Here's how to cook the perfect steak...
1. Bring your steak to room temperature, let it sit on a board and ‘breathe’ for a while. Treat it like a good bottle of Red Wine.
2. Brush your steak with a little oil. We like using Rapeseed oil or Olive oil for their health benefits and flavour.
3. Season your steak with salt and black pepper. We recommend Cornish Sea Salt for its beautiful flakiness and flavour. If you fancy a little twist on tradition, why not try one of our tubs of flavoured Cornish Sea Salt available online and in our shops.
4. Pop a heavy bottomed pan over a medium-high heat. Let the pan get smoking hot. Be patient!
5. Once the pan is hot, place your steak in the centre. Cook on each side for 2 minutes (medium-rare), your steak should be sealed and look lovely and brown in colour.
6. The best way to check your steak is cooked to perfection is the ‘thumb test’. Simply press the fleshy bit of your thumb in the palm of your hand and then press the steak, they should feel about the same. This is a great indication that your steak is medium-rare.
7. Remove your steak from the pan and leave to rest for 3-5 minutes before serving.
