Cooking Hints and Tips:

  • It is important to cur across the grain to reduce shotening during cooking.
  • To maximise tenderness and flavour the meat should be served slightly rare - definetly not well done!
  • When grilling, the meat should be cooked quickly at a high heat in a pre-heated hot pan and remobved from the heat just as the juices are starting to rise.
  • Allow the meat to stand for a few minutes before serving, to ensure an even distribution of juices.
  • Because of the meats low fat content, care must be taken to cook it quickly and at a high temperature to prevent loss of juices and to seal in the unique flavour.
