In our previous episode we looked at xanthan gum, and used it to make a simple vinaigrette and a thick anchovy and blue cheese dressing. Today we're doing a super-quick grilled steak topped with the anchovy blue cheese dressing, thinned with the vinaigrette.
  • 2 x 250g Prime sirloin steaks, cut 30mm thick
  • [url:1]100g Anchovy & blue cheese dressing (prepared in previous episode - click to see)
  • 25-50ml quick Vinaigrette (prepared in previous episode - click to see)[/url]
  • 15ml Butter
  1. You need a couple of juicy sirloin steaks, cut to 1 and a quarter inch thick..... in metric that's about 30mm.
  2. Stand the steaks on their fatty edge and press 2 skewers through the steaks to secure them.
  3. Flip the steaks over and season the fatty strips liberally with salt and cracked black pepper.
  4. Heat a heavy pan over medium high heat and add a tablespoon of butter.
  5. When the butter is sizzling, place the steaks fatty side down in the pan.
  6. Allow the steaks to cook like this for 6 to 8 minutes. This renders and crisps the fatty edge. The rendered fat mixes with butter resulting in an amazing flavor when the steak is separated and grilled.
  7. Once the fatty strip is crispy and well browned, remove the skewers and drop the steaks flat in the pan.
  8. Grill the steaks for 2 minutes per side for medium rare, or an extra 30 seconds per side for medium.
  9. In the meantime, thin the anchovy blue cheese dressing using some of the vinaigrette. Pop this in your microwave and heat it gently for about 60 seconds.
  10. Remove the steaks from the pan, allow them to rest for a couple of minutes, then serve topped with the sauce and accompaniments of your choice.
  11. And there it is, a super-quick, super-tender and super-tasty grilled sirloin with an amazing sauce. Stay tuned for our next episode where we're grilling a magnificent steak with Portabellini mushrooms and a super-quick red wine sauce using xanthan gum.
