Make your steak go further























I've blogged this way of cooking steak before ... it's delicious, it's easy, it's good for a party. And it's also a really good way to make a bit of expensive meat go further - one steak cut into ribbons will do for two or even three people. It's got those lemony-thyme flavours I love so much.

There were just the two of us for supper last night, the last time for a while, as full term at Oxford ended yesterday so Horatio will be home later today, and Easter is upon us. So this was a little treat, with cauliflower gratin.

Mm, excellent, Joanna, am certainly going to try that and with lemon and thyme.

Mon mari always slices the steaks that way... It makes even the less expensive, tougher cuts more tender!

I might have to elbow Danny away and try this next week when we have steak. Too delicious to pass by!

I'm going to be trying this. I don't cook much meat, so have never really got to grips with timings for steak. This is my answer - thank you!

I have printed this one off Joanna because we all love steak in our house - but it can be expensive and this way makes sense

Thanks for so many nice comments ... I find this recipe really useful because I'm not very confident about cooking steak, and this one works every time, as well as being economical

One of my Nigella Express favourites too ... but the first time I did it I didn't trust the paltry amount of steak and we had rather a lot leftover . It is just as delicious cold for breakfast!

Gillie, you're a girl after my own heart ;)

Hey guess what we (well they, I won't be there) are having for supper tonight... There was steak in the freezer, not a lot but enough, there was not going to be a lot of time to cook .. bingo!
