Can you recommend a beef steak dish I can prepare in advance for 8 people so no last minute panic?
Just serve steaks! All you need to do is choose a nice thick cut steak, sirloin or fillet would be my choice. Get a pan screaming hot then rub the steaks all over with olive oil, salt and pepper and sear the outsides to a deep dark sexy brown crust as fast as you can. Place on a chilled plate to allow to cool for a bit. Then pop them in the fridge and get on with your business. Come dinner time just take them out of the fridge an hour before you want to eat them and pop them in a preheated hot oven for 5-10 minutes depending on how you like them cooked.
