    I squirt a little frylight into the pan - seal for 1 min each side then cook for a futher 3/4 mins or so each side, sprinkle with herbs & place in a pre-heated but off oven, so it can rest for 5 mins, delish!!

    I tend to Grill my steaks! I like mine rare though and always tend to overcook it in the grill, so I'm sure you would definitely be able to cook yours well done under the grill!

    I put cajun spices on mine, or season all and garlic pepper! xxx

    oh, you dont have a grill? I guess ignore my last post then...I dont see why you couldnt bake a steak, but I've never seen or heard of it being done lol! Depends how thick the steak is, the thick ones would take forever in the pan! x

    make sure you pan is HOT before you put it in, smoking! fry light the pan and then put the steak in and do 1minute either side. then turn the heat down to medium and cook for about another 2.5minutes either side for it to be well done.

    cut into it and see how 'done' it is, if it's still bloody and you want it more done, cook it for a little longer.

    if you have the syns, put some butter in the pan at the end and pour that and the juices over your steak! Mmmmmmmmm

    also, before you cook your steak, ensure it's out of the fridge at room temperature for at least half an hour, and ensure you put some salt and pepper on either side too, before you cook it.

    mmmmmmmm steak!

    I spray the pan with fry light, season the steak, and pop it on when the pan is really hot. I don't like steak well done, so I only do it for a couple of minutes for both sides, and it's perfect for me, however you just need to fry for longer until it's perfect for you.

    I personally I would not cook it into the oven, I like mine medium rare. My mum likes her well done, so she is happy to put it into the oven. I think the pan option with fry light would be the best option, just cook it other side, it will start browning up and then just leave it to cook. Just prick a knife or fork into the steak and you will be able to tell if it is still bloody or not.
    Hope you enjoy it! I am completely jealous!!!!!
