Firstly, we recommend taking your steak out of the fridge half an hour before cooking to allow it to settle to room temperature – this allows the meat to cook more evenly. Add oil to pan and allow it to heat up on high heat. Once your oil is sizzling place your steak into your hot frying pan and cook until desired
