Before you begin...
Get all your ingredients and equipment ready
Skim through these steps
Wash your fruit and veg
Note: Equipment and pan sizes vary, and if you like your steak well-done, it may take you a little longer than 10 mins
Now, let's get started!
Heat a large, dry, wide-based pan (preferably non-stick) over a high heat
Heat a separate, large, wide-based pan (preferably non-stick) with a generous drizzle of vegetable oil over a medium heat
Pat the rump steaks dry with kitchen paper, drizzle them with vegetable oil and season with a generous pinch of salt
Once very hot, add the steaks to the pan
For rare, cook for 2 min max on each side
For medium-rare, cook for 2-3 min on each side
For medium, cook for 3-4 min on each side
When the steaks are cooked, transfer them to a plate to rest
While the steaks are cooking, trim, then chop the spring onion[s] roughly
Once the other pan is hot, add the chopped spring onion, smoked paprika, cayenne pepper (can't handle the heat? Go easy!), soy sauce and tomato paste and cook for 1 min or until fragrant
Once fragrant, add the steamed basmati rice with a pinch of salt and cook for 2-3 min or until warmed through – this is your spicy rice
Meanwhile, combine the tomato ketchup, chipotle paste, dried oregano, chilli flakes (can't handle the heat? Go easy!) and the juice of 1/2  lemon in a bowl
Add 1 tbsp [2 tbsp] olive oil and a generous pinch of salt – this is your peri-peri sauce
Combine the juice of the remaining lemon with 2 tbsp [4 tbsp] olive oil and a pinch of salt in a separate large bowl
Wash the baby leaf salad, then pat it dry with kitchen paper
Add the baby leaf salad to the bowl and give it a good mix up until evenly coated – this is your dressed salad
Serve the rested steaks with the spicy rice, dressed salad and peri-peri sauce to the side
