Scotch fillet is a winner - Research revealed that the most popular cut with Dad's across the country is a scotch fillet (aka rib fillet – 47%), followed by a T-bone (18%), sirloin, or rump steak, so looking for these cuts is a great start
Ask your butcher – Your butcher will be able to help give advice depending on the dish you wish to create and how you plan to cook your steak, so don't be afraid to ask.
Refer to an app – There are great information sources online, so do some research with apps like MeatCuts app, designed to help when making your decisions.
Preparation is key - Make sure to bring your steak to room temperature and season before cooking. Also ensure you pre-heat your pan/BBQ so it is nice and hot to seal in the juices
Relax on the flipping - Only flip the steak once and allow ample rest time to ensure a juicy and tender steak. The rule of thumb is to rest for half the amount of time it's been cooking.
Get support to cook perfectly – Take the guesswork out of how long to cook your steak and instead download the SteakMate app, input the details of cut and desired doneness, and let it do the timing for you. A super simple way for a perfect cook every time!
