Ingredients

Serves: 2
  • 2 Sirloin steaks, 3-4 cm thick, cut as steaks from the Dry Aged Sirloin of Beef Roast joint
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • Rapeseed oil
  • A large knob of butter
  • 4 slices of stilton

Method:

Cooks in: 5 mins • Difficulty: Medium
  1. Remove the steaks from the fridge and allow them to come to room temperature for at least an hour.
  2. Once the steaks have reached room temperature, pat the steaks dry with a piece of kitchen paper and season with some salt and pepper.
  3. Warm two plates in a very low temperature oven.
  4. Take a heavy frying or griddle pan which will comfortably take both steaks, add a good drizzle of oil, and heat the pan over a high heat.
  5. When the oil is beginning to simmer, turn the heat down to medium and carefully lay the steaks into the pan. Cook for 2 minutes until deliciously golden on the underside, turn the steaks over and add the knob of butter. Cook for another 2 minutes, basting with the butter to enrich the steak, until golden brown on the underside. This will give you a medium-rare steak. If you want the steaks cooked rare, cook them for 3 minutes in total.
  6. Remove the steaks from the pan, place on a warm plate, top immediately with the slices of stilton and leave to rest for 5 minutes.
