Prepare the salsa:
Place the strawberries, castor sugar and balsamic vinegar in a mixing bowl, mix thoroughly and leave to stand for at least half an hour to allow the flavours to develop. Add the remaining salsa ingredients just before you serve the steak.

Mix the olive oil, garlic, lemon juice, rosemary and black pepper. Rub this over the steak and leave the meat to marinate for at least half an hour, but preferably longer.

Grill the steak over medium coals or in a griddle pan until cooked as desired and serve immediately.

Tip of the day

Carving meat
Always allow your roast to rest for 5 to 15 minutes before carving so that the juices can be reabsorbed and the meat presents an even surface when sliced. Use a short- or long-bladed knife, and a two-pronged carving fork with a guard. To prevent the meat from losing juice, steady it with the flat of the fork, rather than piercing.
