Method

  1. Remove the steak from the fridge and leave to come up to room temperature.
  2. To make the salsa, peel the garlic, deseed the chillies, trim the spring onions and roughly chop the tomatoes. Reserve a few coriander sprigs, then chop the rest (stalks and all), with the mint leaves, garlic, chillies, spring onions and tomatoes on a large board – keep chopping and mixing until super-fine.
  3. Season with sea salt and black pepper, then squeeze over most of the lime juice, and drizzle lightly with extra virgin olive oil. Mix together well, taste and tweak with a little more salt, pepper or lime juice, then scrape into a bowl.
  4. Heat a frying pan or griddle pan over a high heat. Season the steak with the salt, pepper, and drizzle with olive oil.
  5. Cook the steak in the hot pan for 6 to 7 minutes on each side, or until cooked to your liking. Halve the garlic clove, and rub the steak with the cut side during cooking for bonus flavour. Remove to a plate to rest.
  6. Cut the steak against the grain and with the knife at an angle into ½cm slices, then arrange on a serving platter or divide between plates.
  7. Finish with a few dollops of salsa, and scatter over the reserved coriander leaves. Drizzle over any resting juices, then tuck in.

Tips

Make sure your meat is at room temperature before you start cooking – that way it will cook at the same temperature all the way through.

It’s really important to rest the steaks once it’s cooked – this allows the juices to settle, so you don’t lose them all when you slice or carve the steak.
