    Serves: 4

    Ingredients

    • 4 essential Waitrose British beef sirloin steaks, about 350g total
    • 2½ tbsp olive oil
    • 1 lemon, grated zest
    • 2 garlic cloves, sliced
    • 1 bunch salad onions, trimmed and halved lengthways
    • 2 red onions, each cut into 8 wedges

    2. If grilling, heat the griddle pan on a high heat. Toss the salad onions, red onion and shallots in 1 tbsp olive oil and season. Griddle or barbecue over hot coals covered in a light layer of ash, for 4–5 minutes, turning occasionally, until soft but with bite.
    3. Toss the onions in a bowl with the last ½ tbsp olive oil, the parsley, vinegar and capers. Set aside.
    4. Season the steaks, then cook for 3 minutes on each side for rare or 4 minutes for medium. Serve with the onion and parsley salad.
