Introduction: How to Reverse Sear a Perfect Ribeye Steak in the Oven
Flip the script and cook the steak in reverse.
Most steaks are cooked by first searing each side and then finishing (baking) in the oven.
That method is a useful one and produces a steak that has the characteristic "bullseye" doneness.
While this method will give you edge to edge doneness to your liking.
Step 1: When Reverse Searing a Steak, It Needs to Be a Least an Inch Thick, Thicker the Better.
Season with coarse salt and pepper, make sure to press the seasoning into meat.
Step 2: Take a Baking Tray, Line It With a Sheet of Baking Paper and Then Place a Cooling Rack on Top.
Sit your steak on the rack.
The reason for doing this is to help the steak evenly cook.
Step 3: Heat Your Oven to 265f or 130c, Place the Steak Into the Oven.
The steak should take 30 to 40 minutes to cook through to a temp of 125f or 52c.
Check the tempt every 10 to 15 minutes.
Step 4: After About 35 Minutes This Steak Has Reached the Temp We Are Looking For.
Next, take the steak out of the oven and let it rest, while you heat a cast iron pan on a high heat.
Step 5: Now the Pan Is Really Hot, It's Time to Sear the Steak.
If you don't have a cast iron pan, any pan will do.
Cast iron pan's maintain their heat really well and the temp won't drop as much once something has been added to the pan.
Turn over the steak.
You'll notice it's not fully sear because we are going to flip it one last time when we add the butter and herbs.
Step 6: Turn Off the Heat and Add Three Knobs of Butter, Fresh Rosemary and Thyme and a Couple of Cloves of Sliced Garlic.
Once the butter has melted, spoon it onto the steak.
This will add some beautiful flavour to your steak.
Turn over the steak and spoon the butter onto the other side.
