You need two things to cook your fillet steak to perfection – high heat and constant attention.
Fillet is the most tender steak there is, with a delicate but rich flavour that’s perfect if you prefer a leaner cut of beef
Here’s a few tips to help you cook your Irish Hereford Prime Fillet:
- Take your steak out of the fridge at least 30 minutes before cooking to allow it to come to room temperature
- Season your steak liberally with salt & pepper and brush with oil
- Make sure your grill or pan is (smoking) hot before you start cooking, this will seal in all the flavour and goodness
- Be patient – leave your steak to caramelise for 2-3 minutes
- Turn the steak over and sear the other side
- Cook your steak for another 3-4 minutes – turning it a few times at this point will ensure it cooks evenly
- Using a tongs, sear the steak on the edges
- Remove your steak to a clean plate rub with a little butter or a good oil, cover loosely with foil and leave to rest before serving an incredible, juicy fillet steak with your favourite sauce
- For rare fillet, cook for 3-4 min max on each side.
- For medium-rare fillet, cook for 4-5 min on each side.
- For medium fillet, cook for 5-6 min on each side.
