Recipe: Flash-fried Beef, in Honey & Dark Soy Sauce

For four:
Ingredients: 1 lb piece of Beef Skirt (I believe that's what's called Flank Steak in the States); 3 tbs Dark Soy Sauce; 3 tbs clear, runny Honey; a handful of chopped Fresh Coriander; 3 minced cloves Garlic; Ground Pepper.

1. Mix together all ingredients - apart from the Beef - in a broad, shallow dish. Place the piece of Beef in the dish, and turn it several times to ensure it is thoroughly coated in the marinade. Cover with cling-film and leave for six to eight hours, turning the meat over once or twice during that time.

2. Pre-heat the oven to 80 degrees C (no higher!)

3. Heat a non-stick grill pan over a high heat, and when really hot, flash fry the beef approximately one minute on each side. Return the beef to the marinade, and place the dish in the pre-heated oven for at least ten minutes to heat through. It can be left in the oven for as much as forty minutes or so, which is very practical if you're entertaining.

4. Slice thinly to serve in strips, with the vegetable of your choice. (NB. Always remember to slice across the grain, or you risk the slices appearing tough.)
