How to Reverse Sear Steak

The 1 Step You Should Take to Cook the Perfect Steak

User Andrew Rea posted his recipe for the perfect steak on YouTube, and we have to say — it's legit! We've suggested the same reverse searing method. Though it's a bit counterintuitive, the payoff is juicy steak cooked to perfection.

Here's how it's done: after you salt and pepper a steak, roast it at 250°F. When the center temperature is around 115°F, move the steak to a cast-iron skillet with plenty of lard. Allow each side of the steak to turn golden brown, and your heavenly steak is prepared. For a helpful step-by-step image guide, check out Andrew's post on Imgur.
