grilled steak with salsa verde and soft polenta



1.Make salsa verde: Blend or process parsley, mint, basil, capers, garlic and rind until a coarse paste forms. Transfer to a small bowl; stir in oil to combine.
2.Boil the water in a medium saucepan. Gradually add polenta, stirring constantly. Reduce heat; simmer, stirring, for 10 minutes or until polenta thickens. Add cheese, stir until cheese melts. Fold through half the salsa verde; cover to keep warm.
3.Meanwhile, cook beef on a heated oiled grill plate (or grill or barbecue) for 4 minutes each side or until browned and cooked as desired. Cover; rest for 5 minutes then slice beef thickly on an angle.
4.Serve beef with polenta; accompany with remaining salsa verde.

The polenta will firm on standing, so stir in a little hot water to loosen the mixture.
