Cast Iron Pan-Seared Steak (Oven-Finished) Quick, 45-minute marinade steak, pan-seared with cast iron, finished in oven directly on cast iron skillet.

prep: 5 mins cook: 12 mins additional: 1 hr 5 mins total: 1 hr 22 mins Servings: 2 Yield: 2 steaks


  • 2 (6 ounce) beef top sirloin steaks
  • 2 cups orange juice
  • 1 cup apple cider vinegar
  • ½ cup Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1 ½ tablespoons steak seasoning (such as Fiesta Brand® Uncle Chris’), or to taste
  • freshly ground black pepper to taste
  • sea salt to taste


    Step 1

    Place steaks side by side in large casserole dish. Add orange juice, cider vinegar, and Worcestershire sauce. Refrigerate, uncovered, for 45 minutes.

    Step 2

    Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C).

    Step 3

    Remove casserole dish from refrigerator. Cover steaks with plastic wrap and let reach room temperature, at least 15 minutes.

    Step 4

    Heat olive oil in a cast-iron skillet over high heat.

    Step 5

    Place steaks on a clean work surface and generously rub with steak seasoning and black pepper.

    Step 6

    Cook steaks in the hot skillet until lightly browned on the bottom, 2 1/2 minutes. Flip and cook until browned on the other side and red in the center, about 2 minutes more. Place skillet, with steaks, into the oven.

    Step 7

    Bake in the preheated oven until steaks are firm and reddish-pink to lightly pink in the center, 8 to 10 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read from 130 degrees F (54 degrees C) to 140 degrees F (60 degrees C).

    Step 8

    Remove steaks from oven; season with salt. Let sit for 5 minutes before serving.
