For Ideal Results, Pan-Sear Steak Tips Before Putting Them In The Oven
Steak tips are a cut that's usually thrown onto the grill, but pan-searing and then roasting them in the oven is an easier way to get a killer crust with a juicy interior.
A cast iron pan will create the best crust on the meat, due to its ability to maintain high temperatures. The pan can go right into the oven after you finish searing the tips.
If you don't have cast iron, stainless steel pans also work well. Start by preheating the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit, then heat your pan on the stove over medium-high heat.
Next, add your cooking fat of choice to the pan and sear the steak tips briefly — about one minute per side — to develop a good crust. Then, transfer the meat to the oven.
Roast the steaks for three to five minutes until they reach the right internal temperature on a thermometer. Aim for 125 degrees Fahrenheit for medium rare and 155 for well done.
