Beef steaks have a natural buttery, slightly garlic flavor making them perfect for a tasty lunch or dinner. Thick steaks look appealing but they take longer to cook than thinner cuts. For a quick, no-fuss dinner, bake your steaks in the oven. Since these cuts are typically leaner than regular steaks you won't need to marinade them for longer than 15 minutes. Thin steaks are less expensive than thicker ones. Save money and get a fast meal with thin, delicious steaks.

For good flavor, choose steaks that have noticeable marbling or flecks of fat.

Step 1

Pour half of your liquid marinade into a shallow baking dish. Place the steak in the dish. Cover the steak with the remaining marinade. Place plastic wrap on the dish and allow it to marinade up to 15 minutes.

Step 2

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit. Spray a baking sheet with cooking oil or cover it with aluminum foil. Place the marinaded steak in the pan.

Step 3

Cook the meat for 4 to 5 minutes. Turn the meat and bake the opposite side of the steak for another 2 to 3 minutes. Baste the steak after turning to keep the thin cut moist.
