Notes

Tips/Tricks

  • season your steak either 30 minutes prior to cooking or right before cooking. This allows the salt to pull the moisture from the meat and for it to redistribute. If you salt it 10 minutes prior to cooking the salt will bring the liquid to the surface and therefore not give you the same sear/crust
  • REST YOUR MEAT! Always, rest your meat after cooking it to allow the juices to redistribute
  • if using a frying pan to cook your steak it will take a little longer – my advice is to sear it for 2 minutes per side and finish it in the oven @ 200c for about 3-4 minutes
