You'll need

4 sirloin steaks (about 250gm each) For brushing: olive oil 1 tbsp lard 40 gm (¼ cup) capers in vinegar, drained ¼ cup torn basil leaves 1 tbsp oregano leaves 1 rosemary sprig 2 garlic cloves, thinly sliced 300 gm drained canned whole tomatoes 4 anchovy fillets To serve: crusty white bread, grilled

Method

  • 01
  • Preheat oven to 220C. Preheat a char-grill pan over high heat. Brush steaks with oil, season to taste and grill until browned (1-2 minutes each side). Transfer to a baking dish that fits steaks snugly in one layer (or an ovenproof frying pan), add lard, scatter with capers, herbs and garlic, then crush in tomatoes and place an anchovy on each steak. Transfer to oven and roast until steaks are just cooked through and a sauce forms (10-15 minutes). Serve with grilled bread.
