As I’m sure many of you know, a good steak is one of my favourite things in life. And if it’s been cooked badly, it upsets me greatly! This is something I’ve been discussing with the team at Barbecoa recently, as they’ve put together a rather nifty (and pretty!) infographic (below) showing you how best to cook steak, as advised by Steve Pooley, Executive Chef Director at Jamie Oliver.
I first visited Barbecoa a few years ago for brunch with Tim, and really enjoyed it! I tried to dig out some photos and found this collage – you can just about see the food (this was clearly pre-blogging days!) some gorgeous steak huevos rancheros.
As you can see, the view is also amazing, looking directly across at St Pauls Cathedral. The team really do know their meat. Barbecoa is described as the UK’s first ‘barbecue steakhouse’, with the chefs cooking the meat using Texas pit smokers, tandoors, fire pits, robata grills and wood-fired ovens. But let’s face it, not many of us have any of those at home (!) so they’ve put together this handy guide for how to cook the perfect steak using the things you’d have in your kitchen:
It’s definitely got my mouth watering, and seriously craving a steak! What’s your favourite cut? I’ve always loved fillet served very rare because I like the texture of the meat, but recently I’ve been getting more into T-bones and rib-eyes simply because of the wonderful rich flavours. Yep, definitely going to have to nip to the butchers on the way home tonight!
