Method

  1. Sprinkle a layer of salt and pepper onto a plate and season both sides of the steak. Heat a heavy based griddle pan or frying pan over a high heat and using tongs press the steak fat side down onto the pan until nicely browned. Turn the steak over and cook in the pan for two minutes, pressing down with a frying slice, until both sides are well browned.
  2. Add the butter, garlic and thyme to the pan and when melted use it to baste the steak. It should take about six minutes for medium-rare. Remove from the pan and leave in a warm oven to rest for 5 - 10 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, prepare the salsa verde by blending all ingredients together until smooth.
  4. Slice the steak and lay on a serving board. Top with the salsa verde, garnish the serving board with pea shoots, and serve.
