How To Cook An Amazing Steak In The Pizzeria Pronto Oven!
Each week we love to see the amazing pizzas you create in your Pizzeria Pronto Outdoor Ovens and we are proud to bring you new recipes and tricks to keep you inspired. This week we decided to change things up a bit and really demonstrate the versatility if this great oven with a recipe that is a little less pizza.
While the high heat of the Pronto may be perfect for making pizza, it also acts as a great outdoor oven for other high heat foods by mimicking the extreme temperatures of a steakhouse broiler. Over the years we have seen the potential of this oven and created accessories to fully utilize this heat. Some of our favorites have been the Wok kit and the Deep-dish pan.
The Pronto isn’t a one trick pony: you can use it to cook all sorts of foods. To make the best point of this we cooked a steak with the deep-dish pan. The Pronto is perfect for this task because it gives a great sear and doesn’t smoke up your kitchen. We encourage you to grab a deep-dish pan and try out this great steak recipe yourself! If you want to cook something larger we also offer an oven extender ring for larger cuts of meat or a full pan of nachos.
Ribeye Steak for Two Recipe
One bone-in ribeye (about 22oz)
1 tablespoon of vegetable oil
Shallot and Thyme butter (recipe below)
Season your steak with a liberal amount of salt and pepper and leave it at room temperature for at least 15 minutes. Preheat the Pizzeria Pronto with the aluminum deep dish pan on high. Pour a tablespoon of vegetable oil into the Deep-dish pan and gently place the steak inside. Put the splatter screen on top and slide the pan into the oven. The splatter screen must be put on as it keeps grease from splattering on the inside of the oven. (Screen was only taken off for picture purposes) After about 6-7 minutes check the steak for a nice sear, if the steak has a nice crust flip it and cook until your desired internal temperature is reached. When done cooking remove the steak and let it rest before slicing. Place sliced steak on a plate and cut a 1/3 of an inch wheel off of the shallot and thyme butter. Remove the parchment off of the butter wheel. Place butter on top of the steak.

Shallot and Thyme Butter
1 lbs of room temperature unsalted butter
¼ cup minced shallot
1 bunch of thyme finely chopped
2 teaspoons of ground black pepper
2 teaspoons of kosher salt
Combine all ingredients in a large bowl. Using a spatula combine all ingredients until they are well incorporated. Place a piece of parchment paper down on the table. Place the butter mixture on one end of the parchment paper to create a line that goes to 1 inch from either side. Roll the parchment paper and butter making sure to eliminate any air bubbles and to maintain the empty space on either end. Once the butter has been rolled to the other end of the parchment paper, grab both ends of the parchment and twist in opposite directions. This should ensure that you have an even thickness all the way across. Place butter in the fridge until ready to use.
