Prep Time: 10 mins.

Cook Time: 15 mins.

 

Ingredients:

40g butter, softened

1 garlic clove, crushed

1 pinch parsley, finely chopped

1 pinch tarragon, finely chopped

1 pinch dill, finely chopped

3g Dijon mustard

210g scotch fillet steak

1 pinch sea salt

1 pinch black pepper

20ml extra virgin olive oil

8 stems broccolini

1 lemon wedges, to serve

 

Method:

  • Use a fork to mash the butter (approx. 2 tb) with the garlic, parsley, tarragon, dill, and mustard (approx. ½ tsp). Wrap in a piece of cling film and refrigerate to set for at least half an hour.
  • When you’re ready to eat, season the steak generously with salt and pepper and leave to sit.
  • Meanwhile, bring a saucepan of water to the boil and then steam your broccolini for 3-4 minutes or until bright green but still crunchy.
  • Heat a heavy-based frying pan or griddle over a high heat. Coat with olive oil (approx. 1 tb) and add the steak. Cook for five minutes on one side, then flip and cook for another 2-3 minutes on the other, or longer if you prefer it well done.
  • Transfer to a plate alongside the broccolini. Serve with herb butter and lemon wedge.
