Omaha Steaks test kitchen equipment may vary from yours in the amount of heat produced. Verify degree of doneness by using a kitchen thermometer.

Sear Roast Method
  • Preheat oven to 300°F. Heat a small amount of oil in a large ovenproof pan on high heat.
  • If desired, lightly oil and season* meat prior to cooking.
  • Carefully place meat in pan and sear for 2-3 minutes on first side or until well browned. Flip meat and place pan on lower oven rack.
  • For roasts, sear all sides, then place on rack in roasting pan. Use caution when removing pan from oven. Handle will be very hot; use oven mitts.
  • Test doneness of meat by using a kitchen thermometer. Serve on a warmed dish.
  • Apply finishing sauce or butter, if desired.
* If desired, we recommend using Omaha Steaks Private Reserve American Steak Rub.
Grill Method
  • Preheat grill on high, then reduce heat to medium. Lightly oil and season* meat prior to cooking or grilling.
  • Keep a spray bottle of water handy to tame any unexpected flare-ups. Highly marbled meats are subject to flare ups.
  • Test doneness of meat by using a kitchen thermometer or refer to the cooking guide on page 14 for beef.
  • Allow to rest 3-5 minutes for steaks &; chops and 15-20 minutes for roasts. This lets the juices flow back from the center of the meat to the exterior, resulting in a moister, juicier cut of meat. During this resting period, the internal temperature will increase a few degrees, so take into account for doneness.
  • Apply finishing sauce or butter, if desired.
