Reverse-seared steak

To cook a perfect steak, first, you should know how to choose the ideal meat. In Australia, the most popular are T-bone steak, Scotch filet, rump steak, and flat iron steak. It is a matter of personal preference, which option to choose: if you are looking for something more tender and juicy, consider taking a Scotch filet. You should always pay attention to picking cuts that are even in thickness – it is much easier to cook them evenly.

Reverse searing is one of the popular methods to cook meat. It is a two-step procedure. You start by slow-cooking the steak in the oven at low heat and finish by searing it. This technique is pretty new, and it contradicts ‌traditional rules of starting with searing to lock the juices in. Nowadays, ‌culinary professionals have discovered that the initial cooking of meat in an oven at a low temperature makes it much more succulent, and with the searing it will become dark brown and crusty on the outside. The Que-Club team has summed up their extensive knowledge of this process that will help you achieve a perfectly even-cooked steak every single time. Plus, you can purchase all the necessary equipment there, for a flawless BBQ party.

Cooking directions


  • Hardcore Carnivore Black
  • one big steak (at least 2.5cm thick: thick Scotch,
  • Porterhouse, Rib-Eye, T-bone)

Step 1. Preheat your oven or BBQ to 275°F (135°C).

Step 2. Generously coat the steak with the spices. Hardcore Carnivore Black is our suggestion. It has charcoal that will maximize the meat’s flavor and appearance. If you are working with a BBQ, add a chunk of wood.

Step 3. Bake/smoke the meat for 33-55 minutes. The exact time depends on the thickness of the cut.

Step 4. Remove the meat from the oven/BBQ and rest it for 10-15 minutes, covered with foil.

Step 5. Heat a skillet/set up the BBQ for searing, and grill the meat for additional 1-2 minutes each side. Enjoy!

Tip: A glass of rich Argentinian malbec will enhance the flavor of your steak.

Timing is everything

As you can see now, you don’t need much for a delicious steak–just the main ingredient itself and a couple of spices. And if you can’t get Hardcore Carnivore Black, go with the traditional combination of salt, pepper, garlic, onion, and chili. And always remember: time is the most important “ingredient”. Follow this simple rule, and you will get a juicy, smokey steak. For more ideas, check out our collection of recipes.
