Preparation time: 15 minutes

Cooking time: 5 minutes

Serves 4

Ingredients

4 flat-iron steaks

Extra-virgin olive oil, to marinate, plus 2 tbsp

8 thin sourdough slices

Melted butter

120gm truffled brie, thinly sliced

Sea salt and cracked black pepper, to season

Rocket Salad Ingredients

2 cups rocket, roughly chopped

1/2 small red onion, thinly sliced

1/2 avocado, cut into small cubes

Drizzle of extra-virgin olive oil, to season

Sea salt and cracked black pepper, to season

Method

Season steaks with extra-virgin olive oil, salt and pepper and let marinate for 10 minutes, at room temperature.

Heat the oven grill to high. Brush bread with butter and grill, turning once, 2-3 minutes each side.

Meanwhile, heat olive oil in a large frying pan over high heat until smoking. Add steaks and fry, turning once, until browned and cooked to your liking (2 minutes each side for medium-rare).

Once cooked, top each steak with sliced brie and leave to rest and melt.

For the salad, toss rocket, red onion, avocado and olive oil in a bowl and season with salt and pepper.

Top sourdough with steaks and salad. Serve with any remaining salad.
