How to cook t bone steak in oven

Cooking a t bone steak in the oven is a great way to get that perfect, juicy steaks. In this blog post, we will walk you through the process of cooking a t bone steak in your oven for those who are looking for an easy and foolproof way to achieve restaurant quality results at home. By following these simple instructions, you will be able to have perfectly cooked t bone steak every time!


For this tutorial, we are using a 1.5” thick T-bone steak that weighs about 8 ounces each. This will be more than enough to serve two people with generous portions of both the New York strip and the Filet Mignon.

Oven setting:

-Preheat oven to 400 degrees F / 200 degrees C / Gas Mark 6

Cooking time:

-Cooking time for t bone steaks depends on how you like your steaks done. Using an average thickness of 1 1/2 inches, cooking times are as follows:

-Rare – 3 minutes per side (total 6 minutes)

-Medium rare – 4 minutes per side (total 8 minutes)

-Medium – 5 minutes per side (total 10 minutes)

-Medium well – 6 minutes per side (total 12 minutes)

-Well done – 7 minutes per side (total 14 minutes)

How to cook steak in the oven:

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F / 200 degrees C / Gas Mark 6.
  2. Use a sharp knife to make Criss cross patterns on the top side of the steak (do not cut too deep). This helps tenderize the meat and allows for even cooking of all sides by letting the marinade seep in from above and below through the cuts. Ensure that you season both sides with salt and pepper before placing it in a baking tray so that the entire surface meets it while cooking, this will add lots of flavors!
  3. Place seasoned T-bone steak on a baking tray and place another tray over it upside down so that the bottom side of your steak is facing upwards while cooking, this will ensure that the entire surface meets the marinade sauce. This is done so to prevent too much moisture loss from your steak, ensuring more of the meat remains juicy and tender while cooking.
  4. Add enough water to form a 1/2-inch layer at the bottom of base tray before placing it in oven. The water will then slowly release into the baking tray during cooking, creating an even distribution of heat around your steak. If you prefer not to use water for cooking your steaks, you may opt to use beef stock instead (less diluted with less salt), which also has its own unique flavor profile!
  5. Place both trays inside oven and cook for desired time based on preferred doneness.
  6. Remove steak from oven and let rest for about 5 minutes before serving as this is enough time to redistribute the juices inside the meat, allowing you to come out with a perfectly cooked t bone steak every single time!
  7. After resting, serve with your favorite sides or sauces and enjoy that delicious T-bone steak just like they do at top restaurants across the world!

Good Steak Is Worth It!

-What more can you ask for when your steak is perfectly cooked every time? It’s one of our favorite ways to eat steaks and it shows! The crosshatch pattern on the top side helps tenderize the meat while allowing for even cooking throughout. We would recommend that you rest your cut before serving as this ensures that the juices are completely redistributed inside, creating a juicier bite once served whilst also preventing too much loss during cooking. Enjoy!

T Bone Steak in Oven or on Stove?

T-Bone Steaks can be cooked on either the stove or in an oven. Although cooking it on the stove will allow you to see the changes in color while cooking, this is not recommended for home cooks due to its requirement of high temperatures and attention during cooking. This makes oven baking your best option.

-Finally, you should know that grilling a T Bone Steak is another way of cooking it. You can use an outdoor grill or opt to use a stovetop grill pan instead! The only difference between this method and oven baking is the application of heat. In general, though, we would recommend oven baking over grilling as it allows for more even cooking throughout while also reducing the need to tend to your steak while it’s being grilled.
