You will need:

Sirloin steak, about 3- 4 cm thick
Olive Oil
Salt and Pepper

 

Directions:

1. Always make sure to not use a frozen steak. Remove your steak from the fridge and let it thaw to allow it to come to room temperature before cooking.
2. Pat your steak dry with a kitchen towel or paper. Apply a drizzle of oil on both sides. Season with salt and pepper.
3. Turn on your grill and place a cast iron pan. Let the pan heat up together with the grill.
4. Check if the pan is hot enough (It should sizzle when you flick a few drops of water). If it’s hot, place the steak on the pan for at least 45 seconds, then flip it and cook the other side for 30 seconds to get a nice caramelised crust on the steak.
5. Transfer the steak to grill. Place it directly if you want nice grilling marks. If you don't, place the steak together with the pan.
6. Finish cooking the steak in the grill. Cook it for 1 minute to get a rare steak. For medium-rare, cook for 2 minutes on both sides.
7. Place the steak on a plate or a cutting board. Allow it to rest for 10 minutes.
8. Slice the steak opposite to the grain and serve. Enjoy!
