Chef's Tips

Cooking and seasoning the perfect steak:

  • Searing steak until it's caramelised will give it lots of additional flavour – an extra hot pan is essential
  • Always rest the steak for at least 5 minutes before serving as this relaxes the meat and makes it tender
  • User your fingers to judge how the steak is cooked; when rare it will feel soft, well-done will feel firm
