should be cooked to 145 degrees before it's eaten. Serve your steak with a baked potato and a few asparagus spears, and enjoy.
  • FACT: Japanese cattle that produce Kobe beef are said to be massaged daily, fed beer, and have sake rubbed into their coats.
  • Step 2: Place the steak in a broiler pan to contain the juices while it cooks. Then place the pan in the oven for 10 to 25 minutes, depending on your temperature preference, making sure the inside is evenly cooked.
  • Step 3: Sear the meat in a pan or briefly broil it before you bake it in the oven. Make sure that it's evenly cooked on both sides.
  • TIP: Set the steak out and allow it to return to room temperature before you cook it. Cooking while the internal temperature is too cold will affect the cooking time.
  • Step 4: Place your oven rack in a position appropriate for the thickness of the meat. Thicker steaks should be cooked farther away from the source of heat to avoid charring. Then preheat your oven to 325 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Step 5: Buy a steak marinade or make your own recipe and completely immerse the steak in the marinade. Let it sit in your refrigerator overnight so the marinade penetrates the entire steak.
