4 HLF - HOME LIVING: NORTH WEST, Tuesday, August 30, 2011 HOMELIVING Guide to a perfect steak on dad's day BARBECUES mean happy times with friends and family, and what better way to celebrate dad's special day than throwing a surprise barbie. This is one day of the year that he can kick back and expect you to do all the work. Well-known chef and Electrolux cooking ambassador Peter Gilmore of Quay Restaurant provides his expert tips on how to serve up a restaurant-quality steak straight from the barbecue. Always pre-heat your barbecue grill. Get it very hot with the hood down for 10 minutes then open the hood and turn burners to medium before sealing the meat. Before barbecuing beef, lightly brush with olive oil and season well with flaked sea salt and freshly ground black pepper. Seasoning your meat before cooking helps to form a flavoursome crust. For barbecuing, select a cut of beef that is well marbled, such as rib eye or sirloin as opposed to a lean cut such as fillet. For individual steaks, always seal the meat on a hot grill. Once it's well coloured on one side turn over to colour the other side. Turn grill to very low to finish cooking. Before serving steak, always allow the meat to rest either on the warming rack of your barbecue with the barbecue turned off or on a platter that is lightly covered with a tea towel. Allow beef to rest for at least 10 minutes, but keep the meat warm. This allows all the juices to run back into the steak. Brush beef with heavily reduced meat juices and serve with a flavoured butter such as wasabi butter. You can also accompany your meat with good mustard or horseradish cream.
