A note from our chef

One question we know Rosie gets asked all the time, is how to cook the perfect steak at home. We don’t know about you but there is always something different about eating steak in a restaurant – especially if Rosie is the one in the kitchen. Follow her fool proof method for a sensational steak in your own home.
Rosie recommends: I always use rib eye when cooking steak at home, the flavour you get from this cut is just over and above any other. Trust me.

Here’s what you’ll need

  • Approximately 850g Lakings rib-eye steak
  • 1 tablespoon of duck fat
  • Good salt and freshly cracked black pepper
  • 4 cloves garlic, for crushing
  • Sprigs of thyme
  • Salted butter


  • Sturdy frying pan
  • Lined baking sheet

Step-by-step method

  1. Preheat the oven to 220°.
  2. Take your steak out of the fridge and pat dry, seasoning with salt and freshly cracked black pepper.
  3. Leave at room temperature for 40 minutes before cooking.
  4. Heat a good, sturdy frying pan until hot.
  5. Add a good tablespoon of room temperature duck fat and allow to melt.
  6. Place your seasoned steak into the pan and leave to sear for 3 minutes on the first side.
  7. While searing, add crushed garlic and thyme to the pan, basting the steak in the fat as it cooks.
  8. Once the steak has been seared on both sides for 3 minutes, transfer onto the lined baking sheet. Bake in the oven for up to 9 minutes; if you have a probe, measure the steak’s internal temperature – 50 degrees for rare, 55 for medium rare, and 60 degrees for medium. If you don’t have a probe, make an incision in the steak, and visually inspect for colour.
  9. While the steak finishes in the oven, melt butter in the pan.
  10. Transfer the steak to the pan and baste with the melted butter, for about a minute.
  11. Transfer to cutting board and cover with foil, allowing it to rest for 10 minutes before slicing.
  12. Cut against the grain, drizzle with more butter, the garlic and thyme, serve and enjoy.
