Bottom round steak, known for its lean and economical nature, can be transformed into a tender and flavorful dish when cooked correctly. When it comes thinly sliced, this cut becomes even more versatile. In this article, I will instruct you on how to cook bottom round steak perfectly at home.

1. How To Cook Bottom Round Steak in Oven

Ingredients

  • 2 bottom round steak (thin-sliced)
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Optional marinade (e.g., soy sauce, garlic, and herbs)

Instructions

Set your oven to 375°F (190°C) and allow it to fully preheat.

Pat the thin-sliced bottom round steak dry with paper towels to remove excess moisture. This helps in achieving a good sear.

Brush both sides of the steak with olive oil and season it with salt and pepper. For added flavor, consider marinating the steak in your preferred mixture for 30 minutes to 2 hours.

Heat an oven-safe skillet on the stove over medium-high heat. Once hot, sear the steak for 1-2 minutes per side until nicely browned.

Place the skillet with the seared steak into the preheated oven. Cook for an additional 5-7 minutes for medium-rare, or adjust the cooking time to your desired level of doneness.

Remove the steak from the oven and let it rest for a few minutes before slicing and serving.

2. How To Cook Bottom Round Steak on Stove

Ingredients

  • 2 bottom round steak (thin-sliced)
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Optional seasoning or marinade

Instructions

As in the oven method, pat the steak dry and season it with olive oil, salt, pepper, and optional seasoning or marinade.

Place a skillet or frying pan on the stove over medium-high heat. Allow it to become hot before adding the steak.

Add a small amount of oil to the pan and carefully lay the seasoned steak in. Sear for 1-2 minutes per side, until a golden crust forms.

Cook the steak for an additional 2-4 minutes per side, adjusting the time according to your preferred level of doneness.

Allow the steak to rest for a few minutes before slicing. This helps in retaining the juices for a tender result.

3. How To Cook Bottom Round Steak in Air Fryer

Ingredients

  • 2 bottom round steak (thin-sliced)
  • 1/2 tbsp olive oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Optional marinade or seasoning

Instructions

Set your air fryer to 400°F (200°C) and allow it to preheat for a few minutes.

Pat the steak dry and season it with olive oil, salt, pepper, and any optional marinade or seasoning.

Place the steak in the air fryer basket in a single layer, ensuring there is some space between the slices.

Air fry for 3-4 minutes per side for medium-rare. Adjust the time based on your desired level of doneness.

Allow the steak to rest for a couple of minutes before serving. This allows the juices to redistribute for a succulent result.

4. How To Cook Bottom Round Steak on Grill

Ingredients

  • 2 bottom round steak thin-sliced
  • Olive oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Optional marinade or rub

Instructions

Heat your grill to high heat, around 450°F (230°C). Ensure the grates are clean and well-oiled.

Pat the steak dry and brush it with olive oil. Season with salt, pepper, and any optional marinade or rub.

Place the steak directly on the hot grill grates. Grill for 2-3 minutes per side for medium-rare, adjusting the time for your preferred level of doneness.

Allow the steak to rest for a few minutes before slicing. This step is crucial for a juicy and tender outcome.

With these four cooking techniques, now you know how to cook bottom round steak thin-sliced flavorful and tender. I think that you experiment with different seasonings and marinades to create a dish steak that suits your taste preferences.
