How to Cook the Perfect Steak



Step 1: Brush the steak with oil to prevent it from sticking to the pan.

Step 2: Heat a frying pan over medium-high heat.  Once hot add the steak. This will seal the surface and keep the steak juicy.

Step 3: Cook a 2cm-thick piece of steak for 2-3 minutes each side for rare, 4 minutes each side for medium, and 5-6 minutes each side for well-done. To test if your steak is done, press the centre with the back of the tongs. It will feel soft if it’s rare, slightly firmer and springy when it’s medium and very firm when it’s well-done.

Step 4: Transfer steak to a plate, cover with foil and set aside for 3-5 minutes to rest.

Expert Tips:

  • Turn the steak only once or it will dry out.
  • Always use tongs to handle the steak as they won’t pierce the meat or allow the juices to escape.
