Preparation Time: 5 minutes
Cooking Time: 5 minutes
“I’m a big fan of salads, if I have a chef on trial at the pub I asked them to make me a salad and see how creative they can be! This is the same, beef with the sweet honey dressing, fresh radishes and lovely red cherry tomatoes. Seasonal, fresh colourful, healthy and very tasty!”
1 x 8oz ribeye steak
100g of fresh watercress or baby leaf salad
10 cherry tomatoes
8 stems of asparagus (hard root removed)
For the honey dressing:
½ a cup of extra virgin olive oil or pomace oil
2 tbsp of white wine vinegar
1 tsp of honey
1 tsp Dijon mustard
1 tsp wholegrain mustard
Salt and pepper to taste
Start by heating up a char grill pan on the BBQ until hot, then add a little oil and add your trimmed asparagus and cook until just tender, set aside until later. Get your Ribeye steak, season with sea salt and place on to the BBQ to cook for 2-3 minutes on one side then turn over and cook for 2-3 minutes on the other side (medium rare) cook for longer if you want more well done. Once you’ve done this remove from the BBQ and allow to rest in a warm place for 5 minutes before serving.
Make your dressing by adding all the ingredients together and whisking then season to taste, cut your radishes into very thin slices then put in a bowl with your watercress or leaf. Slice your cherry tomatoes in half add to the bowl then drizzle your dressing over the salad and toss to mix together.
To serve place half of the dressed salad on each plate then slice the ribeye into strips and share between the two plates and serve.
