Cooking a whole piece of steak is great for casual entertaining and the fresh flavours in this dressing also go well with salmon, fish or chicken.
800 gram piece rump steak
sea salt and freshly ground pepper
Spring onion dressing
3 tablespoons olive oil
2 teaspoons soy sauce
1 teaspoon sesame oil
1–2 teaspoons wasabi paste or to taste
2 cloves garlic, crushed
1 teaspoon grated fresh ginger
2 tablespoons lime juice
2 spring onions, thinly sliced, white and green parts
Dressing: Whisk all the ingredients, except the spring onions, in a bowl. Season and stir in the spring onions.
Steak: Rub the steak with oil, salt and pepper. Heat a sauté pan or ridged grill until hot then cook the rump for 4–5 minutes each side. Cooking time will depend on the thickness of the steak.
Transfer to a large plate, cover loosely and rest for 5 minutes.
To serve: Slice the steak against the grain and place on a platter or board. Spoon some of the dressing over the steak, serving the rest separately. This is lovely served with cooked broccolini topped with thinly sliced red chilli.
