Pat LaFrieda’s Tip For Reverse Searing Steak Without Turning On The Oven

Pat LaFrieda recently teamed up with Thermador to promote the brand’s induction cooktops, and he told us that an induction cooktop is an excellent fit for reverse searing a steak — just in that one pan, just on the cooktop, no oven required. He explained, “You can get the temperature up really hot, really quickly. I like to reverse sear steaks, so I like to cook them on a lower heat for a little bit — but when you want to turn [the heat] up and sear [the steak], you won’t overcook it using induction, because you can turn the heat up so dramatically fast that you go from a resting state to a searing state in seconds.”

However, he noted that even if you don’t have an induction cooktop, or even if you want to use the oven reverse searing method, reverse searing overall is the way to go when cooking a steak. It preserves the crispy texture of the sear, which can otherwise be lost if you sear the steak first, before bringing it to the desired level of doneness.
