  • Meanwhile, for olive oil and soft-herb hollandaise, place vinegar and peppercorns in a small saucepan and simmer over low heat until reduced, then strain and discard solids. Place oil in a saucepan and cook over low heat until just warm (do not overheat). Place egg yolks, strained vinegar mixture and 2 tbsp water in a heatproof bowl over a saucepan of simmering water and whisk over low heat until mixture has tripled in volume and holds a trail. Whisking continuously, slowly add warm oil to egg mixture and whisk until emulsified, then remove from heat and season to taste with sea salt and cayenne; keep warm. Just before serving, stir in lemon juice and herbs.

  • Cut each piece of beef, against the grain, into 3 thick slices, place on warm plates and sprinkle with a little sea salt, then divide artichokes among plates. Serve immediately, with olive oil and soft-herb hollandaise and steamed broccolini passed separately.
