How to cook the finest steak

Our chef Darius shares some main tips for making a medium-well steak at home.

Filet mignon steak will need 10-12 minutes: each side takes 4-5 minutes on a pan, or about 7 minutes in a preheated oven.

Rib eye will take 10-12 minutes: press a bit each side on a well preheated pan with a touch of butter for about 2 minutes, and 6-8 minutes more in a 180°C oven.

New York strip will ask for 12-15 minutes: 2 minutes for each side on a pan, and 8-10 minutes more in an oven.

T-bone is cooked for around 15-45 minutes.: 7 minutes for one side on a pan, and then 5 minutes more for the other. Place the steak onto a clean surface and cover it in a tent of aluminum foil. Let the T-bone steak rest for five minutes. Otherwise, you can roast it in an oven afterwards for around 30 minutes for some slow cooking.

Important! After taking out of a fridge, meat should sit in a room temperature for at least 30 minutes. If you use frozen steaks – unfreeze them in a fridge before turning your stove on.
And do not remember to pat your precooked steak down with a paper towel before seasoning it!
