Learn how to broil steaks to have a crisp crust and tender meat inside so you can enjoy them all year round!


  • 2 (16 oz.) New York strip, ribeye, or sirloin steaks, 1-inch thick
  • 2 tsp. olive oil
  • 2 tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. freshly ground black pepper
  • chopped parsley for garnish


  1. Remove your steaks from the refrigerator and pat dry with a paper towel. Rub each side of the steak with a tiny bit of olive oil and season each side with salt and pepper. Let sit for 30-40 minutes to come to room temperature.
  2. Rearrange the racks in your oven so one is 3-4 inches away from the broiling element.
  3. Heat your broiler to high.
  4. Place the steaks on a broiling pan and place under the broiler.
  5. Broil for 6 minutes.
  6. Use tongs to carefully flip the steaks over. Broil on the second side for 6-11 minutes, or until the steak is cooked to your desired temperature.
  7. Transfer the steaks to a cutting board and let rest for 5 minutes.
  8. Slice across the grain and sprinkle with fresh parsley.
