How to cook the perfect medium rare steak

I LIKE to use a nice piece of rump for the barbie, not too expensive and cooks up a treat. When buying your steak make sure there isn't any gristle in the meat and is a nice healthy colour.

Take the meat out of the fridge a few minutes before you are ready to cook so you bring it up to room temperature.

Rub a drizzle of olive oil over the meat and season with salt and pepper rub it in.

Place the meat on a hot grill or hotplate, same goes if you are cooking inside, just heat fry-pan until hot. Wait until the blood rises then turn and wait for the blood to rise again and take off the grill. Rest meat for a few minutes and voila! Perfect every time.
