Part 2: Broiling Sirloin Steak in Electric Oven in 6 Steps

Before we start cooking, you need to know that…

Conventional home broilers have only a fraction of power, when compared to professional broilers owned by steakhouses. We are talking max 550F vs 2200F.

This makes it hard to properly brown the steak’s surface, while maintaining it juicy and tender on the inside.

That’s why we’ll do the following:

  1. Use thick sirloin steak (already mentioned).
  2. Avoid warming the steak up to the room temperature and cook it right from the fridge.

These two tricks will give more time for sirloin’s surface to brown, while not overcooking on the inside.

And now let’s at the guide itself.

Step 1: Switch on the Broiler

Set your oven broiler at max heat and open the oven door – it will stay like this for the entire cooking process.

Place a sheet of tin foil on the dripping pan, placing it inside the oven on the lowest rack (i.e. rack #1).

Step 2: Season the Sirloin

Place your sirloin, ideally right from the fridge, in the middle of the oven grill rack.

Pat it dry with paper towels and season it’s upper side with salt. I recommend starting with 2-3 pinches of Kosher/flaked salt – you may of course djust that quantity to suit your preferences.

We don’t touch the bottom part now, since all the salt will fall off.

We also skip seasoning with pepper, because it will burn at high heat, leaving charred flavor.

Step 3: Broiling the Sirloin

After the broiler is heated up (you ill notice thermostat light going on/off every once in a while), place the grill rack inside the oven.

I recommend keeping the steak as close as possible to the heating element, because we just need to sear its surface, so it gets that browning developed.

It might take around 5-7 minutes per side.

If you notice that your sirloin steak is ready before that times runs out, flick to the next step.

If you feel like the browning has not yet well developed, wait for another few minutes.

Step 4: Flip, Season & Check

Flip the steak, using meat tongs, as soon as you are happy with the browning on side #1.

Now season side #2 it with salt and check its level of doneness using meat temperature probe.

I recommend medium rare level of doneness – 130F / 55C – for a juicy, tender steak, that’s full of flavor

You should be few degrees away from that level and that’s perfect.

Put the grill rack back inside the oven and continue broiling – another 5-7 minutes.

Step 5: Probe & Finish Steak in Oven

Once you are happy with the browning (i.e. it looks like you want to eat that sirloin now), take the rack out and check the doneness level again.

Remember that your sirloin can reach medium-rare state before the surface browning is developed to your liking, so it’s a trade-off between the crusty surface and the inside tenderness.

However it may also be quite a few degrees away…

Then you can either, enjoy it slightly rare (I do that) or you can finish it in oven, using a more gentle heat, so all the tenderness stays inside the sirloin.

To do that, switch off the broiler and heat the oven to 275F / 135C with the fan on (or 300F  / 150C with the fan off).

Place the sirloin back in and check for doneness in ~ 10 minutes to see what’s it like.

Keep going until you reach medium-rare or medium level of doneness.

Step 6: Rest & Cut

Once you are done, take the sirloin steak out and transfer it on a cutting board.

Cover it with tin foil for 3-5 minutes to let all the juices inside calm down, so they stay inside, when you cut the steak.

Cut across the grain to keep the steak tender and enjoy your meal!
