Cooking Steak

Your guide to cooking the perfect Scotch Beef steak.

Remove steak from the fridge at least 15 minutes before cooking as this will enhance their tenderness after cooking. Always preheat the grill or pan before starting to cook the steak. Rub the steak with oil on both sides and then season it with salt and black petter. Try using groundnut oil as an alternative to other oils as it can withstand high temperatures without burning.

Don’t over handle the steak. Try to limit the turning to only once – halfway though cooking. Finally allow the meat to rest for 3 minutes after cooking.
