The Perfect Steak

Cooking The Perfect AGA Steak

Preparing any meal at home should be fun and engaging regardless of the appliance you're using. The AGA cooker is among the most essential kitchen appliances you should have. The gentle radiating heat means that your meats, including steaks, will be perfectly juicy as they cook. In this guide, you'll learn how to use the AGA cooker to make delicious steaks and serve them with fried chips.

~45 minutes


Serves 4

Ingredients

4 x Steaks (your favourite cuts)

1.2kg of floury potatoes

Salt and Pepper to season

Vegetable oil

Olive oil

Sprigs of mixed herbs (rosemary, thyme, oregano etc.)

A cast iron frying pan

Succulent AGA Steak & Chips

You can start by picking up your favourite cut of steak from your local butcher or supermarket. Be sure to ask the butcher about the best deal of the day for you to decide the steaks that best suit you. Wash and scrub the potatoes to remove surface dirt. You can either leave the skin on them or peel them. Cut into small chips and leave them to soak in cold water for up to 10 minutes. 

Heating the cast iron frying pan in the roasting oven of your AGA, please be careful to use appropriate heat protection to avoid any injuries. Unwrap the steaks and place them on the simmering hot plate lid with dinner plates to warm up to room temperature. You can also place your favourite red wine on the black flat surface at the back of your AGA for it to warm gently. 

The next step is to massage a little seasoning and cooking oil into the meat that is warming up. Place the oiled and seasoned meat into the frying pan and cook on the boiling plate; if you have any mixed herbs, place them into the pan along with the steak. 

Turn the steak every minute for up to ten minutes depending on the preferred rarity and the thickness of the cut. When the desired degree is reached, remove from heat and let the steak rest for as long as you have cooked it.

For the chips, simmer the soaked chips in salted water until they become tender. Place them in the AGA's cooling rack for them to dry. Pour vegetable oil into a saucepan and fry the chips on the boiling plate until they are golden and crispy; serve with your favourite bottle of red wine.
