Cooking Steaks

Cooking steak isn’t hard if you follow very simple rules .

1: Bring your steak to room temperature before cooking . Do NOT get it straight from the fridge and put it in the pan

2: Oil the meat NOT the pan

3: heat the pan

4: season with pepper before cooking , salt after

5: Rest your steak for 3-5 minutes before serving

a blue steak should be a dark almost purple in colour

a rare steak will be dark red in colour

a medium rare will be a more pinker colour with a little pink juice

a medium steak will be pale pink in the middle with little juice

a well done steak will only have a trace of pink to it

To cook a blue steak it’s 1 minute both sides

A rare steak 1.5 minutes both sides

aA medium rare  2 minutes both sides

A medium  2.5 minutes both sides

A well done steak will need about 4- 5 minutes both sides


All the above cooking times  are base on a 2cm thick sirloin steak

I would always suggest using a griddle pan to cook your steaks , no sitting in oil and the charred bars on the steak look appealing
