Marinated Rump Steak

This is oh, so simple, but oh, so good. Great if you're organised and can leave the steaks in the marinade the day before you need them, but failing that, a few hours will do. The recipe was created specially to serve with Aligot (mashed potatoes with garlic and cheese), but it needs two to eat and two to cook: one to do the steaks and one to whip the potatoes!

Equipment

You will also need a shallow dish or lidded polythene box large enough to hold the steaks closely and comfortably.

This recipe is taken from How to Cook Book One.

Method

Put the steaks in the shallow dish or polythene box, then mix the red wine, Worcestershire sauce and garlic together and pour this over the steaks. Cover with clingfilm or put the lid on, then place in the fridge for a few hours or, preferably, overnight.

When you're ready to cook the steaks, drain and dry them carefully with kitchen paper, reserving the marinade.

Now take a medium frying pan, place it on a high heat and heat the oil until it's very hot.

Then sear the steaks for 4 minutes on each side and, 2 minutes before the time is up, add the reserved marinade to the pan and let it bubble and reduce by about half.

When the steaks are cooked, remove them from the pan to warm serving plates, then, using your sharpest knife, cut them into slices diagonally and spoon the sauce over.

Garnish with the watercress and serve immediately with Aligot - see recipe below.
