Reverse Seared Steak

My son was coaching me on how to cook a reverse sear a steak, it sounded intriguing so I decided to give it a try. I’m not sure what cut of steak I used; it was some large cut of beef I purchased at Costco, sliced into serving portions and preserved in Foodsaver in my freezer. The piece I thawed was about 1-inch thick.

I rubbed the steak with avocado oil and blue cheese salt, placed it on a cooling rack over a skillet and put the whole thing in the oven at 250 degrees F.


I checked the steak after 20 minutes in the oven but the steak was still fairly pink so I left it for 10 more minutes.

After 30 minutes in the oven, I transferred the skillet to a burner set to high heat. I added a small amount of avocado oil to the skillet drippings and placed the steak in the hot oil and seared for 1 minute on each side.

Once I opened my front and back door and got the smoke detector to stop screaming at me and my dog to come out from under the table, I found a glorious seared steak.

Perfection. Tender, juicy, medium rare. I will definitely cook steak like this again. Sorry, Coco (my dog).
