Beef with herb sauce

Posted on

Most of us enjoy a barbecue in the summer; in this recipe it is not necessary to have a barbecue – a grill pan can also be used. The sauce is uncooked and full of herbs – parsley, coriander, and thyme.  Many of us consider gem lettuce to be eaten raw as an ingredient in a salad, here it is charred on a barbecue or grill pan and drizzled with balsamic vinegar. The beef is seasoned with only salt and pepper, with the additional flavours coming from the tangy raw sauce.

1 bunch flat leaf parsley chopped

1 tbsp chopped thyme leaves
2 garlic cloves
