Steak with a Ginger Asparagus Mushroom Medley

This is a simple, yet really tasty dish.  The ginger gives such a wonderful flavour to the vegetables yet the full taste of the beautiful steak shines through and the tomatoes add just a touch of sharp sweetness.  No sauce is needed – it is perfectly balanced as it is.   Cook the steak as rare, or as well-done as you like;  ring the changes with different cuts of beef such as sirloin or rump but I have to admit I enjoy a nice piece of fillet any day.

INGREDIENTS: Serves 2

2 beef medallions (fillet steaks) or steak of your choice
Bunch of asparagus shoots, chopped into small lengths
6 to 8 cherry tomatoes, halved
Pack of button mushrooms, chopped
1 onion, chopped
¼ cup fresh parsley, chopped
½ tablespoon fresh ginger, grated
Oil of choice to cook.
Salt to taste

METHOD:

Rub the salt over the fillet steaks.2017-01-02_16-50-02_548
Heat a tablespoon of oil (extra-virgin olive, or coconut) in a fry pan and add the fillet steak. Cook for a few minutes each side until the steak is to your liking (2 minutes each side for rare, more for medium or well done).   Alternatively, grill the steaks.

Sit the steak on a plate loosely covered with foil to rest as some liquid will drain out.
