Steak How to cook

12th February, 2017

This isn’t a recipe for steak but rather a guide of how to treat and handle the steak before and after cooking

Follow these simple rules and you’ll end up with a great steak


Often the steak you buy is vacuum packed so make sure you remove the steak from the pack as soon as you can. This will air the steak and remove the plastic scent and return its colour

Keep the steak out of the fridge and allow to get to room temperature. This way you’ll ensure an even cook and rare steaks won’t be cold in the middle

Season the steak with salt and pepper

Add only a small amount of oil to the pan and use a paper towel to remove as much oil as possible

Ensure your pan is as hot as possible before you add the steak. The closer the pan is too smoking, the better.

After cooking, cover in tin foil and let the steak rest for a few minutes
