If you liked the lemon & thyme steak recipe I shared a few weeks back, I guarantee you are going to love this one even more. Inspired by this Jamie Oliver recipe, this is a super easy but super awesome tasting dish that is bound to get you a standing ovation at the dinner table.
Two good sized steaks
2 teaspoons Szechuan peppercorn
1 teaspoon five spice powder
1 teaspoon of salt and pepper
1 thumb-size piece of ginger
2-3 cloves of garlic
1 chilli (optional)
Juice of 1 lime
Pound the Szechuan peppercorns with the five spice, salt and pepper with a pestle and mortar. Drizzle some olive oil over the steaks then sprinkle the Szechuan five spice mix over and rub it in.
Heat a griddle or pan, then cook the steaks for 2-3 minutes per side, depending on how well or rare you like them done. Rest the steaks 5-10 minutes after cooking, then slice them up thinly.
Grate the ginger, garlic and ginger and sprinkle over the steak slices and toss gently with the meat juices. Squeeze the lime juice over before serving.
The taste is almost orgasmic. My regular dinner patron was too full after dinner to stand up to give me my standing ovation, but he assured me that it deserved one.
