What Do I Need?
- A pan - a heavy bottomed or cast iron pan is preferable.
- Coarse salt - we prefer to use kosher salt.
- The timer on your phone - timing is key.
Step 1: Pat the steaks dry with tissue to remove any surface moisture
Step 2: Lightly oil your two steaks and season liberally with salt and pepper
Step 3: Heat up your pan on a medium high heat. Add a single drop of water and if it sizzles away, your pan is hot enough
Step 4: Place your steaks onto the pan making sure to place away from yourself, this will prevent any oil splashing toward you
Step 5: Get the timer ready. Cook the steaks for 3 minutes and then flip. Cook for a further 3 minutes
Step 6: Add your flavored butter into the pan and as it melts, spoon the butter over your steaks to glaze them. Do this for 1 minute
Step 7: Remove the steak from the pan and let it rest! It's tempting to dive straight in but it is paramount you let the steak rest for 5-6 minutes, either on a board or warm plate. This will ensure that the juices get re-absorbed leaving you with a delightfully tender steak
Step 8: While the steaks are resting, get your skin on fries into the fryer. They require five - six minutes at a medium-high heat. Once done, drain and season liberally
Step 9: Plate up the steak and fries. Slice the steaks against the grain and enjoy
