    The trick is to cook it for a little bit in the oven first, then introduce it to a frying pan or griddle for the briefest time possible on each side, to colour it, then eat with onion rings, mushrooms a pepper sauce and big chunky chips!

    Enjoy!

    Bollocks forgot the mushrooms!!!!!
    What we talking in the oven binners? In a cooking dish to retain juices? How long? Cooking meat ain’t my thing as you can probably tell!

    Not long at all really. Give it five or ten minutes on a low heat in the oven, just to warm it through. Then get your pan really hot and flash fry it really quickly to colour it, but not too long as it’ll toughen up!

    Let us know how you get on.

    Leave it out at room temp for a half hour, rub in some salt then stick it in a smoking hot pan with a little oil for about 1-2mins per side depending on thickness for med rare. (The salt soaks up some of the water released by the meat.)

    Splash a bit of red wine into the pan afterwards and let it reduce a bit with the juice from the meat. Pop that on top of your now rested steak.
    Season to taste. Leave the oven alone.

    Don’t really cook steaks at home every often. Any tips so its not like boot leather?

    As above. Hot griddle style pan, steak left at room temp for at least an hour, rub in some oil then season, fry for around 2 minutes each side, rest for 5 minutes, delicious medium rare steak.

    100%

    I prefer to put some butter on the steak before wrapping up in tinfoil to make some juices.

    Let the meat reach room temperature and rub some salt into it
    Get a pan up to the temperature of the sun.
    Drop the steak onto the pan, do three press ups, turn the steak over. Three more press ups and it’s ready to eat.

    If the queen is coming or something, let it rest a bit before eating it.

    Leave it to get to room temp.

    Heat frying pan or griddle pan till smoking hot, with no oil.

    Just before cooking, oil and season the steak

    Slap it in the pan and leave it on one side, once it’s started to colour, flip it.

    Done….

    Take steak out of the pan and place on a plate and cover in foil for a few minutes to rest.. This will make the steak 10x better…

    NO SALT

    The oven does have a role – to warm the plate. It’s in the pan for so little time it’s not that hot so a cold plate acts like a heat sink and you end up with a cold steak in no time.

    Hankering for a steak now…. And to think I was still going through my veggie phase 12 months ago.

    as the others have said, room temperature meat, oil the steak not the pan – get the pan really really smoking hot

    But I don’t bother with oil, I have started putting a little butter in the pan when the steak is just about done and flipping the steak over for a a few seconds to let each side cremate a bit more.

    If you have a clean pan or griddle, then leave out the oil but the average well-used domestic frying pan will need it.

    Either that or enjoy flaky black bits of teflon,ceramic etc.

    Season with salt and pepper, cook as above, serve with garlic butter melting on top. Delicious.

    After the last ‘how to cook a steak’ thread, even though I thought I knew how to cook a steak, I used the generally approved method (room temp, oil steak, season, red hot pan, 2 mins each side, rest 4 mins) and it was lovely.
    Even MrsSB said how nice it was and that we should have it more often!
    Just me for tea last night so steak, chips, baby tomatoes & onions – fantastic 🙂
    Ribeye for me though every time.

    Ribeye and griddle pan +1

    Oven would only be used if you have a thick chunk of beef or you’re cooking for a few dozen.

    you cook your meat on a red hot lump of stone, at the table. awsome.

    Yep for the room temp, oiled & seasoned steak, and blisteringly hot pan. Don’t forget that the steak will continue to cook a little when you let it rest. So because I like mine medium rare, I cook it rare in the pan.

    I prefer sirloin to rump, preferably a nice thick piece so it can be cooked red in the middle and caramelised on the outside.

    A nice heavy cast iron pan is useful to get things super hot. What I like to do while the steak is resting….use the same pan you cooked the steak in, fry some mushrooms, garlic and chilli, add a good glug of rum then a good splurge of double cream and reduce down for a few minutes for the best creamy mushroom sauce ever.
