Onglet Steak, Pickled Walnuts & Horseradish

by Jeremy Lee

Main Easy ​​​​​​​ 4 ​​​​​​​ Prep/Cook: 30 minutes


1kg onglet

cracked black pepper

flaky sea salt

250g of fresh horseradish

50g of sugar

4 tbsp of cider vinegar

300ml of double cream

8 pickled walnuts



1. Begin by preparing the onglet. Trim away any excess fat and sinew, then slice the onglet in half lengthways. Remove any sinew running through both halves of the meat, and season both halves generously with salt and pepper, rubbing the seasoning into the flesh until evenly coated

2. Place a large frying pan over a high heat and drizzle over enough oil to form a light film across the bottom of the pan. Once hot, add the onglet pieces to the pan and cook for 4-5 minutes without moving the meat, allowing a deep crust to form but reducing the heat a little if required

3. Flip the meat over and continue to cook on the other side for 30 seconds, then remove the pan from the heat. Leave the onglet to rest, still in the pan, for at least 15 minutes before serving

4. Meanwhile, prepare the horseradish cream. Grate the fresh horseradish into a bowl and pour over the sugar and vinegar, mixing together until well combined. Whisk in the double cream and mix well, then cover and leave to sit until ready to serve

5. Once rested, slice the onglet halves into even pieces and divide between plates. Top with a handful of watercress, a few pickled walnuts on the side and a generous spoonful of the horseradish cream. Drizzle over any juices from the pan and serve immediately
