Argentine-style steak with Chimichurri and Rocket
Serves 2
  1. 2 Rump steaks, around 250g each, at room temperature
  2. 75g Rocket leaves
  3. Handful of fresh flat parsley, finely chopped
  4. Half tsp. fresh or dried oregano
  5. 1 Shallot, peeled and finely diced
  6. Half tsp. Chilli flakes
  7. 1 Lemon, halved
  8. 2 tbsp. Red wine vinegar
  9. Olive oil
  1. Prepare the Chimichurri by combining the parsley, oregano, shallot, chilli flakes and vinegar in a pestle and mortar or food processor. Pound or blitz to a sauce-like consistency and season with a squeeze of lemon. Set aside.
  2. Season the steaks and heat a griddle pan, or regular non-stick frying pan, over a high heat. Add a small amount of olive oil and once smoking, add the steaks. Fry for 3-5 minutes each side or until the meat retains a slight spring when pressed. Remove from the heat and leave to rest for 5 minutes.
  3. Dress the rocket in a bowl with a little olive oil and lemon juice. Slice the steak and serve on top of the rocket with the Chimichurri on the side.
