2tsp Olive Oil
2tbsp Butter

Method
1. Combine all the marinade ingredients in a large dish, add the meat, and cover. (Make sure the dish is deep enough to allow the meat to be covered by the marinade). Leave in the fridge to marinate for 3-4 hours.

Woodmill Tip
Or leave the steaks to marinade overnight - the longer, the more flavour the meat will absorb.

 2. Once the steaks are ready to cook, heat a skillet with some oil until the pan is hot. Sear the Loin steaks (no more than 3 minutes each side), until caramelised, and put them aside to rest. 
3. While the meat is resting, prepare a pot of water with a pinch of salt and bring to the boil. Add Jerusalem Artichokes and par-boil for 4 minutes. Remove the Jerusalem Artichokes and set to dry a little on kitchen paper. Meanwhile, blanche the Green Beans in boiling water for 1-2 minutes

Woodmill Tip
Use the water from the Jerusalem Artichokes to bring an earthy flavour to the beans.

4.  Heat a frying pan with olive oil, salt and pepper, and add the artichokes, once hot. Add garlic and Green Beans after 3 minutes, and finally the butter. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

5. Slice the steaks to preference, serve and enjoy.
