In Love with Steak (Perfect for two)
Salt & Pepper Rub
The way to his/her heart is through the stomach…
Gently pat your steak dry with a paper towel.
Brush with olive oil and pat down with a generous sprinkling of Gianni’s love blend and freshly ground black pepper. Massage it in gently, like you would your lover.
Turn Up the Heat!
Get the Pan Hot — Really Hot.
Put the steak into the pan. Start with the sides, and then allow your steak to sit in the pan for a few minutes on each side to develop the crust. You’ll know it’s time to flip the steak when it comes loose and can be moved freely around the pan.
Butter it Up (optional)
After flipping the steak, add a dollop of butter onto the steak. Allow it to melt into the steak. Baste the steak using the melted butter and juices to caramelize the crust.
Cook to perfection
Cook the steak according to preference on temperature.
Give it a rest
Prior to serving, allow the steak to rest for a few minutes. This will allow all the juicy goodness to be retained by the meat and redistribute all the flavours evenly.
Carve and serve, with condiments or on its own. Buon appetito!
- You can rest the cooked steak in aluminium foil or between two plates
- The best way to prepare an intimate meal for two is to have a sharing dish in the middle!
