Rib-eye with dirty martini butter

  • serves 2
  • A little effort

Olives and olive brine are what make a martini ‘dirty’. Whipped into butter they go particularly well with a good piece of steak, for example rib-eye. Use vodka for a cleaner flavour or gin for a botanical edge.

Method

  • 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.
