Five years ago Jamie Oliver opened Barbecoa in central London. Barbecoa is a restaurant that I know we would love. They have combined various means of cooking into one kitchen so you know that however you like your meat cooking they will be certainly live up to the expectation. The kitchen contains robatas, Argentinian grills, wood fired ovens, Texas pit smokers and a tandoor oven. Unlike most restaurants, Barbecoa have their own, on site butchers so you are guaranteed the freshest, highest quality meat which is sourced from preferred organic suppliers.
Today I am sharing with you a fantastic infographic that any meat foodie will find extremely useful. I know that I will be referring to this next time I cook a steak.
Here is the experts guide to cooking steak...

Once you have got your meat you need to add some extra ingredients for flavour. Barbecoa recommend adding salt, pepper, oil, garlic, butter and one of the following herbs, rosemary, thyme or oregano. Then you simply follow the method below.
Follow the method above and enjoy the perfect steak!
