I love steak at the moment, but I think any meat without a sauce or dressing is rather boring. I have to admit that I do like creamy sauces, as long as they are not too rich, with crispy roast potatoes and green vegetables, but I’m trying to be healthy at the moment so today I made a dressing packed full of fresh herbs, green chillies and lemon juice. Although this may look like a meaty dish, the dressing would be equally good served on grilled halloumi or buffalo mozzarella. It could also easily be adapted to use any of your favourite herbs or to use lime juice instead of lemon.
Ingredients – serves 2
1 tbsp chopped mint
1 tbsp chopped coriander
1 crushed garlic clove
1 green chilli pepper
Juice of 1-2 lemons, depending on how juicy they are and how lemony you want the dressing.
Extra virgin olive oil
How to Make the Dressing
1. Chop up all the herbs, the chilli and crush the garlic clove. Put in a bowl. Add the lemon juice, salt and black pepper. Add a good glug of olive oil. Taste and add extra seasoning, chilli or lemon juice.
2. Serve the sauce on top of steak.
