1. Prepare the meat & equipment
Before cooking, allow the defrosted meat to come to room temperature and remove it from its vacuum packaging, patting dry with kitchen paper. Allow the meat to 'bloom' for up to 30 minutes before cooking. Preheat the oven (with the fan turned off) to 80ºC and place a roasting tray in the oven to heat up. Heat a griddle or frying pan on high.
2. Sear the meat
Add a little olive oil to the pan, or brush the oil directly onto the meat to avoid using too much. Sear the meat on all sides for the recommended time (see table below) to brown it all over. This will improve both the flavour and appearance of your meat.
