Rare Rump Steak with Radish, Asian Greens, Chilli, Soy and Roasted Peanuts
Serves: 4
PREP: 10 minutes
COOK: 10 minutes

This beautiful and nutritious dish is inspired by the flavours of Asian cooking. Slice the steaks at a jaunty angle just before plating up and you will have a stunningly presented but (secretly) very simple to prepare dish to present to your guests or family. The recipe calls for Choy Sum greens. This literally means “vegetable heart” in Cantonese and can be applied to the “heart” or flowering stem of almost any vegetable including non-traditionally East Asian greens such as broccoli.
