Product Details

From choosing which cut you want at the butcher's to searing it medium-rare (or however you prefer it), our Steak Knowledge class will equip you with the lasting confidence to cook steak at home. We'll teach you about eight key cuts; how to master steak on the hob; using touch (or a thermometer) to tell whether a steak is rare, medium, or well-done; why it's important for steak to 'rest'; and how to get the best results from your oven and barbecue too. We'll also prepare a variety of 'sauces' from scratch (wasabi-ginger butter, red-wine reduction pan sauce, chimichurri) that serve as templates for making any compound butter, pan sauce, or fresh herb sauce you'd like. At the end of the class we will slice all the steaks (fillet, ribeye, onglet, featherblade, t-bone, rump, sirloin, bavette) and you will have a chance to try all of the various cuts. We will serve it with the condiments you have prepared, roasted potato wedges and salad.
