Steaks and grills are one of the culinary world's great pairings, a near-perfect match of food and preparation method. The searing heat of the grill endows the steak with a richly browned and aromatic crust, with a faint hint of smoke to enhance the beef flavor. Of course grilling isn't always an available option, but on those occasions, steak lovers have a number of indoor options to fall back on.
How to Oven Grill Steak
You don't need any special equipment to produce a decent steak indoors. Your oven is a powerful enough cooking tool to handle most jobs adequately, including juicy, oven-"grilled" steaks.
How to Grill Steak on a Stovetop Grill or Pan
If your kitchen range includes a built-in grill, you're in luck. They're powerful and well vented, and make a great steak if you take the time to get acquainted with their quirks. If you don't have a deluxe stovetop grill, a ridged grill pan can also yield a toothsome, savory steak.
