Tips for the perfect steak

  1. Remove the meat from the refrigerator and allow it to come to room temperature before cooking. Why? The muscle fibres won't seize and toughen.  
  2. Rub your meat all over with our Meat Rub. If you have 2 steaks use approx 1 heaped tsp of Meat Rub and leave to rest at room temp for 30 mins.
  3. The pan or griddle should be so hot it starts to smoke a little before the meat is added. (The heat sears the meat and helps render the fat).
  4. Don't overcrowd the pan, the rule of thumb is only to use 50% of the pan if you want to sear anything.
  5. Cook your steak– for a good thickness of cut 2.5mm, cook 3-4 mins med rare and 4-6 mins each side for medium. Turn only once. 
  6. Rest....This is crucial as it allows the juices to rest and soak back into the tissue as the fibres relax. Cover the steaks LOOSLEY with foil to help retain the heat whilst resting for 5 minutes. 
  7. Serve and enjoy!
