Step 1. Add high-heat cooking oil to a frying pan, and gradually warm the oil until hot

You can add grapeseed, vegetable, or any other high-heat cooking oil to a frying pan.

I personally use a Lodge Cast Iron Skillet.

Slowly warm the oil using ‘medium’ heat first.

Then turn up the heat to ‘high.’

In just a moment, you’ll be gently adding your steak into the frying pan.

Step 2. Sear your steak for 3 minutes on each side, until golden-brown caramel color is achieved

Using high heat, sear the steak for 3 minutes on each side.

The goal is to cook the outer sides of the steak until both sides have a golden-brown caramel appearance.

Step 3. Transfer your steak to a simple oven trey

Now, move your steak to a simple oven trey.

Most frozen steak recipes call for using a wire rack.

But the vast majority of people have no idea what a wire rack is.

You can just use an oven trey here.

It will work. I promise.

Step 4. Season your steak with Himalayan pink salt and cracked black pepper

To keep things simple, let’s just assume you’re only adding some Himalayan pink salt and fresh cracked black pepper to your steak.

If you’re using a high-quality steak, this should be all of the seasoning you need.

Save the A.1. steak sauce for after your steak is cooked.

Step 5. Place steak in oven set to 350-degrees Fahrenheit, and set countdown timer for 25 minutes

Put your steak in the 350-degree Fahrenheit oven.

Set your timer for 25 minutes.

Please note that 25 minutes is a ballpark estimate.

You will have to keep a close eye on your steak around the 25-minute mark, because every cut of steak is unique.

There’s no way to determine exactly how long you should cook your steak for. Because you could be cooking a rib eye, filet mignon, sirloin or other cut of steak.

We promise that 25-minutes is the best estimated time-frame for cooking frozen steak to medium at 350 degrees Farenheit.

Step 6. Start looking for medium doneness around the 22-minute mark

Once you can see that the middle of your steak is light brown with a little bit of pink coloring near the center, your steak is cooked to medium doneness. You’re close to being done.

Step 7. Remove steak from oven and let steak sit for 5 minutes before eating

At this point, you’re basically home free.

It’s important to let your steak sit for 5 minutes after removing it from the oven.

This helps your steak finish cooking, because heat is still trapped inside of the steak, even after your steak has been removed from the oven.

After 5 minutes, this is the point when most people can start eating.

If you want to be extra careful, you can jab a food thermometer deep into the center of your steak, and verify that the internal temperature of your steak has reached 145 degrees Fahrenheit for medium doneness.

What to do if your steak is slightly undercooked after following this recipe

In the off chance that your steak is undercooked, crank up the oven heat to 375 degrees Fahrenheit and put your steak back in the oven for another 5 minutes.

By this point, your steak should be cooked medium-well or even well-done.

Just be careful not to overcook your steak.

At this point, it helps to stand by and keep a very close eye on your steak.

What if you’re cooking multiple frozen steaks at the same time?

If you’re cooking multiple frozen steaks at the same time, you should follow our same exact recipe, but with a few minor changes:

You’ll want to cook multiple frozen steaks at 375 degrees Fahrenheit instead of 350 degrees Fahrenheit.

You’ll also need to cook your steaks in the oven for closer to 30 minutes rather than 25 minutes.
