Cooking guidelines from defrosted: allow the defrosted meat to come to room temperature before cooking. Pat dry with kitchen paper. Preheat a griddle or frying pan to the highest setting and brush the steaks with oil all over. Place the steaks into the pan and cook for:
Rare: 1 minute per side Medium Rare: 1½ - 2 minutes per side
Turning the steak only once. Remove the steak from the pan and place on a rack. Cover loosely with foil and leave to rest in a warm place for 10 minutes before serving. Slice thinly against the grain to enjoy.
Chefs tip: marinade the steak with 1 tsp sugar, 1 tsp soya sauce, 1 chili and ½ clove of garlic, finely chopped, for 2 hours.

Pan fry: preheat a little oil in a pan over a medium heat, place Alpine Fries in carefully and cook for 4-5 minutes until crisp. Turn regularly during cooking.
Chef's tip: pan fry your Alpine Fries in the juices left in your steak pan while your steak is resting! If it was a leaner steak, like fillet or rump, add a splash more oil to ensure there is enough.
Oven: place on a tray lined with baking paper and cook in a preheated oven at 200°C / fan 190°C / gas 5 for 13-15 minutes.
Deep fry: in preheated oil at 180°C for 4-5 minutes.
Ensure product is piping hot throughout. Do not reheat once cooked. Cooking appliances vary in performance, these are guidelines only.
