How to Pan-Fry Meat
1. Season the meat with salt and pepper.
2. Heat a frying pan until very hot and put the steak in the pan.
3. Drizzle little amount of oil and butter into the pan.
4. Cook until golden brown and turn over.
As a general guide:
Rare: 1.5 minutes each side
Medium rare: 2 minutes each side
Medium: 3 minutes each side
Well done: 4 minutes each side
-Always bring the meat out of the fridge 10-15mins before cooking and allow it to room temperature to ensure even cooking.
-Resist the urge to repeatedly turn the meat during cooking – this will lower the temperature of the pan and prevent the steak from colouring properly.
-Rest the meat for 2-3mins before plating.
