Recipe tip: when making the dirty martini butter, you can use vodka for a cleaner flavour or gin for a botanical edge.


  • 50g butter with salted crystals
  • 8 green olives, pitted and chopped
  • 1tbsp gin or vodka
  • 2 rib-eye steaks (or any other cut of steak), at room temperature
  • olive oil


  • STEP 1

    Rub the steaks with a little olive oil and season well. Cook in a frying pan or on a griddle, making sure it is very hot before you begin. As a guide time for steaks about 2.5cm thick, cook the steak for 2 minutes on each side for rare, and 3 for medium rare and 4 minutes or longer for well done. Rest the steak for 5 minutes and then serve with a large spoonful of butter (or some slices if chilled) to melt onto it.
