Special Offer Grillit from Le Creuset

For the month of July we are delighted to offer this Le Creuset 20cm Square Grillit at a great price of €42.00 - a fantastic €18.00 off the recommended retail price.
This grillit is ideal for cooking for one or two people and is available in 4 colours: Volcanic Orange, Cerise Red, Black and Almond Cream. Try out this fantastic Summer Recipe from Le Creuset:
Grilled Steak with Melted Cheese

Use this recipe for any good quality steak, grilled as your family prefers it. The cheese topping suggested here is a blue cheese, but your favourite cheese can also be used. This recipe can be cooked on any ribbed grill that fits under your cooker grill.

  • a little corn oil, for greasing

  • 4 fillet or sirloin steaks, each 2.5 cm (1-inch) thick

  • 225 g (8 ounces) blue cheese, such as roquefort, dolcelatte, or gorgonzola

  • a little coarse sea salt and freshly ground black pepper

Heat the grill over medium heat on the hob. Lightly grease the surface of the grill when it is hot.
Dry the surface of the steaks with paper towels, then season well.
Grill the steaks for 21⁄2-3 minutes on each side for rare steaks; 4-5 minutes on each side for medium; 5-6 minutes on each side for well done. Meanwhile, heat the cooker grill on high.
As soon as the steaks are cooked, crumble the blue cheese over the top and immediately transfer the grill to the cooker grill. Cook just until the cheese begins to melt; it will continue melting as it is served.
Take the sizzle to the table by serving the steaks straight from the grill. Place a thick, heatproof mat under the grill because it will be very hot.
