Lightly spray the steak on both sides with a cooking spray and season with salt and pepper. 

Preheat a frying pan over high heat.

Add the steaks to the pan. Cook for about 2 minutes on each side for well done (4 minutes per steak).

Remove steak from the pan and leave it to rest for a while.

Tips #

Steak needs to be at room temperature before cooking. Perfect for this recipe is around 0.5cm thick. Thicker steak may require a longer cooking time.

Steak doneness depends on your preferences. I like well-done.
