This Steak Recipe is from New Classics by Marcus Wareing.
Hanger, or onglet, is a very tender cut of meat that literally hangs between the fillet and the rib. I highly recommend brining this cut of meat as it not only seasons it but also tenderises it slightly, ensuring it melts in the mouth when cooked.
– 6 eggs
– 4 hanger (or onglet) steaks (approx. 200–250g each), brined
– Olive oil, for brushing
– Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
– 50g capers, finely chopped
– 50g gherkins, finely chopped 1 shallot, finely diced
– ½ bunch of tarragon, chopped
– ½ bunch of flat-leaf parsley, chopped
– 4 tbsp good-quality mayonnaise
– 4 tbsp crème fraîche
Confit egg yolk
1. Fill a medium saucepan with hot water and place the eggs in the pan. Using a thermometer, heat the water to 65°C. Keep the water between 60 and 65°C for 45 minutes.
2. Remove the eggs and leave them to cool for about 1 hour at room temperature. Peel the shell off, as well as the white, and the membrane around the egg yolk.
3. Place the confit egg yolks in a bowl and whisk them together for 3 minutes until smooth. Season to taste and set aside.
1. Preheat the oven to 200°C/180°C fan/gas 6.
2. To make the sauce gribiche, mix all ingredients together in a bowl and season with sea salt to taste.
3. Heat a griddle pan over high heat until very hot. Rinse the steaks under cold running water and pat them dry with kitchen paper.
4. Brush the steaks all over with a little olive oil. Sear them on the griddle for about 3 minutes, turning them until they are nicely charred all over.
5. Place on a roasting tray or ovenproof frying pan and place in the oven for 4–5 minutes (for medium-rare doneness). Remove from the oven and transfer to a plate.
6. Cover loosely with foil and leave to rest for 5 minutes. Carve the steaks and serve them with a good dollop each of the egg yolk and sauce gribiche.
