Simple Supper: Steak salad recipe

Serves 2

2 pieces of good quality steak (I used 200g sirloin)
2 large handfuls of winter salad leaves or rocket
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
Parsley, finely chopped

Remove the steak from the fridge ahead of cooking to bring up to room temperature. Heat a griddle pan to a high heat and massage a little olive oil and seasoning into the steaks. When the pan is smoking hot add a little butter and then cook the steaks on each side for 3 minutes.
Cut the steak into thin strips and lay across the salad leaves, drizzle the juices from the pan over the steak and scatter the parsley on top.
Dress generously with a rich salad dressing and serve immediately.

Particularly good with mashed potato.
