  • 3.

    Remove onion from the pan and set aside.

  • 4.

    Using the same pan, heat the remaining olive oil over high heat.

  • 5.

    Add steak to the pan and sprinkle with salt and pepper.

  • 6.

    Cook for 1 minute, turn and cook the other side for a further minute.

  • 7.

    Spread the bread with garlic crème.

  • 8.

    Place rocket on 4 of the slices and top with tomatoes.

  • 9.

    Place onions on top of tomato, followed by the steak.
