Ages ago Rob read a blog post on "How to Turn Cheap "Choice" Steaks into Gucci "Prime" Steaks" and nearly every time he's cooked steak since (steak is Rob's specialty, I'm useless at it) he's used this method. I decided to have a go at it myself and make a marinade for it, I also decided to be adventurous and have a steak myself. I'm not a fan of it personally, but this was rather nice, however don't think that I'll order steak in a restaurant or anything.
So here it is....
Beef with Soy Sauce and Ginger
2 (8 ounce/ 225 gram) sirloin steaks
Pinch of mixed herbs (optional)
8 tablespoons soy sauce
1 tsp ground ginger
1 red chilli, deseeded and finely chopped
1 garlic clove, finely grated
1 lime, juiced
1. Cover your steaks in the salt and mixed herbs. Allow to rest for 1 hour. (See the article for details)
2. Mix the soy sauce, ginger, chilli, garlic and lime juice. Pour over the steaks and allow to marinade for 15 minutes.
3. On a very hot griddle pan, cook the sirloin steaks until medium or to your liking.
We served boiled potatoes and peas with Rob's. Champ and peas with mine.
