A Winter salad with salt crusted porterhouse


  • Grill the lightly oiled mushrooms and capsicum until tender. Then slice the capsicum and quarter the mushrooms. 
  • Spray the steaks with oil and grill until sealed, sprinkling with pepper once sealed.
  • Then place the steaks on a bed of sea salt for about 10 mins, turning over once or twice.
  • Lightly press the sage leaves with a rolling pin and then put in a heavy-bottomed pot with the olive oil and lemon zest. Very gently cook for about 10 mins. Then remove the pot from the heat and set aside. 
  • Scrape off most of the salt from the steaks and grill to the desired degree. Set aside to rest for a few minutes, before slicing.
  • Gently toss the lettuce leaves, tomatoes, mushrooms, capsicum and olives with the sage oil to taste (leaving out the sage leaves). 
  • To serve, mound a bed of the salad on individual plates and top with the sliced steak and a little more sage oil.
