Steak 3 Ways Recipe

Added 02 Feb 2017
Cook up the perfect steak with either a tasty homemade butter or a healthy addition of celeriac slaw to add an extra twist!

Total time 00:45 PT45M
Yield 2


  • 100g butter
  • 2 tbsp finely chopped parsley
  • 1 crushed garlic clove
  • ½ celeriac
  • Juice ½ lemon
  • 1 Granny Smith apple
  • 5 tbsp mayonnaise
  • 1 tbsp Dijon mustard
  • Handful chopped parsley
  • Sirloin steak
  • Rapeseed oil
  • Salt and pepper to season

Garlic & Herb Butter - Method

  1. Take 100g of butter out of the fridge for an hour to soften.
  2.  Beat the butter with a wooden spoon until it is soft and creamy.
  3.  Then beat in garlic and parsley.
  4. Tip the flavoured butter onto a square of baking parchment, spread out evenly, place another layer of parchment on top of the butter and smooth it out.
  5. Store in the fridge to firm up.

Celeriac Coleslaw - Method

  1. Use a vegetable peeler or sharp knife to remove the skin from the halved celeriac (rub a little lemon juice over the cut side of the other half before storing it, or it will turn brown.)
  2. Cut into thin slices, then cut into long matchstick strips as thin as you can.
  3. Do the same with the apple, discarding the core.
  4. Mix together the mayonnaise, mustard, lemon juice and parsley.
  5. Toss through the celeriac and apple.

Perfectly Cooked Steak - Method

  1. Heat your griddle or frying pan over a high heat, until smoking hot.
  2. Lightly brush the steak with a little olive oil and season with sea salt and freshly ground black pepper.
  3. Don’t griddle more than two steaks at a time, and keep them spaced well apart. If you add more than two steaks to the pan at once, the temperature will drop and the steak will stew, rather than fry.
  4. Sear fat on steak slightly before grilling steak.
  5. Don’t turn the steaks until good seared markings are achieved, then turn them over and cook on the other side. Every 2 minutes for 6 minutes.
  6. You must let the steak rest for about 3 minutes before serving, to allow the juices that have been drawn to the surface to relax back into the meat.
