How to Cook the Best Steak. Flip the Script: The Reverse Sear

Mmmmmmm nothing like  good steak! Cook the best steak of your life by simply changing the way you think about searing a steak. 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” of doneness. But by simply baking first and searing last, the quality of the steak changes altogether. It’ll be juicier. More tender. And more beautiful. Mmmmm I can’t wait to try this!

      I was wondering the same thing. I thought it was a rib-eye at first but I didn’t really see any marbleing.

        It’s a select ribeye in the pic. If you want better marbling buy choice or prime cuts of beef. Just ask your local butcher.

    Orrr you cook them properly by broiling them (BBQ) where you cook one side then the other.. Perfect every time…

    …pffft cooked in the oven.. They call that steak.. Roast beef.

    I agree, the best steaks in great restaurants are broiled. I’ve worked in several high-end restaurants and have never seen anyone bake a steak. Although maybe if you’re no good at the usual method this might work for you.

    My broiled steaks are great, but I tried this and it’s even better. The part about the “proper doneness” going through the entire center instead of just a little spot in the very center is true!

    to the poster who said restaurants broil not bake steaks and therefore its better…. i too work in fine dining and we broil steaks because its FAST and GOOD. this method takes over an hour a steak, but has better results. my advice- if you have the time do it this way. if you need to pump a plate out in 7 minutes, broil it. idiot.

    Rub baking soda on the raw steak and put in the refrigerator for 6 to 8 hours. Rinse off and then do the reverse sear and your steak will be guaranteed to really tender. Works awesome with tougher cuts of meat.
