Plateau de Steak- Top 5 steak recipe

Deciding to make steak is never a ‘mistake’! This is among my shortest  recipes that certainly epitomizes the creation of dynamite in just a few minutes.

It took less than ten minutes for me to assemble the board stylishly and this is one of my recipes that requires fresh vegetables to bring out its splendour! This steak recipe is an ideal centrepiece for your dinner table and it also integrates the protein with the salad so it is a handy 2 in 1.

Note: The time you are going to fry the steak depends on how you prefer to have it.  If you would like it:

i) Rare - fry it for about 2-3 minutes on each side

ii) Medium rare - 4-5 minutes on each side

iii) Well done - 6-7 minutes on each side

Time: 30-35 minutes


  • 4-5 pieces of steak (i used sirloin)
  • 7 tablespoons salted butter
  •  salt
  • Black pepper

For the board:

  • 2  red bell peppers
