    This is the ultimate pan seared sirloin steak finished in oven crisp delight. For sirloin steak recipes oven cooking is often best, with seasoning and resting being key.

    • Serves 2
    • Preparation time 5 mins
    • Cooking time 18 - 30 mins
  • Ingredients
    • 1 Sirloin Steak
    • 1 tbsp olive oil
    • Salt and pepper
  • Method
    1. Pre-heat the oven to its highest setting, approx 220°C/Fan 200°C/Gas 7 - 250°C/Fan 230°C/Gas 9.
    2. At the same time, pre-heat a frying pan on the hob over a high heat. Rub the steak all over with olive oil and once the frying pan is very hot, sear the steak on all sides for 2 minutes.
    3. Transfer the steak to a rack in a small roasting tin then place uncovered, into the hot oven and cook to your liking.
    4. Remove the steak from the oven and place it on a rack so the steak does not lie in its own juice. Cover with foil and leave to rest in a warm place for at least 10 minutes.
    5. Transfer the rested steak to a wooden board, cut the steak across the grain into ½ inch slices and transfer to warm plates; season with fine sea salt and fresh milled black pepper if desired.
    6. To serve:
      Make a sauce e.g. Hollandaise or pepper, or prepare a simple lettuce heart salad dressed with a good vinaigrette.
