For the herb salad


  1. For the steak, place the breadcrumbs, parsley, chilli and half of the olive oil into a mini-food processor, season well with salt and freshly ground black pepper and blend until the parsley is finely chopped.

  2. Transfer the breadcrumb mixture to a plate. Rub the steak with olive oil, then roll in the breadcrumb mixture.

  3. Heat the remaining olive oil in a frying pan until just beginning to smoke, place the steak into the pan and fry for 3-4 minutes on each side, or until cooked to your liking. Leave the steak to rest for five minutes, then slice in half.

  4. For the herb salad, place the herbs into a bowl, then add the soy sauce, balsamic vinegar and oil and stir well to coat the herbs.

  5. To serve, place the herb salad onto a plate with the steak.
