  1. You can griddle, grill or pan fry your steak, always make sure your pan or grill is hot before you start cooking – to ensure you seal the steak and caramelise the meat.
  2. You can fry steaks without oil – dry pan frying – great if you are cooking your steaks for a short time.
  3. If using oil then rapeseed oil is a good choice, butter is great too if frying but can burn if your cooking your steaks for too long, you can add some butter to rapeseed oil and that will help reduce the burning.
  4. Some people like to season their steaks before cooking with a little freshly ground sea salt and black pepper.
