But what exactly is a Hot Stone Steak?
Hot stone cooking is based on a simple principle of heating a stone in a specialist oven to approx. 440 C, the food is then placed directly onto the stone before friendly staff bring the sizzling stone to you. This is where you step in, when cooking your meat, especially steak, the high heat of the stone sears in the meat’s natural flavours and juices- meaning there is no need to add extra oils or fats to create a deliciously juicy steak cooked to your exact preference. But of course, if you choose to add a little something extra, there’s an extensive array of delicious sauces on the menu.
Unlike traditional cooking methods, your meat will not burn when cooked on a Hot Stone; the heat disparity ensures an even cook and will keep your food warm for up to 45 minutes. This gives you a chance to savour every bite and appreciate the aroma of a perfectly cooked steak.
