Ingredients

  • Vegetable oil
  • 250g British rib-eye steak
  • Large knob of butter
  • 2 chopped anchovy fillets
  • 2 tbsp drained capers
  • To serve: chips, watercress and mustard

 

Method

  1. Heat a splash of vegetable oil in a hot pan. Season the steak with salt and pepper, then put in the hot pan. Cook for 2-3 minutes on each side (for medium-rare) until the outside is brown and starting to crisp at the edges, then set aside on a warm plate to rest.
  2. Return the pan to the heat and add a large knob of butter along with the chopped anchovy fillets and capers. Stir to heat through and scrape up any crispy bits from the base of the pan.
  3. Return the steak to the pan along with any resting juices and spoon the hot butter over to coat. Top with a knob of fresh butter and serve with chips, watercress and your favourite mustard.
