How to Cook a Juicy Steak

Here’s the final part to our steak guide – is anyone hungry yet?

Try this:

Cook your steak for 2 and a half minutes on each side – this is what’s accepted as medium-rare.
(medium = 4 mins each side and well done is 5-6 mins).

Whack it in the microwave on the low setting for 10 seconds….and 10 SECONDS ONLY! This helps the blood inside the steak to congeal, so you won’t be fishing your dinner out of a puddle of life juice.

Always use tongs when handling the steak, as this will reduce any chance of moisture loss through over-handling.

Happy Sunday hackers!
