  • 30g unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 garlic clove, crushed
  • ½ tsp clear honey
  • ½ tsp Cajun rub
  • 2 tsp olive oil
  • 2 corn on the cob
  • Pinch salt
  • ½ pointed spring cabbage, shredded
  • 2 salad onions, finely sliced
  • 1 red chilli, deseeded and finely chopped
  • 1 tbsp mayonnaise
  • 1 tbsp Greek natural strained yogurt
  • ½ lime, zest and juice
  • 2 x 150g sirloin steaks, trimmed of excess fat


  1. Mix the butter, garlic, ¼ tsp honey and the Cajun spice mix until combined, then put on a piece of baking parchment and roll into a cylinder. Chill until ready to use.

  2. Heat 1 tsp oil in a large frying pan over a medium-high heat. Cut the kernels from the corn and fry with the salt for 6-8 minutes until golden. Tip into a large bowl with the cabbage, salad onions and chilli. Mix the mayonnaise, yogurt, lime zest and juice and the remaining ¼ tsp honey, then toss through the vegetables to make a slaw.

  3. Heat the remaining 1 tsp oil in the same large frying pan over a high heat. Season the steaks and fry on each side for 2 minutes for medium-rare. Put on plates and immediately top with the Cajun butter (put 1/2 on each steak). Allow to sit for a minute, loosely covered with foil so that the meat rests and the butter melts, then serve with the slaw. Enjoy with some baked sweet potato wedges, if liked.
