      Heat a frying pan over high heat. When it’s hot, drizzle with oil and then add the steak. Cook for 3-4 minutes, turning often or until a good crust forms but the steak still feels soft when pressed (you should aim to take it off while it’s rare).

      If your frying pan is oven-proof, transfer it into the oven to continue gently cooking for another 3-4 minutes or until almost cooked to your liking. Or transfer the steak to a baking tray and place that into the oven.
