How to Cook Crusted Parmesan Steak

Crusted parmesan steak baked in the oven is delicious. A copycat Longhorn steak recipe with parmesan crust topping to medium or rare for dinner is incredible. Best with fresh beef but you could use Frozen Steak if that is all you have on hand.

Top sirloin steak in oven is delicious. Yes grilled is great too but if you have weather and want to cook inside this is the way to go. Add a parmesan crust browned and crispy to the top for pure comfort food cooked to medium rare pink inside. (affiliate links present)

How to Make Parmesan Crusted Steak

We are using a top sirloin here that is 1.5 pounds. You could use three that total the same weight but the timing would be less. The smaller and thinner the pieces are, the less bake time it will take to get to the ideal pink inside. T Bone Steak in Oven could be made too with this same topping. Just have a meat thermometer handy so you don’t over-bake either one.

If you wanted to Smoke a Steak instead of baking you could. Then you would mix together the toppings, add once it’s almost done to your liking, then coat, and broil for 1-2 minutes to brown the top of it that way.

How to make a crust for a steak?

You just mix together and layer it on the top so it bakes right on!! We did this same thing with our Parmesan Crusted Chicken Air Fryer style except the timing for that one was a bit different of course. The idea is to get your meat to ALMOST done, add your topping and then bake that on to a bubbly golden brown YUM.

What is Parmesan cheese crust made of?

  • 1.5 lbs. steak top sirloin used
  • 1 pinch salt and black pepper
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1/4 c ranch dressing
  • Grated parmesan
  • 2 tbsp Italian (not Panko bread crumbs)
  • 1 tbsp butter
  • 1 tsp garlic powder

If you are shopping for a few of these items I would grab some vegetables too. You can add a similar topping to them as well and bake at the same time so everything is ready together. Our Parmesan Crusted Brussel Sprouts take a bit longer so add beforehand and OMG so good.

If you need a dairy free alternative they are out there. I would stick with the same cheese as this type is quite low in lactose and just swap out the butter to a vegan plant based alternative. If you are really sensitive though Daiya has a version at the supermarket.

How do you get a crispy crust on a steak?

When you’re cooking steak on the stove I really do recommend using a cast iron skillet. Like our Flank Steak Cast Iron Recipe the pan should already be seasoned and the crust it creates is like no other. Not just to be served for special occasions this is great for every day goodness during the week for your family.

  • Take 2 tbsp of your grated parmesan cheese and mix into 1/4 cup ranch dressing, set aside.
  • In another bowl combine breadcrumbs, garlic powder and 2 tbsp. of parmesan cheese.
  • Melt butter then pour into breadcrumb mixture and mix around until everything is saturated.
  • Preheat oven to 400°F. Season steak(s) with salt and pepper. In skillet, heat 2 teaspoons of olive oil on medium-high heat until almost smoking. Sear steaks 2 minutes on each side.
  • Depending on thickness, ours was 1.5 lbs. for one Chuck Steak, you will roast in oven at 400 degrees F for approximately 6 – 8 minutes on each side for medium-rare. I would check after 5 minutes after flipping so you do not over cook it as thinner pieces will cook faster. Use steak temperature chart so it is right for you.
  • Top steak with dressing mixture, then place buttered breadcrumb mix on top of that.
  • Switch oven to broil and leave in for 1-2 minutes just to brown the top parmesan crust so it sticks and gets golden brown.

To create the most delicious steak that maintains it’s juiciness, allow to cool outside of oven for 5-10 minutes before slicing and serving.

You could do a reverse sear if you really preferred. It is easier to already have the meat in the pan at the almost right temp. Then to add toppings to broil until browned. Reverse searing is a cooking technique commonly used for cooking thick cuts of meat. We do this with a Skirt Steak and roasts, to achieve a perfectly cooked interior and a flavorful seared crust on the outside.

This way, you cook the meat slowly at a low temperature first and then finish it with a high-heat sear. This technique is the opposite of the traditional searing method. With that you sear the meat first and then finish it in the oven. If you have leftovers you can slice and make Steak and Potato Soup with it. Jump to recipe and get started with this meal.

How do you cook a sirloin steak in the oven without searing it?

With our parmesan crust steak here we do recommend it. In other versions too it’s great to maintain the moisture and keep the beef tender. If you do not want to do this and skip this step. You could and you would just increase the timing by just a few minutes to achieve the ideal internal temp.
