Meat cooked this way is quick, simple and totally delicious. Rubbing the top of the meat with a garlic clove as it cooks is a little trick I've learned from the American barbecue king, Adam Perry Lang. You're standing there watching the meat cook anyway, so you may as well keep busy and give it some love! It's such a small thing but it really makes the meat taste great -- give it a try, you'll never go back.

  • A small bunch of fresh rosemary
  • Sea salt and freshly ground
  • Black pepper
  • Olive oil
  • 1.5- to 2-pound piece skirt steak
  • 1 large clove of garlic
  • For the dressing
  • 2 tablespoons creme fraiche or sour cream
  • 1 tablespoon grated horseradish, fresh or jarred
  • Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 lemon
  • Extra virgin olive oil
  • Cooking Directions

    Put a grill pan on a high heat and let it get screaming hot. Pick the rosemary leaves off the woody stalks and finely chop. Mix with a good pinch of salt and pepper and scatter over your clean board. Drizzle olive oil over both sides of the steaks and roll them in the rosemary and seasoning. Put the creme fraiche (or sour cream) and horseradish into a small bowl with a pinch of salt and pepper. Halve your lemon and add a squeeze of juice to the bowl. Add a splash of extra virgin olive oil and mix well. Taste and add a little more horseradish if you think it needs to taste more fiery.

    Lay the steak in your hot pan and press down gently. Wait a minute, then turn over. Cut the tip off the garlic clove and discard. Rub the hot, charred side of the meat with the garlic. Flip the steak again after another minute, repeat the garlic rub, and press down again. For medium-rare meat, cook for around 4 to 5 minutes on each side. For well-done meat, cook for a few minutes more. Remove the steaks from the grill to a plate to rest for a few minutes. Drizzle with a little olive oil to keep them from drying out.

    Place your steaks on clean plates and spoon a good dollop of the horseradish sauce on top or next to them. Drizzle some of the lovely resting juices on top, and a little extra virgin olive oil. Alternatively you can slice the steaks in half at an angle and serve them on a bed of something light and fresh, like your favorite pick and mix salad, with the horseradish sauce.
