A very generous friend of mine heard that I was sick and told me he was sending a rescue package. He didn’t tell me what was in it but told me to wait in my flat between certain hours of the day for it to arrive. Given that I was in bed with some sort of virus, this was fairly straight forward.
The delivery came from Turner and George, a butchers near Angel tube station.
When it was time to cook I heated some sesame oil on a griddle (the hob was set to high) then added the steak, cooking it for just over a minute on each side. I then left it to rest for a few minutes while I arranged the plate.
It’s not the most artistic dinner I’ve ever served, but I’m both ill and hungry. I served the steak with a fried egg on top, with broccoli, cherry tomatoes and a yoghurt and mustard sauce, with sesame seeds and a little hot sauce sprinkled over the top.
It was such a good cut and tasted lovely. I felt like it definitely contributed to my recovery. However, during healthier times, something so exquisite might also make a good martini accompaniment (yes, I’m obsessed). Cook the steak as above, just before you pour your drink, then cut it into thin slices to serve on a plate alongside the martini. Exquisite.
