    I'd eat filetto all' balsamico every day of the week if I could. Lightly floured fillet steaks pan fried in a buttery balsamic vinegar reduction. I swear it tastes like beef in chocolate sauce – delicious!

    Chop an onion and spread over the bottom of a pan. Lay steaks down. Sprinkle with paprika, cumin, chilli, salt, pepper. Layer some strips of carrots and different coloured peppers over the top. Pour over a bottle of Salsa. Then bake.

    Limerick is international now?

    Best way to eat a steak is rare, by the way.

    Nothing beats steak au poivre with thick-cut chips and sauteed mushrooms for a Friday night treat.

    Rare new york strip, cooked on the grill. Salt and pepper, and a good glass of red to wash it down.

    Can't beat steak on a griddled pan, medium rare with onion rings and creamy mash. No need for a sauce when the meat is really good!

    Usually I'd say Barbecue, but not this year! Oh, and a bearnais sauce. And mushrooms.

    Waaah, can't join. I guess then I'll just try the oriental steak salad (which looks yum and sounds EASY) using steak from the neighborhood grocery.

    I like to cook it Asian style. I combine red wine, olive oil, lime, soy sauuce, garlic, brown sugbrar, cilantro and chilli flakes to make the marinade.
    Pour over steak and marinade overnight.
    Cook for 5 mins turn, crush with marinade and cook for about 5-7 mins.
    Lovely served with Asian salad
    It's Yum!

    boring but probably not surprising given that Im just back from cookery school and didnt eat red meat beforehand – medium rare with bearnaise (I keep a pot of tarragon especially for times when this is a craving!)

    just recently discovered the amazing slow cooked french dip sambo….

    bit of sirloin, one onions thinly sliced. beef stock, glass of red wine, splash of tabasco, tablespoon of sugar, teaspoon of garlic powder, bit of real butter and some French rolls (some cheese to serve if you like).

    but all ingredients into slow cooker (leave steak till last), cook for about 8 hours depending on your cooker. Remove and serve in rolls with the remainder of the stock on the side…

    yummy, might make some tomorrow!

    Thank god I live in Wicklow! I like mine rubbed with garlic & a tiny bit of olive oil, lightly seasoned with my carefully hoarded fresh-ground French pepper and some Maldon salt and then perfectly cooked to medium rare on my BBQ. Served with a gorgeously dressed salad, some balsalmic onions and mushrooms and lots of vino. Frites or big fat chips are always a welcome addition, but no Bearnaise

    @ Dec – I'd agree. The barbie's the thing – with barbecued garlic field mushrooms. It's been a barbecue summer for me though – I've done more that ever.

    I agree too, BBQ is the best way to cook a steak – Mine is with a rub made of mixed peppercorns, sichuan pepper and star anise. Sprinkle this rub over a steak lightly covered wth olive oil, leave at room temperature for a good 3-4 hours. then cook to medium rare on a charcoal BBQ. serve with chunky chips and fried red onions – and loads of them.

    I agree BBQ is the way forward. Mine is a Rib Eye steak – left to stand at room temperature for 3-4 hours. Then drizzle with Olive oil, and a sprinkle of my steak rub – mixed peppercorns, Sichuan pepper & star anise. Then cook to medium rare on a hot charcoal BBQ. Serve with Chunky chips & fried red onions.

    Bleeding. Rare to bleu, with bernaise, frites and a leafy salad with vinaigrette.

    Or.. or…

    I once had a breathtaking filet mignon with pureed mint and pea puree, baby potatoes and steamed veggies.

    It's a little hard to choose.

    mmm, fillet steak. As per Nigel Slater: Heat the pan very high, brush the steak with some olive oil, (brush? too much washing up, I use my fingers) and throw the steak on for a few minutes each side. Then I'd de-glaze (fancy!) the pan with a bit of red wine & some mustard & you've got a winner. Also spuds of some description are a must.

    Striploin or rump is best I think.

    Get the steaks out of the fridge about an hour before you cook them. Brush them in olive oil. Get some black or mixed peppercorns. Crush them as opposed to mill them so you get some nice chunks of pepper.
    Coat the steaks in the pepper.

    Personally, I think the only way to cook steak is on the BBQ. I use mine all through the year, not just in summer.

    As a side, I love to BBQ corn-on-the-cob too. It tastes so good, especially when you put some butter on at the end. Get some real butter, small bit of lime zest and some finely chopped chilli (or chilli flakes). Mix all together and then let it melt over the freshly cooked corn.

    Medium Rare Steak with fresh home made gravy, topped with sautéed onions/spring onions. Serve with a side of creamed mash, with some cracked pepper and watch the cold weather melt away!

    My favourite steak is t-bone with some spicey pepper sauce.

    I'd be tempted to try Simply Sourced but I'd be worried about the quality with a €50 order. Maybe they should offer first order free delivery

    There should be no faffing about with good quality steak – nice and rare with possibly (though not always) a lovely pepper sauce.

    The competition for the taster pack from Simply Scourced sounds great. Could do with a bit of free food. Only available to Dub. and N wicklow as I presume thats where they deliver?..but, how is pork from Armagh locally produced???
