  • Pre-Heat your oven to 225
  • Remove your steak 30 minutes before cooking and rub with salt or seasoning of choice
  • Place on wire rack over a rimmed baking sheet and cook for 25-30 minutes or until internal temperature reaches 125-130 (medium rare).  The steak temp will go up once seared so I find this temp is perfect for a flank steak to take it out of the oven.
  • Heat a cast iron skillet or pan over VERY high heat with tablespoon of ghee or oil.
  • Once hot, take your steak out of the oven and sear 1 minute on each side until a desired crust is formed.
  • Tent steak with foil and let rest for 10 minutes before slicing and serving.


Steak thickness and temperature of your own oven vary, be sure to use the thermometer to get your steak to temperature at the right time.
Do not use olive oil or oils with a low smoke point to sear your steak.
