J Baker's Steak & Chops Tips

Blog • November 26th 2014

Getting a chop or steak just right can be tricky. These tips below are designed to help you get the perfect finish and texture for your steak, to preserve the intrinsic flavours of the native breeds, and ensure you don't over cook anything!

  • Always cook steaks from room temperature and season at the very last minute.
  • Be sure to always oil the meat and not the pan or griddle.
  • Make sure the pan or griddle is smoking hot, and once the meat is charred reduce the heat source to medium.
  • Rest for up to half the cooking time in a warm place.
  • Finish by rubbing a good knob of butter into the steak just as you finish cooking, always use a good quality steak knife to carve, enjoy!
