  • Chicken stock : 450 ml
  • Parmesan : 100 g
  • Unsalted butter : 50 g

  • 1For the steak:

    Season the steaks with salt and pepper. Heat a frying pan, add the olive oil and then cook the steaks for two minutes on each sides. Remove from the pan and leave to rest.

  • 2For the polenta:

    Place the milk and the stock in the same pan used to cook the steak. Bring the liquid to the boil and then add the polenta. Keep over a low heat and beat until thick, light and fluffy - this should take about 5 minutes. Grate the Parmesan into the pan, add the butter and beat in. Season to taste.

  • 3For the garnish:

    Wash and spin the rocket. Peel and finely slice the shallot. Peel the garlic and crush with the side of a knife to form a paste. Zest and juice the lemon. Pick the basil leaves from their stalks. Cut the chives into batons. Combine all of these ingredients with the olive oil.

  • 4To serve:

    Spooon the polenta into a bowl. Carve the steak and place on top, letting the juices run into the polenta. Finish with a neat pile of salad on top.
