Top Sirloin Steak Cast Iron

A steak is a cut of meat that has been sliced across the muscle fibres and may include a bone. It’s usually grilled, although it can also be cooked in a cast iron skillet. Steak can also be minced and made into patties, as in steak and kidney pie, or cooked in sauce, as in hamburgers.

The recipe here is a drastic departure from standard steak wisdom, which advises salting the meat ahead of time, putting it on the flame, and then leaving it alone.

Instead, season the pan (not the meat) with salt and flip the steak frequently. No grilling, rubbing, or curing is required with this combination of meat, salt, heat, and cast-iron to produce a super-crusty and juicy steak.

  1. In a large casserole dish, arrange the steaks side by side. Combine the orange juice, cider vinegar, and Worcestershire sauce in a mixing bowl. Marinate for 45 minutes in the refrigerator, uncovered.

  2. Preheat oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit (220 degrees C).

  3. Remove the casserole dish from the fridge. Wrap the steaks in plastic wrap and let aside for at least 15 minutes to come to room temperature.
    Rub steaks generously with steak spice and black pepper on a clean work area.

  4. In a cast-iron skillet, heat the olive oil over medium heat.

  5. 2 1/2 minutes on a hot skillet, cook steaks until gently browned on the bottom. Cook for another 2 minutes, or until browned on the opposite side and red in the centre. Place the steaks in the oven in the skillet.

  6. 8 to 10 minutes in a preheated oven, until steaks are firm and reddish-pink to faintly pink in the centre.

    A thermometer inserted into the centre should read between 130 and 140 degrees F (54 and 40 degrees C) (60 degrees C).

  7. Remove the steaks from the oven and season with salt and pepper. Allow for a 5-minute rest period before serving.
