Let’s make some steak today! The secret with steak is that it needs to be well aged. Ask for a prime sirloin steak from your butcher. Ensure it has some marbling with a good layer of fat on the edges.
What you will need:
500g well-aged sirloin steak
1 bunch of fresh rosemary
Salt and pepper to taste
5 fresh tomatoes
200g baby carrots

2 tablespoons oil
What to do:
Put some strokes on the steak and season it with salt and pepper using a knife. The strokes will make the salt and pepper infuse well and help it cook on the inside. Chop some rosemary and sprinkle on the steak.
In a non-stick pan over medium heat, add oil and pan sear the steak 5-8 minutes each side. Reduce heat to low and let it cook for another two minutes. Remove the steak and set aside to rest.
Cut tomatoes into halves. Season them with salt then pan fry using the same steak pan over medium heat with the remaining oil in the pan. This will give the tomatoes a gorgeous look and flavour.
