CV Beef has put all of our cuts and cooking tips together for these ‘go to’ pages for how to cook your meat perfectly.
It's really the topic of conversation when the steaks come out and the fry pan comes on... "Do you even know how to cook a steak?" "You flip it only once, not twice!" "You can turn it as much as you like!"
Well... We've gathered information from world re-known chefs such as Gordon Ramsay & Jamie Oliver and put both to the test!
So how to cook the 'PERFECT STEAK' in 4 simple steps?
1. Rub the steak all over with a good lug of olive oil and a good pinch of sea salt and black pepper
2. Let your pan or BBQ get nice and hot then chuck the steak on for approx. 6 minutes for medium rare & flip the steak every minute if desired
3. For more flavour, try one or a combination of the following…
Halve a garlic clove and rub it over the steak every time you turn it
Rub the steak with a knob of butter – the sweetness from the butter will make it taste divine!
Or by tying woody herbs like thyme or rosemary to the handle of a wooden spoon and brush it over the steak every minute or so
4. Once cooked to your liking, rest the steak on a plate to collect all the lovely juices for 2 minutes
Carve with a nice sharp carving knife, then serve with the resting juices drizzled on top!
