  • 450-600 gr rump cap steak
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp butter
  • Coarse sea salt
  1. Heat a cast-iron pan over high heat and as soon as it starts to fume lower to medium heat.
  2. Add the oil and the butter. As soon as the butter is melted add the rum cap steak and let it sear for 3 minutes. Flip and cook for an extra 3 minutes.

  3. Remove the steak from the pan and let it rest for 5 minutes. Season with coarse sea salt. Cut into strips (like in the pictures) and serve.
