    Probably the most widely-used oil in cooking, olive oil is pressed from fresh olives. It's…


  1. Put the steak in a shallow dish and sprinkle with the shallots, vinegar, oil, sea salt and ground black pepper. Rub over the meat with your hands. Leave for at least a hour, or overnight in the fridge.

  3. Serve thinly sliced with new potatoes and salad, or in tortillas, with lettuce, avocado and soured cream.

this went down very well at todays bbq. everyone could taste the difference between this and the prepacked garbage you can by. for an extra few mins prep, its well worth it.

I had a multi pack of rump steak and made this with half and half without.

without - dry, tough falvaourless
with - moist and soft, melt in the mouth and full of a sweet chutney like flavour.

I have made this before but I changed the red wine vinegar to balsmic and used fresh rosemary from my garden and did leave it for about 1-2 hours in the fridge. it was really lovely and I severed it with crushed roasted new potatoes. Went down really well with my new partner and we are still together 3 years on.
