These days, many of us see steak as a treat and would be happy to enjoy a succulent sirloin or delicious rib eye with a side of fries at a fancy dinner.

After all, you can’t go wrong with meat and fries – right?!

Well, according to chef William Morgan, if you want to reduce the staggering bill at the end of the night and save some money, it’s best to avoid steaks.

We all know steaks don’t come cheap at a restaurant, but here’s what William has to say.

William Morgan told The Mirror: “I see. You have just been seated and if you look at the menu you will only see incomprehensible fancy dishes.

“They think from GCSE French that ‘Poussin’ could mean duck or maybe chicken, but to be sure, order the steak – it’s a treat, after all.

“If that was ever you, or perhaps one of your table companions, then congratulations, you’ve just fallen for the oldest trick on the menu.

“Although the individual cut of meat is relatively expensive, most steak dishes take minutes to prepare and regularly charge more than double the price.”

According to this chef, if you want to save some money, you should rather buy a steak in the supermarket or at the butcher and prepare it yourself at home.

And don’t worry if you don’t know how to cook a steak, it’s incredibly easy.

William explained that instead of paying £30 for the steak at a restaurant, you better buy the fanciest cut of meat a butcher sells and cook it yourself.

In this way, you can ensure great quality without having to pay a restaurant price.

He added that to cook the most beautiful steak, you should “season it more than you think” and cook it in a “scalding hot pan.”

He advised turning it just once and putting a stick of butter on top to keep it moist.

When you’ve done this, let it rest on its side for five minutes.

No matter how hungry you are, don’t skip this important step.

It’s important to rest your step to allow the internal juices to redistribute – keeping your steak juicy and tender.

William added, “Well done, you just cooked a restaurant-standard steak for either half the cost or twice the quality.” I worked in a Michelin star restaurant and that’s why you should never order a steak
