The second of the fabulous recipes developed by Merrilees Parker, chef and food consultant using the Delivita wood fired oven, and of course, The Ethical Butcher's 100% grass fed beef.
FOR THE STEAK
600g steak, at room temperature
2 tbsp smoked rapeseed oil
2 tbsp seasoning
FOR THE BABY GEM
2 English baby gem, halved with cores intact
1 tbsp rapeseed oil
FOR THE RADISH SALAD
100g English radishes sliced very thinly on a mandolin or with a super sharp knife
Edible flowers (Optional but recommended.)
50g mustard cress
FOR THE LEMON DRESSING
25ml fresh lemon juice
50ml rapeseed oil
50ml extra virgin olive oil
FOR THE CAESAR DRESSING
4 tbsp mayonnaise
1 tsp garlic
15g finely grated Parmesan
Squeeze of lemon
FOR THE CHARCOAL PIZZA
2 charcoal/spiralina dough balls
2 tbsp wild garlic oil or flavoured oil of your choice
2 tsp of sea salt flakes
Sea salt and black pepper.
Brush the steaks with the smoked rapeseed oil and sprinkle over the seasoning.
Place onto the tray and into the very hot Delivita Wood Fired Oven oven and cook for 15-20 minutes turning once.
Meanwhile make the Caesar dressing by mixing the ingredients for the dressing in a bowl with a hand blender and keep refrigerated until you need it. This can be made in advance.
Make the lemon dressing by putting all the ingredients into a jar and shaking well. This can also be made in advance.
Once the steak is cooked remove from the tray and allow to rest. Use the same tray for the baby gem. Simply brush them with the oil and season with sea salt and black pepper.
Place cut side down onto the tray, place in the oven and cook for 5-6 minutes.
Bring the oven back up to hot temperature and prep your dough. Brush all over with the oil but reserve a little for putting on after. Cook in the oven for 30-90 seconds turning every 30 seconds.
When cooked place on boards and dress with the remaining oil.
To serve, slice the steak and divide between four plates.
Place a baby gem half on each plate.
Dress the radishes and cress with the lemon dressing and divide between the plates.
Drizzle some Caesar dressing over the gem and top each with some Parmesan shavings. Finish with a few edible flowers on the radish salad and some slices of the garlic pizza bread.
