Is it possible to cook a steak in an oven that actually tastes good?

    I know grilling is better, but is cooking a steak in a conventional oven any good? The lazy person in me wants to just throw it in the oven instead of pan searing or grilling because it’s less time consuming.

    Yes, bro. Sear the sides quick to lock in the goodness and then toss it in the oven. Actually surprisingly good.

    Yes.

    Broiler works fine.

    So does the reverse sear.

    Cast iron is your friend for skillet or broiler pan.

    Just eat it raw since you're so lazy.
    BETTER YET.
    Go out into a field and start gnawing on cows while they're grazing.

    You are doing something wrong.

    5-star restaurants cook steaks in ovens VERY OFTEN. And you have drooled over steaks in far-worse restaurants.
    Metallic aftertaste? Look into that.

    Doctor: This might kill you.
    Guy: Whatever
    Doctor: It will also hurt your gainz in the gym.
    Guy: Oh... I'm stopping now.

    At least have the decency to sear it off first.
    Also, it depends on which cut of meat. I sometimes do but I always start it in the pan.

    For larger cuts it’s ideal.

    Reverse sear in the oven, yes. Slow bake at 250 until about 5 degrees below internal target temp. Remove from oven. Turn oven on broil, broil 30 seconds per side to brown, done.

    Searing first doesn't "lock in juices" either.

    Go get a sous vide. A monkey could make a great steak with that. It literally is impossible to overcook the meat with it.

    "Searing meat is an essential step if you want to make the most flavorful roasts, steaks, chops, and more. When you sear meat, you caramelize the natural sugars in the meat and brown the proteins, forming a rich brown crust on the surface of the meat that amplifies the savory flavor of the finished dish"

    in the end it's all good.
