Servings: 4


  • large oven-proof sauté pan
  • tongs
  • meat thermometer


  • 1 flank steak (1-3 pounds)
  • salt and black pepper
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp unsalted butter


  • Preheat the oven to 350F. Season the steak all over with salt and pepper.
  • Over high heat, melt the oil and butter in a large oven-proof sauté pan. Once the butter's foam disappears, add the steak to the mixture and cook until it obtains a rich brown crust on one side, approximately 3 minutes. Turn it over and brown for 3 minutes on the other side.
  • Place in the oven, moving the oven rack to the middle rack, and cook until the meat reaches an internal temperature of 125F for medium rare and 140F for medium.
  • Loosely cover the meat with foil and let it rest for 5 minutes before slicing. For best slicing, use a serrated knife and cut very thin slices against the grain. Drizzle any pan juices over the meat before serving.Enjoy Pan Roasted Flank Steak!
