How to Cook The Perfect Steak

Delivering a perfect steak relies on sourcing the best quality cuts of meat and preparing the ingredients perfectly.

In this video we meet Andy MacKenzie, the head chef at the Restaurant at Drakes who talks about where he sources his beef, how it is aged and the techniques used in delivering the best possible fillet of beef.

From preparing and rolling his beef, to vacuum packing, to water bathing and then finally to pan fry the steak in oil with plenty of butter.
