    Quick Supper - Sirloin Steak with Rocket Pasta

    This special supper is easy to assemble. All you need is a small stove to cook the pasta. If you don't have a barbecue for the steak and aubergine, fry the aubergine on the stove first, then cook the pasta and dress, then quickly fry the steaks while the pasta stands. Cooking times for the steak will vary, but as a guide allow about 4-5 minutes per side for a medium steak.

    • Cooking time: 15 minutes
