How to Cook Steak - The Press Test


Regardless of whether you’re cooking the finest fillet, your favourite sirloin, juicy ribeye, or a good old beefy slice of rump, you want to be sure you’re cooking it just the way you and your family, or guests, like it.

Our Head Chef, Stefan, shows us how to cook a steak perfectly, whether that’s to rare, medium-rare, medium or well done, using an ingenious professional chef’s tip known as "the press test" for testing when the meat is ready – just by touching it.

By using this simple method to test if it’s cooked, you don’t risk disturbing the meat by cutting into it, or by piercing it, which would allow the juices to escape, so you can enjoy your ideal steak, tasty and juicy, as it should be.
