After firing up the grill and making this steak at work one day, it’s been really hard to order steak at a restaurant :) It took us such a short amount of time to grill in the Brick ‘N’ Flame wood fired oven and both the texture and the flavor were so amazing, I began to wonder why I would want to get steak from anywhere else.
The trick is to get the pizza oven as hot as you can and you get a nice, flavorful crust on the outside, while cooking the inside evenly. We like our steaks medium but you can always leave yours in for a minute or two longer or shorter so you get the finish you like. Here is our simple recipe for Wood Fired Steak in 6 Minutes:
Wood Fired Steak
Prep Time 3 minutes
Cook Time 6 minutes
Yields 2 servings per steak
WHAT YOU NEED
Brick ‘ N’ Flame Wood Fired Oven
Cast iron skillet
Hook or tool to pull skillet out
Tongs or spatula
Ribeye steak (we got ours from Costco)
Garlic seasoning (My favorite is the Spice Islands Organic Garlic & Herb Seasoning)
Step 1 - Prep the oven
A couple hours before you want to cook, throw about 5-6 logs in your wood fired oven and get it burning nice and hot.
The logs will burn down and when you’re ready to cook check the temperature of your oven. Our goal was 900 degrees but 867 degrees cooked the steaks very well. You can push the hot coals to the back and set your cast iron skillet in to heat it up.
Step 2 - Season the steak
Before you push the logs back, bring out your steak and season GENEROUSLY on both sides with the Montreal and garlic seasoning and pat it in. Since we are not marinating our steak you can use a lot of seasoning (see our video at the end for an example).
Step 3 - Cooking your Steak
When the cast iron skillet is nice and hot, set the seasoned steaks on it. There should be a nice sizzle.
Every 90 seconds pull the cast iron skillet out and flip your steaks. Repeat until you have cooked thoroughly. We cooked ours for 6 minutes to get a medium steak.
Step 4 - Take the Steaks Out and Let Them Rest
Take the steaks out of the oven, set them one a plate, and wrap them in tin foil. Let them rest for 10 minutes.
Step 5 - The Best Part
Cut the steak and serve!
