Asian Fillet Steak

I actually think this could be my favourite steak recipe. We’ve had it twice in one week as my first photograph was disappointing 🙄 so thought I’d better make it again. It’s really all about the marinade which doubles up as a dressing. You could use any cut of steak for this and it would still be delicious.⠀ ⠀ ⠀ Serves 2⠀ ⠀ INGREDIENTS ⠀ 2 fillet steak approximately 4cm thick⠀ 3 Pak Choi bulbs⠀ ⠀ Dressing marinade ⠀ ⠀ 2 cloves garlic crushed ⠀ 1 red chilli chopped ⠀ 4 cm piece of ginger grated ⠀ 1 spring onion finely chopped ⠀ 1 tablespoon chopped coriander ⠀ Juice of 1 lime⠀ 2 tablespoons soy sauce ⠀ 2 tablespoons sesame oil ⠀ 1 teaspoon honey ⠀ ⠀ METHOD ⠀ Mix the dressing ingredients together in a bowl. Pour a 1/3 of the dressing over the steaks, season and leave for 30 minutes.⠀ ⠀ In a large pan heat up a little oil. When very hot add the steaks. Cook on each side for 2 minutes. Cradle with foil, turn off and remove from the heat. Leave the steak in the hot pan for 5 minutes. The residual heat should mean they are beautifully pink (fingers crossed) and rare. ⠀ ⠀ Slice the Pak Choi in half lengthways and pan fry in ground nut oil until just soft. ⠀ Slice the steak and drizzle both the steak and Pak Choi with the rest of the dressing. Serve with noodles. ⠀ ⠀
