The FlavorWave is a convenient oven appliance that cooks a steak quickly to the desired doneness. The oven requires no preheating to further speed cooking time over using a grill or oven. The FlavorWave oven uses a mixture of convection, infrared and halogen heat. The benefit of using a FlavorWave to cook a steak is an oven that does not heat up the kitchen.
Sprinkle the steak to taste with a dry barbecue seasoning or salt and pepper. Rub it into the meat by hand. Set the steak aside to take some of the chill out while the oven is prepared.
Place a pie plate under the rack to catch juices that drip during cooking. Set rack to the 3-inch setting. Place the steak on the rack.
Close the FlavorWave door and press the “Cook Time” button to seven minutes. Press the button a second time to secure the cooking time.
Press the “Start” button and select 400 degrees Fahrenheit for the cooking temperature. Press the button a second time to start cooking the steak.
Open the FlavorWave oven after the steak cooks for nine minutes. Flip the steak with tongs and cook for another nine minutes for medium-well doneness. Cook each side for about seven minutes for a rare or eight minutes for medium.
Open the oven door and check the internal temperature of the meat with a meat thermometer to verify it is 165 degrees Fahrenheit for medium-well. A rare steak is 145 degrees Fahrenheit and a medium steak is 155 degrees Fahrenheit.
Remove the steak from the FlavorWave oven with tongs once it reaches the desired internal temperature. Let the steak rest for about five minutes before serving.
