Steak is what’s for dinner. This is one of my favorite methods of cooking steak lately. Bake low and slow, let it rest and then sear on both sides. If you know how to use an oven, heat up a skillet or a grill… you can make this amazing steak dinner with sides of your choice. I’ve been making steak like this for a while and decided it’s time to share my tips and tricks on making the juiciest and easy foolproof steak. I like to buy Rib eye steak for this, with or without the bone works. Make this for your next dinner party for your guests or for your family to enjoy.

Oven Cooked Ribeye Steak
- Very Important Tip: Make sure your steak has come to room temperature before cooking. Leave it uncovered on the counter for 30 minutes to 1 hour.
- Preheat the oven to 275°F. Season the steak with salt, smashed peeled garlic, and a few sprigs of thyme per side. Place a cooling rack on a cookie sheet and lay the steak on top. Bake in the oven on the middle rack for 30-40 minutes (thinner steak will take 30 minutes, thicker will bake for up to 40 minutes) or until it’s at the temperature you like.
- Remove the steak from the oven and allow it to rest for 15 minutes. Keep it warm by placing a loose piece of foil over top. Bake tomatoes while the steak rests.
- While the steak is resting, heat a cast iron skillet or grill over high heat. Sear the steak for 3-4 minutes per side, depending on how well done you like your steak.
- When it's done, add a few slices of compound butter on each steak. Transfer the steak from the pan to a cutting board. While preparing to serve, slice the meat against the grain to your desired thickness, or leave it uncut. Add to a plate, then drizzle with fresh chimichurri sauce and add the roasted tomatoes on the side
- Preheat the oven to 450°F.
- Add the tomatoes to a baking dish or a cast iron skillet. Drizzle with olive oil and season with sea salt.
- Bake for 15 minutes while the steak rests. Let cool for about 5 minutes before eating.
The sear on this came out great. Once you have assembled your plate of sides you are ready to cut this bad boy and enjoy. let me know what you thought and how yours came out.
My favorite salad to serve with this is a GRILLED CAESAR SALAD with homemade croutons and dressing. It’s super easy to make and the smoky grilling part makes the salad that much better. I hope you enjoy and give this a try.
