Step by step: Cooking the perfect steak
Step 1 Bring steak to room temperature. Heat a pan or barbecue until hot.
Step 2 Spray steak with oil, then cook on a high heat. Season with pepper while one side is cooking. Cook each side to your liking, turning once with tongs.
Step 3 Turn steak on its side to seal sides.
Cooking guidelines (for a steak 4cm in thickness):
- For a rare steak, cook each side for 1 1/2 minutes
- For a medium steak, cook each side for 2 1/2–3 minutes
Once cooked, rest steak for 5 minutes before serving so juices are reabsorbed.
