Full Answer

  1. Preheat the oven

    Turn on the oven, and set the temperature to 250 degrees Fahrenheit. Allow the oven to fully preheat.

  2. Prepare the steak

    Set the steak on a wire rack, and place the wire rack on a baking sheet. The wire rack allows even warming, while the baking sheet collects any drippings, preventing messes.

  3. Heat the steak in the oven

    Place the steak in the oven, allowing it to warm through. Use a meat thermometer to check the meat's internal temperature. Remove the steak from the oven when the temperature reaches 110 degrees Fahrenheit. This takes approximately 30 minutes, depending on the size and thickness of the steak.

  4. Sear the steak

    Heat a few tablespoons of cooking oil in a skillet; meanwhile, pat the steak dry. Once the oil begins to smoke, add the steak to the skillet, and sear each side for 60 to 90 seconds. Both sides should be brown and crisp.

  5. Let the steak rest

    Remove the steak from the heat, and let it sit for about five minutes before eating.
