  • Preheat the oven to 180 degrees C. Toss the eggplants in the oil and place into the oven for 40 minutes or until soft. In the meantime coat the steak in the spices and set aside.When the egg plants are ready, remove from the oven. Heat a pan nice and hot with a bit of oil and sear the steak for 1 minute on each side (the strip steak is cut thin so it should cook a perfect medium rate at this stage. Add a bit more oil and throw in the eggplants and toss in the seasoned pan. If you would like your steak done a bit more, slice and toss it in at this point. Mix together the tomato, onion, parsley and olive oil. Season everything an serve together.
