Dressed Steak

This recipe is totally back to front, because it is normally believed that steak should be marinaded before it is cooked to achieve a tender and juicy cut.  As unusual, I challenge that belief, as I like to cook my meat without any flavouring except seasoning, then leave it to rest in a marinade, resulting in fresh flavours that have not been burned away during the cooking process.  

You may have seen this with my Thyme and lemon Chicken recipe, again I like to dry cook the chicken then at the end squeeze over the lemon and add butter, resulting in a crispy outer skin, that is juicy at the same time.

So, back to my steaks, I simply cooked these lamb steaks on the griddle or the BBQ, then I have a dish ready and waiting with the marinade mixture, once the steaks are cooked they are left to rest in the dressing for about 5 min. I ususally use the griddle when the weather isn’t too nice so I can cook inside but still enjoy this delicious recipe. I love my griddle and highly recommend getting one if you don’t have one already. You can read the Best Electric Griddle guide to give you some more information about griddles.

A really great way to serve them, is to slice up the meat, place it on top of a salad, then drizzle the dressing over the meat and salad together.  It also works beautifully with chicken breasts for a killer chicken salad…
