How to Broil a Steak in the Oven


Sometimes you want to do something different. And sometimes you just want to pop that steak in the oven instead of firing up the grill.

This link shows you step-by-step how to do that and get great results.

It’s especially helpful if you live in a small apartment without access to an outdoor grill.

One thing, though, the post states that a Porterhouse is otherwise known as a T-bone. That is not true. They are different cuts (one has more filet side and one has more strip side). Different. Similar, but different.

Check out descriptions of cuts of beef here for everything you ever wanted to know about the different steak cuts.

But do check out this process and let me know how your broiled steak turns out!

Steak. Broiled Steak.

You know you want it.

It’s calling out to you.

“It’s the weekend,” the steak says. “You can’t get through it without me.”

“But it’s cold outside and it’s November and I’m tired and football will be on,” you say.

“Exactly,” says the steak. “You need me. Just put me in the broiler. Piece of cake.”

“All right,” you say. “But if you’re high maintenance, so help me…”

“You won’t regret it. Seriously,” steak says. “Have I ever steered you wrong?”

As if in a trance, you walk to the freezer to defrost some strip steaks.

Now that the steak has convinced you to give it a try and you’ve gotten over the fact that you just had a conversation with a steak and it used the word “steer,” you might need some instructions.

Here’s an amazing recipe for broiled steak with garlic and mustard. Mmmmmm.

It calls for Kansas City strips, so give your taste buds a Kansas City treat this weekend.
