Prep a thin steak, broil it and eat your dinner.

Steak is packed full of iron and protein and works perfectly with a variety of meals, from salad to stew. Properly season and broil your steaks so they aren't charred or raw. Broil your steak for a longer time if you like it well done -- one of the benefits of broiling is that you can finish cooking quickly, even if you want steaks so done they're charred. You can broil thin steaks in your kitchen oven without any special equipment.


Step 1

Turn your oven to broil and allow it to heat completely.

Step 2

Lay your steaks on the baking sheet. Blot them with paper towels to remove moisture and let the meat come to room temperature.

Step 3

Season your steaks as desired. Create a simple seasoning by brushing the steaks with canola oil and and sprinkling salt and pepper on both sides.

Step 4

Broil the steak for four minutes on one side. Remove steak from the oven, flip it over and return it to the oven for four more minutes. Broiling time depends on how thin your steak is, so check it after two or three minutes if you're broiling a very thin steak.

Step 5

Add one more minute to the broiling time if you want your steak more done. Check it frequently to avoid burning.


You can pan cook your steak before putting it into the oven to help the steak stay juicy. Throw it on a hot skillet for 30 seconds on each side before adding it to the broiler.
