Need to tell when your steak is ready? Do this for steak as good as South Africa’s Best Steakhouse.
Hold out your left hand with the palm open and the fingers relaxed. Now press down on the ball of your left thumb with your right index finger. The flesh will feel soft and loose, exactly how rare steak should feel.
To tell how a pink steak should feel, hold your left hand out with the fingers and thumb extended but close together. The ball of your hand will feel a little firmer, just like a medium steak should feel.
Hold out your hand with the fingers and thumbs extended and held apart. Now touch the ball of your thumb. That’s what a well-done steak feels like.
