How to Make Steak in a Turbo Cooker

Save

Grilling a steak in a turbo cooker can be accomplished in minutes. Even if the steak is frozen, it can be cooked quickly in a turbo cooker. Turbo ovens cook by convection, meaning a fan blows the hot air around the food so it cooks quickly and evenly. Steaks can be cooked in a turbo oven in as little as 6 minutes and be perfectly browned, just as if you had grilled them or broiled them in the oven.

Things You'll Need

  • Steak seasoning
  • Long kitchen fork or tongs
  • Meat thermometer (optional)
  • Assemble your turbo oven according to the manufacturer's specifications. If you do not have the user's manual, many manufacturers have the manuals available online for download.

  • Preheat the turbo oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit if your turbo cooker brand recommends this step.

  • Season the steak or steaks on both sides with your choice of seasonings. Alternatively, you can marinate the steaks for 2 hours or overnight before cooking.

  • Arrange the steaks on the cooking rack, allowing room between each steak so the air can flow around each individual steak.

  • Set the cooking time to 6 minutes for a rare steak, 10 minutes for medium or 12 minutes for well done. Double this time if the steak is still frozen.

  • Use a meat thermometer, if desired, to ensure the meat has reached the proper state of doneness. According to the Food Safety and Inspection Service of the USDA, a rare steak will read 145 degrees Fahrenheit internally, medium will read 160 degrees Fahrenheit and a well-done steak will read 170 degrees Fahrenheit.

  • Use a long kitchen fork or kitchen tongs to remove the steak from the oven and place it on a serving plate or platter.

Tips & Warnings

  • Some turbo oven manufacturers recommend spraying the cooking rack and the inside of the oven with nonstick spray before cooking to aid in the cleanup process.
  • Steaks thicker than 1 inch will need more cooking time, while thinner steaks will require less time. To determine proper doneness, use a meat thermometer and record the cooking times on paper for future reference.
