Remove fillet steak from bag and bring to room temperature.

Nick’s tip

When steaks are thick, cut into medallions of equal portion which will help to reduce cooking time.

Preheat the pan to 220C and add olive oil and butter.
Cook in side of the pan and turn in 2-3mins.
Turn when it’s light caramelisation.

Nick’s tip

Active pan management- Moderate the temperature of pan based on caramelisation of meat. Always season meat at last minute.

Remove meat from pan when core temperature is 38C.
Add mushroom and butter. Let it cook in meat juices.
Add garlic when mushroom slightly coloured.
Add lemon zest, basil/parsley and more butter.
Add juice of meat back into pan.
Once meat is rested for 5-6mins, add mushrooms and serve.
