How to Cook a Perfect Frozen Steak

Frozen steaks can be the best tasting steak to ever come out of your kitchen. Not only is it juicier and more evenly cooked, but the slower cook time also provides a greater margin for error.

  • 2 Frozen Steaks
  • Cooking Oil
  • Salt and desired steak flavor enhancer see my recipe below

Marinade (optional)

  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1/2 tsp worcestshire
  • 1/4 tsp balsamic vinegar
  • 1/4 tsp high quality liquid smoke (don’t let BBQ diehards ever talk you out of buying it)
  • 1 tsp fresh ground pepper
  • ¼ tsp brown sugar
  • 1/8 tsp onion powder
  • 1/8 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/8 tsp paprika (smoked is best)
  • 1/8 tsp cinnamon
  • Dash of salt


  • Preheat oven to 275 degrees.
  • Heat 12" pan on high and add enough oil to thinly cover the bottom of the pan, approximately 2 tablespoons of oil.
  • Sear each side of the steak for 90+ seconds, or until a brown crust forms. I recommend using a splatter screen to keep oil contained.
  • Remove from pan and place on wire rack over a baking sheet.
  • Add desired steak seasonings, such as the marinade listed, and generously dust with salt.
  • Insert oven thermometer inside the deepest part of the steak and place in the oven for 15-30 minutes, until it reaches your desired level of doneness. Opening the oven frequently will drastically increase cooking time. (Medium rare is 135 degrees)
  • Remove from oven and let rest 5 minutes prior to cutting and serving.


  • Mix all ingredients together and brush on steak when putting it in the oven. Feel free to use a steak seasoning rub instead.


Important: Please use common sense. If there are noticeable chunks of ice on the steak, let it thaw slightly so the ice is removed before being placed in hot oil. Chunks of ice will turn into water, water will react violently with hot oil and splatter.
