Nutritional values

Rump steak is rich in high-quality protein, the individual parts of which provide the best building material for all body cells, enzymes, hormones and the blood protein. In addition, the meat provides a lot of iron, without which the red blood pigment haemoglobin cannot be provided for oxygen transport.

If there is any sauce left over: Well sealed, it keeps in the refrigerator for a few days and is an ideal souvenir for the next barbecue party, for example.

Preparation steps

Sirloin Steak preparation step 1

Peel and finely chop garlic. Rinse chile pepper, pat dry, cut lengthwise, remove seeds and chop finely. Cut 2 limes in half, squeeze to measure about 50 ml (approximately 4 tablespoons) of juice.

Sirloin Steak preparation step 2

Heat 1 tablespoon each of canola and olive oils in a pot. Over medium heat, sauté garlic until lightly browned.  Combine chile pepper, lime juice, cumin, salt and pepper.

Bring the sauce to a boil again. Transfer to a small bowl and let cool slightly. Meanwhile, rinse cilantro, pat dry and chop the leaves finely. Add cilantro to the cooled sauce and set aside for about 30 minutes.  Season the sauce with salt and pepper to taste.

Sirloin Steak preparation step 4

Rinse the steaks, pat dry and season with salt and pepper. Heat the remaining oil in a pan. Cook steaks for 3-4 minutes over high heat, longer for a well-done steak.
