Slow Roasted Rib Eye Steak
You can use Low Temperature Roasting for one single thick cut of meat or for a larger cut that you slice into individual steaks prior to grilling. If you don’t want to finish the meat on the grill it can be broiled or placed in a hot oven (450 degrees) in the Convection Roast Mode for a short time to render the fat and brown the exterior.
Some steam ovens have a designated Mode for this style of cooking, otherwise you can use the Combination Convection Steam Mode set to 200 - 250 degrees.
Timing is going to depend on weight, a 1lb steak like the one in this recipe will cook through in 20 minutes; however, if you cook a large 7lb roast in this Mode it will take approximately 2 ⅕ hours.
Remember when cooking in this mode the meat will stay very pink inside even though it is thoroughly cooked through, keep your instant read thermometer handy to ensure you get the meat to your ideal temperature.
1 - 1lb boneless rib eye steak
Kosher salt & ground pepper
¼ - teaspoon mixed Italian seasoning (or your preferred steak seasoning)
Heat the Steam Oven to 200 degrees in the Combination Convection Steam Mode or the Low Temperature Roast Mode.
Season the meat and drizzle with a little olive oil.
Place on a rimmed pan and cook for 20 minutes. The meat can be rested prior to giving it a high heat finish on the grill or in the oven.
Resting the meat prior to the high heat finish means you can serve it right away as it comes off the grill.

Steamed Couscous Broccoli Salad with Almonds
Quick cooking grains such as couscous and bulgur can be cooked by pouring boiling water over them, covering the pan, and leaving the grain to absorb the water or you can cook them in the steam oven using the Steam-mode. Of course, the benefit of using your steam oven is that you can cook some vegetables at the same time for an easy delicious salad or side dish.
If your oven doesn’t have small-sized pans to cook the ½ cup of couscous, use a small pyrex or other ovenproof casserole dishes.
½ cup whole wheat couscous (I used the Trader Joe’s brand)
½ cup water
2 large broccoli crowns, florets, and some tender slices of the stem only
½ red onion, minced
½ cup dried cranberries
½ cup toasted almonds (toasted in regular Bake mode 350 for 10 minutes)
½ cup toasted pepitas (toasted with the almonds)
3 tbsp olive oil
3 tbsp mayonnaise
1 tbsp Dijon mustard
2 tbsp apple cider or golden balsamic vinegar
Heat the steam oven in the steam mode at 212 degrees.
Place the couscous in a small solid pan and add ½ cup of water and a pinch of kosher salt.
Place the broccoli florets and stems in the perforated pan.
Slide the pans into the oven and set the timer for 6 minutes. Remove the broccoli and set it aside to cool before adding to the remaining salad ingredients. Leave the couscous in the oven for another 6 - 8 minutes until all the water has been absorbed.
Combine the remaining ingredients in a large shallow bowl and prepare the dressing.
Combine the dressing ingredients in a glass measuring cup, mix well and add a good pinch of sea salt and freshly ground pepper to taste.
