Are you craving a juicy and tender sirloin steak, but don’t have access to a grill? No worries!

You can still achieve mouthwatering results by cooking your sirloin steak in the oven. In this tutorial, we will guide you through the process step by step, so you can enjoy a restaurant-quality steak right at home.

Gather Your Ingredients

Before we dive into the cooking process, let’s make sure we have everything we need:

  • Sirloin steak: Choose a well-marbled cut of sirloin for maximum flavor.
  • Olive oil: Use a high-quality olive oil to enhance the taste of your steak.
  • Salt and pepper: Season your steak generously with salt and pepper to enhance its natural flavors.
  • Garlic powder (optional): For an extra burst of flavor, sprinkle some garlic powder on your steak.

Prepare Your Steak

To ensure your sirloin steak cooks evenly and stays juicy, follow these preparation steps:

1. Preheat the Oven

Start by preheating your oven to 400°F (200°C). This high heat will help sear the outside of the steak, locking in its juices.

2. Season Your Steak

Prior to cooking, drizzle olive oil over both sides of your sirloin steak.

Then, season it with salt, pepper, and garlic powder (if desired). Massage the seasonings into the meat to ensure they adhere well.

3. Let It Rest

Allow your seasoned sirloin steak to rest at room temperature for about 20-30 minutes. This step ensures that the steak cooks evenly.

Cooking Your Sirloin Steak

Now that your steak is prepared, it’s time to cook it to perfection:

1. Sear the Steak

Heat a skillet over high heat and add a drizzle of olive oil. Once the skillet is hot, carefully place the sirloin steak in the pan. Sear each side for about 2-3 minutes until they develop a golden brown crust. Transfer to the Oven

Using oven mitts, transfer the seared steak from the skillet to a baking sheet or oven-safe dish. Place the dish in the preheated oven and let it cook for approximately 10-15 minutes or until your desired level of doneness is achieved:

  • Rare: Cook for about 10 minutes or until internal temperature reaches 125°F (52°C).
  • Medium-rare: Cook for about 12 minutes or until internal temperature reaches 135°F (57°C).
  • Medium: Cook for about 14 minutes or until internal temperature reaches 145°F (63°C).

3. Rest and Slice

Once your sirloin steak is cooked to perfection, remove it from the oven and let it rest on a cutting board for at least five minutes. This resting period allows the juices to redistribute throughout the meat, resulting in a more tender and flavorful steak. Finally, slice your cooked sirloin against the grain into thin strips before serving.

Now that you know how to cook sirloin steak in the oven, you can enjoy this delicious dish anytime. Whether it’s a special occasion or a weeknight dinner, your perfectly cooked sirloin steak will always impress!
