  1. Bring steak to room temperature. It’s an essential step because it’ll allow for the steak to cook evenly;
  2. Preheat oven to oven to 275° Fahrenheit. If the temperature is too high, the steak will cook much faster on the outside, making it chewy;
  3. Place a wire rack on top of the baking sheet. It allows the hot air to circulate around the steak, causing it to heat evenly. If the steak is placed on a baking sheet, it heats up unevenly, making the top and sides of the steak cook faster than the bottom;
  4. Place the baking sheet onto the middle rack in the oven. Depending on the steak size, reheat leftover steak for 15-25 minutes;
  5. Check the steak’s internal temperature. Use a meat thermometer to check the meat’s temperature. Take it out if it’s 115° degrees Fahrenheit or more;
  6. This step is optional. Preheat a cast-iron skillet until smoking hot. Add a few tablespoons of high smoke point cooking oil to the pan. Place the steak in a pan and sear for 30 seconds to a minute on each side;
  7. Leave the steak to rest for 5-10 minutes. It’ll allow the steak juices to redistribute evenly throughout the steak’s interior.
