For the steak, heat a dash of vegetable oil in a large frying pan and cook the sirloin for roughly three minutes on each side. Remove from the heat and leave to rest, covered, in a warm place.

Add the spring greens to the deep-fat fryer and cook until crisp. Carefully remove using a slotted spoon and transfer to a plate lined with kitchen paper.

For the teriyaki sauce, heat all the ingredients in a small pan and simmer.

To finish the steak and vegetables, cut the pak choi leaves away from the stem and rinse under cold, running water.

Heat a dash of sesame oil in a pan and toss the leaves and sliced garlic for 4-5 minutes, or until wilted.

To serve, slice the sirloin and lay it on the pak choi on each plate. Spoon the grapefruit segments along with the ‘seaweed’ and drizzle the teriyaki sauce over the meat.
