Ingredients for Fillet Steak

Serves 2
  • 120g fillet steak x 2
  • 1 garlic clove, finely chopped
  • 2 tbsp Vegetable Oil
  • A pinch of salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper

How to prepare Fillet Steak

  • Always, always take the steak out the fridge for at least 20 minutes before you start cooking to allow it to come to room temperature! If you don’t do this, you’ll end up with uneven heat going through the beef when you cook it!
  • Once the steak is at room temperature, pat it dry with a paper towel and massage both its sides with Himalayan Salt and Ground Pepper!

Cooking Guide

  1. Place a frying pan or skillet over a medium heat until very hot — no need to add oil to the pan!
  2. Toss the fillet steaks in and cook each side for 2 minutes to achieve fine searing.
  3. Then take the seared fillet steaks and place them on a baking tray and put in oven for between 5 and 6 minutes
  4. Finally, let the fillet steak rest for 10 minutes and then serve!
