How to Cook the Perfect Rib Eye Steak
How to Cook
To kickstart our ‘How to Cook’ series, we thought we’d begin with a classic: the perfect grass-fed, organic steak. Get ready to impress with your new culinary skills at all the summer BBQs with this simple steak recipe.
Allow the Steak to Come to Room Temperature
Leave the steak out of the fridge for approximately 10 to 15 minutes before cooking. Giving the meat time to come to room temperature allows for a more even cook all the way through. If your meat is cold when it hits the grill, it can cause the muscle fibres to tense up.
Heat The Coals
Light the charcoal on your barbecue and wait for the coals to turn white before cooking. This will take around 10 to 15 minutes.
Oil the Steak
Rub a generous amount of oil into the meat to ensure perfect outer texture once cooked and to avoid sticking.
TOP TIP: Use Beef Fat for your oil.
Season the Steak
Sprinkle with salt on both sides immediately before barbequing. For an extra special touch, try adding a sprig of fresh Rosemary too.
Pop your steak on the grill and sear for 4 to 5 minutes each side for medium rare. You can cook for few less or more minutes depending on how you prefer your steak.
Don't Forget to Rest
This is the final but most important step for your perfect tender steak, and it gives you time to dish up your sides and pour your wine! Rest for 10-15 minutes.
