  • High quality digital thermometer


  • 1 2-4 pound steak, sirloin or rib
  • 1-3 tsp. salt


  • Salt both sides of the steak. For best results do this 24 hours before cooking, but it may be done immediately prior to cooking.
  • Place steak on a broiling pan or rack set on a baking sheet. Bake in 225 degree oven until it reaches an internal temperature of 125 for rare, 132 for medium rare, 140 for medium, which will take 1-2½ hours depending on starting temperature and thickness of the steak.
  • Grill on an extremely hot, preheated grill until both sides have some char. Alternatively, use a very hot skillet, which will make some smoke.
  • Let rest 20 minutes, then cut into extremely thin slices, especially if using a tougher steak like sirloin.
