    I tried to click the link for the montreal steak seasoning that is part of your ny strip steak recipe… I don’t think the link is working properly as it gives me an error message.

    Wow! This was an excellent and super easy recipe! Thanks a million for helping me make the best steak I have ever been able to make at home. It was delicious and juicy. My son who is a super picky eater loved it! I had to substitute fresh basil from our garden instead of thyme. Next time I will have thyme ready to go. Thanks again for sharing this. :)

      Monica,

      Thank you so much! I absolutely LOVE your feedback. And that’s awesome that your son loved it too. If you don’t have thyme on hand you could go with rosemary but cut back on it as I, personally, find it really, REALLY strong.

    Probably the best indoor/oven baked steak I’ve had ever. I’ve tried a few different recipes but this by far is the best.

    Thanks alot!!!

      BSan,

      Thank you so much! I think the hardest part out of all of this is just waiting for it to cook and cool so you can eat it!

    The method is absolutely perfect. I had to make a few adjustments:

    I used soy sauce instead of worcestershire because I didn’t have it, and the last bottle I had I needed to throw away due to lack of frequent use.

    I used a spice blend called “cajun street” by a company called “urban accents” because I didn’t have the time or ingredients for the montreal blend, though I will try it the next time I order fennel seeds.

    The steaks still came out absolutely delicious. I think it’s the method of surface marinade and quick crusting in a hot pan, along with finishing in the oven, but who cares. This is my new go-to recipe for steak cuts that are not filet mignon. Great results with a paper towel pat down, a salt based bath, spice crust, and then searing hot and fast and finishing in the oven.

    My lady said it was great too and she is very discerning with my cooking!

      Patrick,

      Thank you and your lady so very much! I’m so happy to hear these came out perfect for you! This is the only way I will make a steak. Ohhhhhh I bet your spice blend was awesome! The salt in the montreal seasoning is what helps ‘tenderize’ the meat. It helps break the steak and allows it to become more tender. The fast crust sear helps contain the juices and then the bake in the oven completes the job.

    Thank you for this recipe. I have a 1 1/4 lb NYS I’m cooking tonight. In your “notes” directly after the recipe you have the times for “doneness”. These times reflect the amount of time they spend at the 400 degree temp… yes?

      October 8, 2013

      Hi David!

      What time should I be there for dinner? *grin* Yes, the times in the notes reflect the times spent in the oven. Remember there is carryover cooking when meat is removed from the oven. Meaning it’ll cook another 5-10 degrees in temp. If you have a meat thermometer, this may help.

      Rare
      Professional Kitchens (Before Resting): 115-120 degrees

    Hi if I don’t have thyme can I use curly parley or cilantro that what I have on hand. Let me know thanks you.

    • TKWAdmin
      October 9, 2013

      Hi Wendy!

      The cilantro wouldn’t go well with the steak with the seasonings. If you want use the parsley but as a compound butter. I would chop it up and then blend it with the butter. Let that chill and add the compound parsley butter to the steaks as I have in step 12.

    I’m trying this tonight. Much too cold up here in Canada to fire up the grill. This recipe looks absolutely delicious. I will be substituting the Montreal steak seasoning with The Keg steak spice.

      December 9, 2013

      Hey Mark!

      Yeah it’s way too cold to fire up the grill and honestly I love this recipe! I’m working on a way to put a metal ‘smoker’ box in my oven for that wood-grilled flavor.

      I’ve not had The Keg steak spice. Is that local to Canada?

      I’m going to cook this now, but I believe they mean turn off the stove burner, add your butter and aromatics, then place pan&steak in the oven according to the time chart for required “done ness “

      • TKWAdmin
        December 18, 2013

        That’s weird as I know I commented back on this and even updated step 11 to say turn off the heat to the pan (the burner), not the oven.

        Thanks for chiming in!

    Oh my god TKWAdmin, that turned out fantastic! Juicy juicy juicy. I must admit, that is the very best steak I have ever cooked (and I do enjoy cooking). Everything about this recipe is perfect, and I would recommend to others not to change anything at all. Served with a Caesar salad, onion rings, and rice a roni.
    As for The Keg, yes it’s a high end Canadian steakhouse chain and the spice is hard to find, but we have a local grocery store that carries it from time to time, so I usually stock up on it when it is there.
    Back to this amazing dinner, my wife and 3 kids absolutely loved it! Thanks for sharing this gem of a recipe. It’s a keeper for sure. Time to wind down, tune into a good hockey game, and call it a day. Once again, thanks for sharing this 5 star steak recipe

      And yum on the suggestions for the sides! Love me a great Caesar salad and onion rings! Next time I’m up in Niagara Falls I’ll look for that steak seasoning. I’d love to give it a try!

      And it’s Lori by the way!

      I’m so with you on the winding down and watching a great hockey game! Being from Pittsburgh I’m a football and hockey girl through and through!

    This sounds great! I was looking at different cooking methods online and found some that were similar to this one. One of the recipes mentioned the amount of smoke this causes, both when searing in the pan and then baking in the oven. Is it your experience that this causes a ton of smoke? Thanks!

    • TKWAdmin
      December 30, 2013

      Hi Jessi,

      The smoke wasn’t bad at all. I just kept my hood on and it was fine – nothing more than say the steam from boiling water. And I’ve never had smoke from the oven. If someone is getting smoke in the oven it means the pan was spilled or liquids touched the bottom of the oven.

      I will only ever cook my steaks this way!

My husband makes the best steaks on the grill, but since the high here today is 2 degrees, there won’t be any grilling! I’m hoping to outdo him with this recipe!

    WOW!

    This seems too good to be true, but it really is a fantastic way to cook steaks!

    The hardest part is wanting to flip them too soon, but that crust is the BEST.

    Thank you SO much – great!!!!

      Hi Michael!

      Thank you so much for your comments! That really means a lot to me. I agree about the crust. That makes the steak! I just made these the other night and every time I make it Mr. Fantabulous (my husband) is in awe that a steak ‘made on/in a stove’ is literally the very best steak he’s ever had.

    OMG! Thank you for posting this amazing way to cook steak indoors. My fiancé and I are currently in the process of moving across country. I am here to sell our house in Minnesota while he is boating in NV! Anyways hard to cook for one & to cold to go out and start the grill LOL! This was perfect and the flavor was fantastic. I will for sure put this at the top of my most favorites!! Thank you again, God Bless.

    Hi! I was thinking of doing this but with mozz and some marinara during the oven phase. Should I cook the steak fully first THEN melt the cheese and marinara, or put them on in the “butter rosemary” phase. I’m using different seasonings, but the method looks great. Any advice?

    • TKWAdmin
      January 19, 2014

      Hi Richard,

      Oh that sounds yummy! I’m assuming if you’re going the Italian route you’re going to use basil? I would cook it fully first. While it’s cooking warm up the marinara. When the steak is done or just about done, ladle your marinara over top and put your mozzarella on. Cook in the oven no more than a minute as the sauce may burn due to the pan being so hot. Let me know how that turns out!

    Hi there~ I have been very intimidated by the cooking process of meats; hesitant to even try since I am not too big of a meat eater myself. Finally got up the nerve and stumbled upon this recipe- THANK YOU~ for such a gem of a recipe. Totally comprehensive. I was done before my boyfriend could raise an eyebrow and I didn’t embarrass myself. :) Definitely joined my big handsome carnivore in enjoying the steak. Whoop whoop!

    If my steak is thinner than what you used would I sear it in the cast iron for less time? Or put it in the oven for less time? Or both?

    Would this work with basil instead of.thyme? If so, soul you use whole leaves or chopped? I appreciate your advice! Very excited for tonight’s dinner!

    • TKWAdmin
      March 13, 2014

      Hi Jilly

      You can use basil though if you have fresh rosemary I’d go with that instead. Basil is good on steak but for me the best flavor is with Thyme then rosemary. Basil would be my 3rd choice. I would leave the leaves whole as well. You never want to take a knife to fresh basil. You want to tear the leaves as it is to prevent oxidation happening. The steel of a knife oxidises and turns the cut edge black.

      Let me know what you end up going with!

        March 13, 2014

        I went with basil only because that’s what I had on hand and couldn’t bear going to the store in the frigid cold. it was amazing! I can’t wait to try it with thyme or rosemary. My husband said “write down what you did and don’t mess with it, this was perfect!” Thanks so much for a great meal! For some reason I can’t click on the rating stars, but it’s definitely a 5 star steak recipe!

    I don’t have a thermometer. How can I tell the meat is done if I like it medium rare?

    • TKWAdmin
      March 27, 2014

      Hi Liz,

      Per the recipe:

      See below for times:
      Very Rare 4-5 minutes
      Rare 5-6 minutes
      Medium Rare 6-8 minutes
      Medium 7-10 minutes
      Well done Not Recommended

      But you can use the ‘finger’ test.

      Raw: To get a good indicator of what raw meat feels like, open the palm of your hand and relax it. Take the index finger of your other hand and push on the fleshy area between your thumb and base of your palm.
      Medium Rare: Gently press the tip of your middle finger to the tip of your thumb. The fleshy area below your thumb will be what it feels like when meat is Medium-Rare, which is more firm and less giving, but still spongy.
      Rare: Press the tip of your index finger to the tip of your thumb. The fleshy area below your thumb should not be tough at all and should give when touched. Now, open up your palm again to compare how this compares to the Raw feeling.
      Medium: Gently press the tip of your ring finger and the tip of your thumb together. The fleshy area beneath your thumb should still give a little but be getting more firm.
      Well Done: Gently press the tip of your pinky finger to the tip of your thumb. The fleshy area beneath your thumb should feel pretty firm, yet springy.

    This is BY FAR, the best steak I’ve ever made…indoors. Actually, it’s too cold in winter and too hot in summer to grill; so I might just have to make strips this way most of the time! I was out of thyme (as usual) but had some tarragon (don’t ask me why)and still turned out delicious.

      April 21, 2014

      Hi Pam!

      Well aren’t you the amazing wife :) I love doing stuff like that too!

      Searing should be the same amount of time. Cooking time will be slightly less.

      1″ thick steak roughly
      very Rare 3-4 minutes
      Rare 4-5 minutes
      Medium Rare 5-7 minutes
      Medium 6-8 minutes
      Well done Not Recommended

      Here’s another trick to try that works really well when you’re not sure on the times if your steaks or thicker/thinner then the recipe:

      Raw: To get a good indicator of what raw meat feels like, open the palm of your hand and relax it. Take the index finger of your other hand and push on the fleshy area between your thumb and base of your palm.
      Medium Rare: Gently press the tip of your middle finger to the tip of your thumb. The fleshy area below your thumb will be what it feels like when meat is Medium-Rare, which is more firm and less giving, but still spongy.
      Rare: Press the tip of your index finger to the tip of your thumb. The fleshy area below your thumb should not be tough at all and should give when touched. Now, open up your palm again to compare how this compares to the Raw feeling.
      Medium: Gently press the tip of your ring finger and the tip of your thumb together. The fleshy area beneath your thumb should still give a little but be getting more firm.

    This sounds amazing! But I have no Olive Oil. I have Vegetable Oil, Canola Oil and Coconut Oil. Which do you think would be the best? I think the coconut oil may burn as it’s made for medium high heat and I’m not sure what 400* would be considered when you’re talking in terms of “medium high” lol

    • TKWAdmin
      April 22, 2014

      Hi Shannan!

      Yes, definitely don’t use coconut oil. The 400F is for the oven (that’s how you finish off the steaks). Med-high is for your stove when you initially pan sear them.

      Go for the canola oil as it has a higher smoke point; better than vegetable oil.

      Best Kitchen Wishes!

      • Shannan
        April 22, 2014

        Thank you! I know what the 400* is for, lol I just wasn’t sure if 400* oven temps would correlate to medium high heat or high heat. I’ll use the canola and let you know!! Thank you again!! :)

        Ok just got done eating. Turned out amazingly tender!! I didn’t have Worchestershire, why I don’t know, so I used A1, Grill Mates Montreal Steak Seasoning and a dash of Accent. Followed all other instructions with the exception of using Olive Oil since obviously, I didn’t have any, lol. I personally hate Canola Oil, can’t stand the smell at all but I used it. When I seared the steaks, it stunk horribly like burning plastic and I thought for sure the steaks would pick up the taste. Nope. They tasted amazing!! And there was a beautiful cup of drippings in the pan to top them off with. Definitely yummy!!

      • TKWAdmin
        April 22, 2014

        I’m THRILLED you loved it! That truly means so much to me! Yeah if you can swing it, definitely get some olive oil. It makes the difference. Or if you want, go with avocado oil as well. As for the steak seasoning, make your own – trust me on this (http://www.thekitchenwhisperer.net/2012/06/18/adding-a-little-spice-to-your-kitchen/) It’s so much cheaper AND better (in my opinion).

        If you like mushrooms, buy some portabello caps and thick cut them. As soon as you flip the steaks, toss them in the pan and add just another Tbl or two of butter on top of those while the steaks cook in the oven. When you pull the steaks out of the oven, plate them to rest and then put the hot pan on medium heat again to thicken up slightly the juices with the mushrooms. TO DIE FOR!

    what do you suggest for seasoning if i don’t have all the ingredients for your montreal one? I don’t have fennel or dry garlic, and i have no thyme. will it work with salt and pepper oil and butter,? adding mushrooms?

      Hi KR!

      Simple kosher salt and black pepper will work awesome as well! I would add thick slices of portabella mushrooms right after you flip the steaks. Put it all in the oven. I’d say add a little more butter so the shrooms don’t dry out.

    This was my red meat treat. Wasn’t expecting it to be so delicious. Only had dry thyme but it added an incredible flavor. I duplicated the whole thing with a perfectly micowaved sweet potato (was late & I was lazy). Talk about a happy girl! Best steak I’ve ever made. Thanks for sharing

      Thank you so much! Dried thyme works perfectly as well. I don’t always have fresh on hand (at least in the winter). Hey there’s nothing wrong with taking short cuts with potatoes. Sometimes we just need it fast :)

      If make them well done the steak can turn super tough.

    Hello :)
    About a year ago I attempted to make NY strips for myself and my boyfriend – long story short – it was an epic fail.

    This morning, before heading to the grocery store, we were trying to figure out what to do for dinner. I knew I wanted mash potatoes and fresh green beans, but couldn’t decide on the protein. Well, Mr. Mans suggested steak.

    For the past year I have been cooking way more in the kitchen and have started to find my groove and confidence. So maybe it was time to try steak again.

    After getting back from the store I immediately googled “how to cook NY strip..” and the first matching was “how to cook NY strip indoors” – I clicked on that and your website/blog was the 2nd site listed. I read through it and thought, “I can do this!” but it did require us to go back to the grocery store.

    We just finished eating – and yes I agree – this is better than a restaurant – although I did cook it for a little too long (due to my insecurities based on my first attempt at steak a year ago…) it was amazing!!

    Thank you for posting this and you have contributed to the boosting of my self esteem when cooking steak indoors!

    Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
    -Michelle

      Hi Michelle!

      I wish you could see the smile on my face right now after reading your comment. Thank you so much. You have no idea how much that touches my heart! And can I say that knowing lil ol’ me helped in some small way with your cooking self esteem for making steak indoors thrills my heart! You got this!

      Please don’t hesitate to contact me if you have questions on how to make something in the kitchen. l...@thekitchenwhisperer.net

        I just had to share! You deserve to know what you’ve done for me!!

        Now – any idea on how to clean the stainless steal pan (one of the reasons we had to go back to the store – we only have non-stick pans)

        we’ve let this pan soak now for a whole day and Mr. Mans just yelled from the kitchen “I think we have to take this pan back because it’s not coming clean!”

        Help?

        :)

        What I do is as soon as it’s warm to the touch I run hot water on it and put Dawn dish detergent in it to soak (with the water) for about 15 minutes. Then I take a no-abrasive scrubbing pad and clean it out. If there is any reside I then rinse it out and apply Barkeepers Friend. http://www.barkeepersfriend.com/ It’s about $2 in the cleaning aisle. Combined with a little water and a good scrubbing pad, it does an amazing job at cleaning up stainless steel pots and pans. I make a paste if you will and just give it a light scrub. It shines up just like brand new. All of my pans look brand new from using this stuff and I’ve had them for eons.

        Who makes your pan?

It was so delicious oh my hands down best steak I’ve ever had..taste like a hundred dollar steak. We cooked five steaks in total…Every ounce was gone. Thanks again. Can’t wait to make Em again…my husband wants them again tomorrow.

      That is awesome Christina, thank you so much! I cannot grill… AT ALL but Mr. Fantabulous loves steak so I had to come up with a way that rivaled those grilled or those made in a 5-star steak house. He now won’t eat steak anywhere but here.

    Hello,
    I have what seems like a silly question… Do you just sear the steaks for five minutes total? Or five minutes on each side? I’m looking forward to trying this recipe!

    • TKWAdmin
      October 5, 2014

      Hi Kelley!

      Not a silly question at all! As soon as you put the steak in the hot searing pan, cook it for 5 minutes without moving it. Flip it, shut the heat off (remember work fast here), add your butter and thyme and put it in the oven. You only sear the one side.

      Best Kitchen Wishes!
