Goog old Hardly Normals for giving you your money back. That is good news.
May all dairy items in your fridge be of questionable vintage.

Yvette, I'm interested to know how you kept your steaks at 56 degrees for 2 hours - did you use a water bath, or a thermomix, or some kind of gadget to modify a slow cooker? (If either of the two latter options, did you test the water temperature at any point to check it?). It's a bloody shame (pun intended!) to ruin good fillet steak!! :)

Did it look medium rare when it came out? Or look over-cooked?

Well, the appearance of steak straight out of the water bath isn't that attractive (assuming it's medium rare, or not too far either side), it's the quick searing in/on a very hot pan which gives it the flavour and an attractive look - although by the sounds of it, if it seemed undercooked and was chewy etc., it was the steak that was bad! Hope you have better luck next time! :)
