Ingredients

  • 1

    rump steak (1-inch thick) weighing approximately 1 pound 4 ounces

  • Oil, for greasing

  • 5

    stalks fresh thyme to give 1 tablespoon of stripped leaves

  • 2

    bruised cloves garlic

  • 1/3

    cup extra-virgin olive oil

  • 1/2

    lemon, zested and juiced

  • 1

    teaspoon Maldon salt or 1/2 teaspoon table salt

  • Good grinding fresh pepper

Directions

Cut away the fat from around the edge of the steak while you heat a griddle or pan. Brush the steak with oil to prevent it sticking to the griddle or pan, and then cook for 3 minutes a side plus 1 minute each side turned again (this gives you pretty griddle marks) for desirably rare meat; the lemon in the post-hoc marinade 'cooks' it a little more. While the steak is cooking, place the thyme leaves, garlic, oil, lemon zest, juice, salt and pepper in a wide shallow dish. Once the steak is cooked, place it in the dish of marinade for 4 minutes a side, before removing it to a board and slicing thinly on the diagonal.
