How to make the perfect steak whether it be fillet, ribeye, sirloin or rump!


Serves 2

Ingredients

  • 2 x 300g Northern Ireland Farm Quality Assured Sirloin or Rib eye steaks
  • Olive oil
  • Salt and cracked black pepper

Method:

The key to a perfect steak is cooking at a high temperature for a short time. The steak must be at room temperature, so remove from the fridge 45 minutes before cooking. Pre heat the oven. Season and rub the steaks with a little salt, pepper and olive oil. Heat a frying pan until it’s very hot. Sear the steaks for 1 minute on either side, then transfer to an oven tray and place in a hot oven. Cook for 4 minutes for medium rare, a further minute for medium or 2 – 3 minutes for well done. Remove the steaks from the oven, cover with tin foil and allow to rest for at least 5 minutes.
Serve with salad and crusty bread.


To Serve:

  • Salad leaves
  • Cherry tomatoes
  • Crusty bread
