Instructions

  1. Preheat a barbecue or chargrill pan over high heat. Lightly spray beef with oil and season with salt and freshly ground black pepper. Cook for 2–3 minutes each side or until browned, then reduce heat to medium and cook for a further 6–8 minutes for medium or until cooked to your liking. Transfer meat to plate, cover with foil and rest for 10 minutes before thinly slicing.
