How can I cook it: 

These steaks are suitable for grilling or pan-frying. Because they are very lean they will be dry and tough if cooked more than medium.  To cook a  2cm/3-4 in thich steak:

Rare: 2 ½ minutes each side

Medium rare: 4 minutes each side

Medium: 6 minutes each side

Leave to rest for a couple of minutes before serving.

What else could I use: 

If you prefer your steak cooked between medium and well-done you might want to try a steak that tastes better with more cooking, like a rib eye. If you are looking for something tender and lean which tastes delicious cooked rare to medium, try a fillet or a flat iron if you like more flavour.
