Method

  1. Take the steak out of the fridge 30 mins ahead of frying it. Mix the chimichurri ingredients with 1 tbsp water, season and set aside. Mix the ingredients for the chilli & lime sauce and set aside. Separate the Baby Gem lettuces so you have 20 leaves (‘cups’). 

  2. Heat a non-stick frying pan over a medium-high heat. Coat the steak in the oil, season, then fry for 2-3 mins on each side. Set aside for 10 mins, then cut into 20 slices. Place a steak strip on each cup. To serve, top half with the chimichurri and half with the chilli & lime sauce.
