This is such a quick and delicious way to cook a sirloin. I needed a bit of lunch and a filling for my picnic later.
In the pestle and mortar, mix up a few sprigs of rosemary, a glug of olive oil, Maldon salt, black pepper and some lemon zest and juice. Mash this up and coat the steak.
Heat a griddle pan – hot. Quickly cook each side of the sirloin for a bout 2 – 3 minutes per side depending on how thick it is. Allow it to rest for a few minutes, then cut it into thin slices and put back into the marinade and coat. Add a crushed clove of garlic (I don’t add this earlier as I don’t want the garlic to burn in the first cooking stage).
Turn the griddle pan back on and very quickly toss the saucy strips around – about a minute. Remove and put back into the bowl with the last little bit of sauce. Squeeze over some more lemon juice and then eat immediately.
I ate this with a simple salad of red onions, very ripe tomatoes, green pepper and crumbled feta mixed with a bit of oregano and red wine vinegar. All of this stuffed into a whole wheat pita. So yumalicious.
