Servings: Change Serving



Heat a frying or griddle pan. Rub olive oil into the steak and seal it over a high heat. Turn down the heat and cook to your preference. Leave to rest in a warm place.

Fry the bacon in a large frying pan or wok until crisp and golden brown and drain on kitchen towel.

Stir-fry the marrows, broccoli and beans and garlic for several minutes in the same wok. Add the stock, balsamic vinegar and sugar and let it cook for 3 minutes. Remove from the plate and stir in the basil.

Divide the stir-fried vegetables between four plates, spread the wholegrain mustard over the steak and cut into slices. Divide the steak slices between the plates and sprinkle the bacon on top. Serve immediately.

Wine recommendation:
Choose a red wine with body, but not so heavy that it overwhelms the flavour of the stir-fry.

Tip of the day

White pepper
Use white pepper when making pale, creamy sauces or clear stock because it won't discolour the sauce.
