Convection Broiled Steak
& Broiled Corn Salsa

For best results when broiling steak season with salt immediately prior to cooking or 40 minutes prior to cooking.  For thinner cuts like the T Bone immediately before works well, for thicker steaks 40 minutes or overnight will give the best results. Drizzle with a light coating of high heat tolerant oil and your preferred seasoning before cooking.


Preheat the oven in the Convection Broil Mode on Hi or 500 degrees,  place the seasoned meat on a 2-piece Broil pan and cook for 4 - 5 minutes. Carefully turn the meat over and cook for 2 - 3 minutes depending on the thickness of the steak.  If the steak is very thick, turn the oven off and place the pan on the lower rack for 3 - 4 minutes to finish cooking, otherwise remove from the oven and immediately take the steak off the pan. ALways rest meat before carving.

Ingredients

Sirloin or T Bone Steak


Broiled Corn Salsa


2 - cups corn kernels

1 - red pepper, seeds removed chopped into small pieces

1 - small jalapeno pepper, seeds removed, chopped into small pieces

¼ - red onion, chopped into small pieces

1 - teaspoon ground cumin

¼ - teaspoon granulated garlic

1 - tablespoon grapeseed or peanut oil

¼ - cup chopped cilantro leaves

1 - lime, juice only


Preparation

The Broil function in most modern ovens is far more user friendly than older ovens, but it’s important to follow these simple steps when broiling in the oven.


  • Arrange the oven racks before heating the oven, having one rack close to the broiler and another lower down is ideal that way once the meat is seared you can move it away from the powerful direct heat to finish cooking through if needed.

  • Turn your overhead ventilation on to medium high speed, so that any escaping vapors will quickly be extracted.

  • A preheat time of only 5 minutes is required for electric ovens, no preheat required for a gas oven, once the flame is ignited you are ready to cook.

  • Always broil with the door closed

  • Use a 2-piece broil pan when broil marbled meats, this way hot fat is shielded from the powerful direct heat.

  • Always remove meat from the hot pan immediately it comes out of the oven to avoid overcooking.

  • Use the Combination of Convection + Broil for thicker cuts of meat, this aids in even cooking and better moisture retention.

  • Use the Broil only Mode for thin quick cooking cuts of meat, fish and vegetables.

Ingredients

Preparation

1 - cup whole raw almonds lightly toasted and cooled

¾ - cup twice-sifted cake flour

1 ½ - teaspoons baking powder

Pinch of kosher or sea salt

4 - large eggs

1 - cup sugar

1 - teaspoon vanilla extract

Finely grated zest of one small orange or Meyer lemon

⅔ - cup extra virgin olive oil

Toast the almonds in the Convection Mode 325 degrees until golden brown inside, set aside to cool completely. 


Leave the oven set at 325 or change to 350 degrees if using standard Bake Mode.


Butter the bottom and sides of a 9” round cake pan and line the bottom with a circle of parchment paper.


Place the almonds in a food processor with one third of the cake flour and process until almost as fine as sand.  


In a medium sized bowl whisk together the remaining cake flour, baking powder and salt then whisk in the ground almond mixture.


In a stand mixer fitted with a whisk attachment, whip the eggs on high speed until well-blended. Add the sugar gradually then add the vanilla and orange zest. Continue whipping on high speed until the mixture triples in volume, about 3 minutes.


On low speed, add the flour mixture in three batches alternating with the olive oil and beating just until the batter is blended. 


Pour the batter into the prepared pan and bake until firm to the touch in the center.  Cook in the pan for 10 minutes before inverting onto a rack.
