1
To begin, place the brine ingredients in a pan and heat until the salt has dissolved. Leave to cool
2
Meanwhile, combine all the ingredients for the salsa verde in a blender, adding a glug of oil. Blitz to a loose dressing consistency, adding more oil if necessary. Season with lemon juice, salt and pepper and leave to sit for 2 hours before serving
3
Once the brine has cooled, add the beef, ensuring it is fully submerged. Leave to brine for 1 hour
  • 1kg beef picanha, also known as rump cap
4
To make the celeriac purée, add the butter to a pan and place over a medium heat. Add the celeriac and sweat gently in the butter. Before it starts to colour, cover with the milk and cream and simmer until tender
  • 200g of celeriac, peeled and diced
  • 25g of butter
  • 100ml of milk
  • 100ml of double cream
5
Drain the celeriac, reserving the cooking liquid. Blend the celeriac until smooth, adding a splash of the cooking liquid if needed to form a smooth purée. Season with salt to taste
6
Remove the beef from the brine and rinse in cold water. Cut into 3cm thick slices
7
Preheat a barbecue or chargrill pan until very hot
8
Combine the rub ingredients in a bowl and rub over each steak as a seasoning. Drizzle over a little oil, rubbing it into the meat to mingle with the spice rub

Meanwhile, heat all the ingredients for the beef and barley glaze in a pan, stirring until combined. Brush the steaks with the glaze as they cook, being careful not to let it burn
  • 100ml of beef stock, reduced to 50ml
  • 250ml of porter
  • 10ml of soy sauce
  • 50g of malt extract
  • 50g of Marmite
11
Remove the roots from the leeks, wash well and place in a bowl. Char the leeks on the barbecue or griddle pan with the beef until blackened on the outside, then remove and allow to cool slightly

12
Remove the steaks from the heat once they reach 52°C when tested with a temperature probe. Leave in a warm place to rest

13
Make the dressing by whisking the ingredients together in a bowl until emulsified. Drizzle over the leek roots and set aside
14
Once cool enough to handle, peel and discard the outer blackened layer of the leeks. Add the water to a pan, bring to a simmer and whisk in the butter to emulsify. Add the leeks and stir through to keep the leeks warm, over a low heat
  • 100ml of water
  • 100g of butter
15
Once rested, the steaks should read 56–57°C on a temperature probe. Glaze once more, then carve into slices. Season with smoked salt
16
Add a spoonful of celeriac purée to each plate. Place slices of beef on top, dress with the leeks and sprinkle over some puffed barley. Spoon over the salsa verde and finish with the dressed leek roots to serve
