For Even Results, Here's How You Should Reheat Steak In The Oven
By paying careful attention to temperature and cooking time, it’s easy to bring leftover steak back to a restaurant-quality level.
The best way to reheat a steak is to put it in the oven for about 20 to 30 minutes at 250-275 degrees Fahrenheit. The time may vary depending on the thickness and cut of the steak.
Place the steak on a cooling rack on top of a sheet pan to catch its drippings, and to allow the hot oven air to circulate and heat the steak at all angles.
Another way to ensure an even reheat is to bring the steak to room temperature before adding it to the oven — just like you would when cooking the steak for the first time.
The low temperature heats the steak slowly and thoroughly while retaining the juices and suppleness. It also helps to bring the steak to room temperature before reheating it.
Cold meat in a hot pan or oven causes the meat to seize up, and results in a tougher steak. A room temperature steak will heat through slowly and with less of a temperature shock.
To finish off leftover steak and bring it back to restaurant-quality level, take it from the oven and give it a quick sear on both sides in a pan on the stovetop with a bit of oil.
