Method

  1. Remember to remove your fillet barrels out of the packaging, pat dry and bring to room temperature.
  2. Pre heat your griddle or heavy based frying pan until it sizzles when you add a drop of oil.
  3. Season the meat just prior to cooking. Massage with a little duck or goose fat, creating a very thin layer over the meat.
  4. Cook over high heat turning the barrel on all sides creating a rich caramelised surface has formed, then reduce heat to medium.
  5. Cook 4 to 5 minutes turning regularly for medium rare.
  6. Finish by adding a large knob of butter when frying or on the griddle and baste the beef with the butter for a few moments . Leave to rest in a warm place at least 5 minutes before carving.
  7. The meat will become more firm as it cooks, gently press with your thumb, the more spring back you get the hotter the protein cells have expand which means the more well done your meat is, for a medium rare steak it should have a soft feel with a little spring back.
