Tips and tricks

  1. If possible, get the steak at room temperature before cooking it. This will allow the heat to gets into the middle of the steak more efficiently.
  2. Your pan should be hot when you start cooking the steak, to get a caramelised steak.
  3. To avoid eating a tough steak you can cook the meat medium rear to medium. Depending on the thickness of the steak a medium rear can take a quick 3 to 4 minutes’ sear on each side.
  4. To get a juicy steak leave it to rest on a plate after you have cooked it, for about 5 minutes.
