Reverse Searing

Summary:

Reverse searing is a relatively new method of cooking beef that begins with starting the cut at a low oven temperature (200 F – 275F) and finishing it on a very hot skillet. This allows for even heating throughout while also producing a remarkable crust.

 

 Ingredients:

  • 1 Ribeye steak (or any other similar cut, including burgers ~ 1-1.5 inches thick)

  • 1-2 tsp. Kosher salt

  • ~ 4 tbsp. olive oil

 

Preparation time:

Active: 15-20 minutes

Resting: 1 hour – overnight

Directions:

1. Prepare a racked oven pan.

2. Take the ribeye out of its package and dry it off with a paper towel.

3. Pour/rub about 1-2 teaspoons of salt onto the meat. Not all of it will stick; this is just fine.

4. Place meat on racked oven pan and let rest for 1 hour (or overnight) in the refrigerator.

5. Preheat oven to 250°.

6. Put the steak (on racked pan) into the oven. Usually it will take about 20-25 minutes for the

    steak to reach an internal temperature 100°-110° F. When you pull it out of the oven, you want

    the inside of the steak be about 15° lower than your end temperature. (Refer to Chart)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

7. 5 minutes before you pull the steak out of the oven, begin heating your skillet on low-medium heat.

8. About 2 minutes before you take the steak out of the oven, add your olive oil to the skillet and turn

    onto medium-high heat.

9. Remove your steak from the oven, wait for the oil in your skillet to be shimmering and/or almost

    smoking, and then place your ribeye on the skillet. It will take about 45 seconds on each side for

    your steak to reach proper internal temperature (and I recommend taking your tongs and holding

    the cut sideways to sear its fatty edges, as well.)

10. Serve as soon as it is off the skillet, and enjoy!
