salt and pepper. get a really hot pan or griddle. oil the meat (not the pan), and fire it straight in

don't tenderize it. that just ruins a good cut of meat. only tenderizer really cheap meat. And it doesn't tend to need any kind of a rub.

Just show it the pan.

Apparently you need to salt it either less than 40 seconds or more than 40 minutes before cooking.

Resting is one of the most important parts of the process. I leave it at least 10 mins, sometimes longer

...yep, DONT OIL THE PAN! .. oil the steak, you could rub it with a garlic clove, and a sprinkle of black pepper. Get the pan as hot as you can ...

... and leave it to REST FOR A FEW MINS after cooking..
enjoy with a nice glass of red (_;)

Just chuck it in a red hot frying pan for about 2 minutes each side :) Lovely :)

put a bit of olive oil on the steak ( both sides ) rub it in with a bit of ground black pepper, and introduce it to the HOT pan for a couple of minutes ... all depending on how you like it cooked ... PLEASE don't ruin it by cooking it through ... needs be be a little bloody :)

also - let it rest on a wooden chopping board before putting it on your plate ... all the juices will seep out and it will taste YUMMY :)

With sirloin make sure you get some tongs and pick the meat up onto its side and push down the fatty side to sear it.

You shouldn't use olive oil, you should use something like groundnut oil which has a higher smoke point. Also I like putting pepper on near the end of cooking as it has a tendency to burn. Also I add a little bit of butter in the pan in the final seconds of cooking then pour all the juices on the steak whilst it rests for a couple of minutes on a plate.

+1 on a little butter near the end
keep basting it over the steak to give a nice nutty glaze

i cut a garlic clove in half and rub the steak a little when its resting
gives a nice subtle garlic taste not too overpowering.
