  • Preheat oven to 100°C.
  • Salt and pepper the steak and sear it in a pan over high heat, first on the bone, then on the fat side and then on both sides. Place in an ovenproof dish and cook at 100°C for one and a half hours.
  • Wash the fennel, pat dry and cut the green from the bulb. Cut in half, remove the stalk with a knife, cut in half again, cut into thin strips and place in a bowl. Trim 2cm off the stalks of the asparagus, peel, cut diagonally into oblong slices and add to the fennel in the bowl. Squeeze over the juice of the lime. Add salt, pepper, ground coriander and olive oil and mix well.
  • Leave the salad for 10 minutes for the flavours to infuse.
  • Quarter the strawberries and add to the salad with the fine green of the fennel and chopped mint before serving. Stir gently. Season with salt and pepper.
  • Arrange on a flat plate and serve with the beef and a dry-aged spice mix, mustard, pesto or whatever your heart desires.
