Toasted Sesame Steak Salad – http://www.mysharedkitchen.wordpress.com

1 Sirloin steak (this is the cut I prefer but you can use rump or ribeye just as well)
6 cherry tomatoes halved
1 bunch of spring onions finely chopped
100g feta cheese
1 handful of chopped coriander
1 lemon juiced
Pinch of salt and pepper
1 table spoon of toasted sesame oil

In a salad bowl toss in the halved cherry tomatoes, spring onions, crumbled feta, coriander and lemon juice and mix with a spoon.

For the steak, which needs to be at room temperature, get your frying pan and olive oil very hot and add the steak cooking it for 2 mins on each side for medium rare. Take the steak off the heat, season with a pinch of salt and pepper and leave to rest for 5 minutes before slicing.

If you prefer your steak cooked differently here’s some tips:
BLUE: 1 min on each side
RARE: 1.5 min on each side
MED-RARE: 2 mins on each side
MEDIUM: 2.5 mins on each side
WELL DONE: 4-5 mins on each side (it might be a bit tough though)
