Mish Delish Good Food Blog

I’m a professional food stylist and currently prepping my own series of cookbooks and a cooking show. In my food catering business, Mishka La Mushka, I catered private and corporate functions and events big and small, designed food in hat boxes for the Spring Racing Carnival and created too many themed kids birthday parties to mention. But now I love food styling and sharing my fun food ideas with mums wanting to create restaurant-quality meals at home, for kids and family. So let’s get cooking!

This dish does not really require a recipe it’s so simple, but once you cook a steak like this you won’t look back.

Tagliata di manzo
Serves 2 adults
You’ll need:
2 porterhouse steaks
Olive oil
Salt & pepper
Aged balsamic
1 small handful capers in salt, washed & drained
2 large handfuls of rocket
1 lemon, chopped into wedges

Fresh parmesan shavings (optional)

Heat a grill pan or your bbq until really hot (as hot as it gets).
Just before putting the steaks on the grill, season them generously with sea salt & pepper. Don’t skimp as the seasoning helps a beautiful crust form on the meat.
Drizzle with olive oil and put the steaks on the heat. Resist the temptation to turn them quickly just let them cook for a 3 mins and lift slightly to see if caramelised. Turn if they are looking nice and golden.
Cook to your liking, a couple of minutes on each side will get them medium rare.
Take the meat off the heat and rest in loosely covered foil for a few minutes whilst you put together the salad. Put the rocket and capers in a bowl and toss. Drizzle with a little balsamic and place on the plate.
Slice the steak thickly and arrange over the top of the rocket. Drizzle the resting juices over the meat and garnish with a wedge of lemon.You could also further dress the dish with some parmesan shavings.
