Steak with grilled leak and radish salad

Steak with grilled leak and radish salad
4 large leeks, tops trimmed but root ends kept intact, halved lengthwise and rinsed thoroughly
Extra virgin olive oil (EVOO), for liberal drizzling
Salt and pepper
4 sirloin steaks (about 1 inch thick)
… 2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce, for brushing
2-3 sprigs rosemary, finely chopped
3-4 cloves garlic, chopped
1 celery heart with leaves, thinly sliced on an angle
1 cup flat leaf parsley leaves
4 large radishes, thinly sliced
Juice of 1 lemon
Celery salt, for sprinkling
2 large, ripe tomatoes, thickly sliced

Pre-heat an outdoor grill or grill pan to medium-high. In a large pot, bring 3 inches of water to a boil. Add the leeks and parboil for 3 minutes. Transfer to a clean towel and let cool, cut-side down. Dress with a little EVOO, salt and pepper. Meanwhile, brush the steaks with the Worcestershire sauce, then season on both sides with the rosemary, garlic, a thin coating of EVOO, salt and pepper. Let stand for 15 minutes.

Grill the steaks for 4 minutes on each side for medium-rare, or a minute more per side for medium to medium well doneness. Grill the leeks until marked, about 2 minutes on each side.

While the steaks cook, in a salad bowl, combine the celery, parsley, radishes, lemon juice and a drizzle of EVOO. Sprinkle with the celery salt and pepper.

Serve the steaks topped with a criss-crossed grilled leek and with tomato slices alongside. Top the tomatoes with the celery salad.
