If there's one recipe that every owner of a cast iron skillet set has to master, it's how to cook the perfect steak. If you want to replicate the flavor and juicy texture of a restaurant cut of beef at home, the best way to cook a steak is this combination of stovetop and oven cooking. Cooking steak in oven dishes alone doesn't give you the depth of flavor you get from that perfect sear, and likewise, recipes for the steak which only use the stovetop can often result in an overcooked cut.

Our recipe for cast iron skillet steak will show you how to sear your steak on the stove, how long to cook steak in the oven for the perfect results, and how to create a delicious and rich sauce to accompany your ribeye steak.

So if you are wondering how to cook a steak in a cast iron skillet, this simple recipe will be the best way to cook steak!


Other steak recipes

There are far too many recipes with steak out there for us to list them all here, but if you want to mix things up a little bit, we do have a few suggestions about how you can tweak our basic method for cooking steak. Remember with all of these tips, we start with the basics: how to sear the steak on the stovetop, and how to cook steak in oven pans or skillets. Once you have that mastered, you can add a few changes of your own. Here are some ideas to get started:

  • When preparing your steak, try using a little garlic or onion powder as well as salt and pepper. Another option is adding a little dried parsley.
  • Before moving your steak from the stovetop to the oven, brush over a little melted butter and garnish with fresh rosemary or thyme, to infuse a little herbal flavor.
  • Add a little cream to the sauce for a richer texture. You can also crumble in some blue cheese for added punch.

Whatever you choose, remember to keep that pan hot, don't move the steak while cooking, and pay attention to your timings in the oven to get the perfect rare, medium-rare, or medium result.
