I have mine left open in the fridge for 2 days so the juices suck back into the middle.

On cooking day, I leave it out in the open air for 2 hours to get up to room temp.

I then get a pan smoking hot and cook each side for a minute at the most, only flipping once.

Afterwards, give the steak 5 min to cool down before eating. It's the juiciest thing you'll ever eat.

Cheers Heston!

Any steak cooked past medium rare is ruined. Tough and dry. A waste of good steak.
I've read that undercooked meat can lead to intestinal parasite but not sure what they class as undercooked meat because a fair majority of steak eaters eat it medium towards medium rare and I'm sure not everyone in that category has worms.

Yep that's how I do it, except I will rub some salt and pepper into it while it's sitting at room temp.

******* crime to see people order a good steak then waste it by requesting anything more than medium rare. Go to macaws you infidels

Medium is best. If it can't be done exact tend to go for slightly well done over rare. You want to hold some of the moisture and juices but a good cut will generally hold its flavour. Can't eat a steak too rare.
