Salted ribe eye with an Arabic salad

Method

  • Mix together the red onion with the juice of 1 lemon until well combined. Then set aside for about 10 mins to marinate. 
  • To make the dressing, whisk up the garlic with the remaining lemon juice, 3 tbsp oil, the Ras el Hanout and the mint. 
  • Sprinkle the steaks with a little ground pepper and cook on a preheated, oiled ridged grill (or BBQ) to the desired degree. Then sit the steaks on a bed of salt and press in well on both sides. 
  • Toss the tomatoes, cucumber, capsicum, parsley and sourdough with the dressing to taste. 
  • Serve the steaks on individual plates with a good mound of salad alongside and a sprinkling of oil over the meat.
