This is a marinade you not only use to marinate your steak, but you then boil it and use it for serving, too!
1/3 cup minced shallots
1/2 cup olive oil
3 tablespoons fresh thyme
1/4 teaspoon white pepper
3 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
Mix the marinade ingredients in a non-reactive pan. Score the meat, and place it in the pan and turn in the marinade. Marinate for at least 2 hours at room temperature or up to 24 hours refrigerated. If refrigerated, turn the steak in the marinade occasionally. Remove the steaks from the marinade (retain marinade) and grill to taste. Bring the remaining marinade to a boil in a non-reactive saucepan and remove from heat.
Carve the meat in thin diagonal slices across the grain (this makes for a tender cut) and arrange the slices on a warm platter. Pour the carving juices and the marinade over the meat. Decorate, if desired, with parsley sprigs or watercress.
