Rub the steak with 1 tsp oil and season. Fry in a hot pan for 2-2½ mins each side (depending on thickness), for medium rare. Transfer to a plate, cover loosely with foil and rest for 5 mins.

Divide the salad leaves, beansprouts and grapes between 2 serving bowls. Thinly slice the steak and add the juices to the dressing. Drizzle this over the salads, toss with the sliced beef and serve immediately with rice, if you like.
Cooking steakFor the most succulent steak, cook it from room temperature rather than from the fridge. Always allow it to rest for a few minutes before eating, to allow the juices to settle within the meat.
