For The Rump Steak:

  • 800g Karan Beef Rump Steak
  • Salt and black pepper, to taste

Directions

For The Dried Fruit And Red Wine Sauce:

    1. Soak the raisins and prunes in the red wine for about 10-20 minutes.
    2. Once the dried fruit has softened, place the fruit with all of the soaking liquid into a small saucepan with the beef stock. Boil for about 15 minutes or until thickened and reduced. Blend the sauce in a food processor and strain through a sift. Add the butter and allow to melt in to create a smooth and creamy mouthfeel. Check for seasoning and adjust according to your taste.

For The Salad:

      1. Combine all ingredients and serve with the steak.

For The Lemon And Mint Dressing:

        1. Combine all ingredients in a mixing bowl and mix until well combined and emulsified. Dress the salad just before serving.

For The Rump Steak:

        1. Season the steak with salt and pepper. Heat a griddle pan over high heat and place the steak with the fat side down on the pan and cook for about 2-3 minutes, or until the fat has rendered out and is brown and crispy.
        2. Fry the steaks on each side for about 5-6 minutes, depending on the thickness and how you like your meat cooked.
        3. Serve the seared rump with the salad and the sauce – and don’t forget to pour yourself and your loved one a lovely glass of red wine with your romantic meal.
