  1. Step 1

    Toss the steak in a large bowl with the garlic, seasoning well. Leave to marinate for 20 mins.
  2. Step 2

    Make a pesto by blitzing the rocket, 150ml of oil, juice and zest of 1 lemon, parmesan, pine nuts and basil in a food processor, until combined. Season to taste and set aside.
  3. Step 3

    Put a frying pan over a high heat and, once hot, add 1 tsp of oil. Cook the steak for 2-3 mins on each side, depending on the thickness, or until well seared. Remove from the pan and leave to rest for 5 mins.
  4. Step 4

    While the steak rests, toss the cime di rapa or broccoli with the remaining tsp of oil. Season well. Wipe the pan clean and put back over a high heat. Cook the vegetables, tossing often, for 5-6 mins or until charred and tender. Transfer to a bowl and toss with the remaining 1 tbsp of lemon juice.
  5. Step 5

    Slice the steak thinly. Serve with the charred veg, a healthy dollop of the pesto and a drizzle of oil to finish.
