Tips To Cook The Perfect Eye Fillet

Gourmet Beef Eye Fillet with Truffle Butter & Hand Cut Chips

Make sure to nail the art of cooking the perfect steak with these tips from our Development Kitchen Chefs.

Eye Fillet is a premium, delicious and flavoursome cut of steak. It’s also lean and not very fatty – which makes it even more important to cook well. So to ensure your end result is a tender, perfectly cooked-to-your-liking steak, with a dark golden crust (where the flavour comes from!), follow these hot tips and you’re sure to nail it.

Tip 1
Make sure the steak is room temperature. This will ensure it cooks evenly!

Tip 2
Season steak well with salt & pepper.

Tip 3
Get the pan nice and hot (think smoking hot!), then add oil. Using a heavy pan to cook steak is ideal if you have one!

Tip 4
Once you have placed the steak into the pan, give it a quick swirl around in the oil, then do not move it for the first 2-3 minutes of cooking. Flip the steak once only, and cook to your liking (see timings below to achieve the end result you’re after!)

Tip 5
After removing the steak from the pan, rest it for 5 minutes to lock in all those juices.

Tip 6
Time to slice! Always cut steak against the grain. Now serve and enjoy your perfectly cooked steak.
