  • 2 x 200g sirloin steaks
  • Zested rind and juice of 3 limes
  • 2tbsp soy sauce
  • 2cm piece of fresh ginger, grated
  • 1tbsp brown sugar
  • 1 red or green chilli, sliced
  • Small bunch of coriander, stalks finely chopped

For the salad:

  • 1/2 cucumber, sliced

  • Handful of mint leaves, basil leaves, chopped
  • 1 red onion, sliced
  • 100g mangetout and sugar-snap peas, sliced
  • 100g radishes, sliced

Leaving the meat to rest gives it time to relax and reabsorb lost liquid, resulting in a juicy, tender steak.


  1. Season the steak with plenty of black pepper the juice and zest of 1 lime and the soy. Set aside while you mix together the remaining lime juice and zest, ginger, brown sugar, chilli and coriander stalks.
  2. Heat a bbq or griddle to high and cook the steaks for 3-4 mins on each side, flipping, for medium rare or a few mins more to cook through. Leave to rest, while you arrange the salad on a platter. Slice the steak and place on top of salad and drizzle over dressing.
