It rained today so my plan to go for a walk didn’t eventuate. I’ve put on so much weight, I need to exercise and eat less. Well after last night I really need to eat less.
I made a light and easy steak dinner. The steak was a Scotch rib fillet that was about 1 cm thick and it had a nice amount of deckle around the lean fillet.
I left the steak out on the bench for 2 hours to let it get to room temperature and to reduce the moisture content.
I needed some fried bread as a base for the steak. The steak always tastes good with fried bread. Frying bread in real butter is also important.
I like sweet potato. I cooked this with the steak. In the finished product you can see the char marks
I like to cook my steak rare. I use the Heston Blumenthal method. I have a timer set for 5 minutes and the frying pan set to high. I turn the steak every 20 seconds. I then let it rest for at least 5 minutes. The resting is the most important part.
