Solo: Sirloin Steak & Secret Sauce

Sirloin steak seasoned and seared to perfection and then left to rest for maximum tenderness. Served with green beans flavoured in fresh rosemary butter and a delectable "secret sauce" made with mayonnaise, sour cream and horseradish. Nom nom!




Ingredients to serve 1

  • 1x200g x sirloin steak
  • ½ tbsp x mayonnaise
  • ½ tbsp x sour cream
  • ¼ tsp x yellow mustard powder
  • ¼ tsp x horseradish
  • 75g x green beans - trim ends
  • ½ branch x rosemary - strip leaves and chop finely
  • tin foil, butter, olive oil, salt & pepper (from your pantry)

Method

Step 1

Put a dry griddle/frying pan on high heat. On a chopping board rub both sides of the steak with salt, pepper and olive oil. Place steak in hot pan and sear for 2 to 3 minutes either side for a medium steak, turning only once (using tongs/spoons). Adjust time to suit your preference. When done, remove and set aside on a plate covered with tin foil to rest for about 10 minutes.

Step 2

Put a saucepan of lightly salted water onto boil. Add the greens beans and boil for about 4 minutes until tender but still a bit crunchy. Drain water away, return saucepan to the stove (turn the heat OFF). Add a knob or two of butter and the rosemary and allow to stand for a few minutes until the butter is melted.

Step 3

To make the secret sauce, mix the following ingredients in a bowl: mayonnaise, sour cream, mustard powder and horseradish.

Step 4

Using a very sharp knife, slice the steak against the grain: this means cutting across (and not parallel to) the long parallel muscle fibres in the meat creating short fibres in each piece and delivering tender slices of meat.

Step 5

To serve, place the beans on the plate, top with the steak slices, a dollop of secret sauce and a twist of black pepper.
