These helpful Sure Fire Tips will ensure the perfect Silver Fern Farms Steak every time. 

Sure Fire Tip #4: Warm Up Before You Start

Don’t rush to put your steak on the pan straight away. First, make sure it is extra hot before adding the meat.

Why must it be hot? The right temperature pan will sear the meat quickly, trapping in all the tasty juices that keep the meat tender. This is important to the flavour of your meat, creating a smoky, caramelised crust, ideal when sliced across the grain and served with salad. 

Sure Fire Tip #6: Give it Some Space

Meat this good shouldn’t be crowded. It’s important to give each piece of steak room in the pan or on the grill.

If you add too many steaks at once, the temperature of the pan drops and the meat will likely cook unevenly. 

Sure Fire Tip #9: Baste while Cooking

If you’ve marinated your meat beforehand, keep some of the leftover marinade handy. 

Basting the meat while cooking gives an extra burst of flavour. The Japanese marinade on these Silver Fern Farms Venison Yakitori Skewers (above) caramelises, the meat adding to the delicious flavour. 

Sure Fire Tip #11: Only Turn Once

While it can be tempting to check on the meat multiple times, you should only turn it once when cooking on the grill or in the pan.

Too much turning and the meat can overcook, especially with lean cuts. While it may be tempting to continuously turn the Venison Yakitori, only once is necessary, and best for this recipe.
