  • 2 x 500 g rump steaks, ideally 3 cm thick
  • 1 T olive oil
  • microgreens, to garnish
  • For the rub, mix:
  • 1 T garlic crushed
  • 6 fresh thyme sprigs
  • 1 t smoked sea salt
  • 1 t freshly ground black pepper
  • For the relish:
  • 1 T olive oil
  • 1 t garlic crushed
  • 4 spring onions, chopped
  • 1 t smoked paprika
  • 1 x 400 g tomatoes with added basil and oregano can
  • Smoked sea salt a pinch
  • Freshly ground black pepper a pinch
  • Sugar a pinch

Cooking Instructions

Heat a non-stick griddle pan over a high heat. Drizzle the olive oil all over the steaks and gently rub in. Spread the rub onto the steaks. Cook for 4–6 minutes a side for medium rare. This will depend on the thickness of the steak.

Remove the steaks from the heat, cover and allow to rest for 5 minutes. When the steaks have rested, slice them across the grain. Serve on a large plate or board, garnished with the microgreens with the relish on the side.

To make the relish, heat the oil and sauté the garlic and spring onion for 2 minutes, or until soft. Add the paprika and cook for 1 minute. Add the tomatoes and simmer for 15 minutes, or until the relish thickens. Season to taste and add the sugar.

Siba’s tip: Serve with potato or sweet potato mash, or with salad or a warm side of roast vegetables.
