I really like Nigella. Even though she loves to eat in bed (I prefer a proper table) and has a spoon in her dressing gown pocket.
Most of her recipes are really good, especially her cookbook Nigella Express is perfekt for weekdays when you’re in a rush. This recipe, where you marinate the meat after cooking it, than before, comes from that cookbook.

Steak slice med citron och timjan, serves 2
300 g rump steak (preferrably thick)
2 cloves of garlic, smashed up
1/2 lemon, zest and juice
1 tsp salt
40 ml olive oil
3 stalks of thyme, just the leaves
Cut the fat off the meat and fry it in olive oil a couple of minutes (2-3 mins) on each side. Meanwhile mix the ingredients for the marinade. Put the meat in a dish and marinate each side for 4-5 minutes. Slice it into small pieces and put it back in the dish and serve it. A potato gratin and broccoli are good accompaniments.
