Steak - Cooked The Right Way

Ingredients

  • 2 steaks, well marbled
  • rice bran oil for cooking
  • SIDS SALT & PEPPER to taste

Directions

  1. Remove meat from packet, place on a cake rack and leave, uncovered, in your fridge for 2 days to allow air to circulate. Remove from fridge and leave for 2 hours for the meat to attain room temperature.
    Season with SIDS SALT & PEPPER. In almost smoking hot oil, cook steak, turning every 15 seconds. Do not squeeze the steak while cooking! Check temperature with a meat thermometer for the following doneness -

    • Rare -          45oC
    • Medium -     55oC
    • Well Done - 65oC

    Season with fresh ground black pepper to taste. Apply any other flavourings you desire. If you apply any sauces, make sure they are hot or risk cooling the steak.
    Rest for 5 minutes then serve.

    Note: This is important as resting causes the meat to retain all the juices.
