Nigella’s steak slice with lemon and thyme

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.

 Do you like Nigella?

A slightly out of focus photo of my new Le Creuset dish, in the colour Granite. Love it!

 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

black pepper 

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.
