1. 24-hours ahead salt your steak with the flake salt, sprinkling on both sides and patting down.

2. When grilling ensure the steak is seared fat-side down, aiming to reduce and melt the fat away. Frequently flipping the steak will help to get an even cook through the entire piece of meat.

3. When cooked to your liking, remove the steak from the grill and rest for 5-10minutes. Lambert says rest the steak for the same amount of time you cooked the meat for, if not longer.

4. Slice the steak along the bone. Although it is seasoned to perfection, thanks to the 24-hour method, adding a pinch of flaky salt on top doesn’t hurt.

5. To serve, quickly grill some hard herbs like rosemary to give a slightly herby aroma, pairing perfectly with the delicious charcoal-steak flavour.
