Cooking times for the perfect steak

We have all at some time or another over or under cooked a piece of steak.  These guidelines will help you get it just right every time.



Cooking the perfect steak can be a challenge, even for chefs.  Use a heavy bottomed frying pan or griddle (ridged pan) and cook steaks over a medium high heat rather than a high heat.  Remember to rest your steak for 3 to 5 minutes before serving by covering loosely with tinfoil so the meat retains its heat.

These approximate times are total cooking times.  Cook your steak for a minute or two longer on the first side before turning.

  1. Are cook times for each side? so for instance 6 mins on one side and then the other for 6mins for a very rare on the fillet.

Don't be shy, leave a reply. :-)
