Buying thick cut steaks that you then slice to share is a much better way to cook steak than individual steaks.
- A thin steak will overcook in the centre whilst before the outside has had any chance of developing a caramelised crust look for a generous marbling of fat - fat equals flavour, and it will baste the steak as it cooks
- Season simply - pepper, salt (plenty!) and a drizzle of oil are all you need
- HEAT - very important to cook over really hot grill bars - so allow them to heat for a good 10 minutes for gas, or 30-40 minutes for charcoal. If you have a ‘sizzle zone’ on you barbecue, this is the perfect time to use it.
- REST - the most important part of steak cooking - a 5-10 minute rest somewhere warm but not too hot. Resting on the warming rack is ideal, or simply put on a plate and cover with a double layer of foil.
