Throwing the beans on the barbecue streamlines the cooking process but also adds a nice complexity to this dish which works well with the Japanese flavours in the dressing.


Tahini-ginger dressing


1.For tahini-ginger dressing, blitz ingredients in a small food processor until smooth and season to taste.
2.Heat a barbecue or large char-grill pan to high heat. Season steaks, smear with mustard, drizzle with oil and grill until well browned and cooked to your liking (2-3 minutes each side), then transfer to a plate, cover loosely with foil and rest for 5 minutes.
3.Meanwhile drizzle beans with oil, season to taste and grill, turning occasionally, until slightly charred (3-4 minutes). Serve steaks and beans drizzled with tahini-ginger dressing and topped with spring onion and sesame seeds.
