1 dry aged beef rump cap, trimmed
kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
half a bunch watercress
200 gram piece horseradish, peeled
250 grams creme fraiche
1 lemon, juiced
sea salt, to taste


1. Light a barbecue. Season the beef with salt and pepper. Cook the beef, gently turning occasionally, over the charcoal until the internal temperature of 50-55°C is reached. Transfer the beef to a cutting board and let it rest for at least 10 minutes before slicing.
