Everyone loves a laid-back British barbecue and this classic steak dish with homemade onion rings and char-grilled tomatoes is the ideal meal to serve. 

Sift the flour into a medium bowl and make a well in the centre. Add the egg yolks and gradually pour in the milk, whisking to combine until a smooth batter. Cover with cling film and leave to stand in the fridge for 30 minutes. 

Preheat the oven to gas 4, 180°C, fan 160°C. Heat the oil in a large saucepan over a medium heat for about 3 minutes until the oil begins to shimmer slightly.

Whisk the egg white until stiff then fold into the batter. Dust the onion rings in a little flour then dip into the batter. Carefully place in the hot oil one at a time. Only fry up to 10 onion rings at a time or the temperature will drop. When the rings float to the surface, cook for a further minute, turning once or twice until golden all over. Carefully remove from the oil, drain on kitchen towel and put on a large baking tray. Keep the rings in the oven so they remain warm while you cook the steaks

Heat 1tbsp oil in a large nonstick frying pan over a medium to high heat and cook the steaks for 2-2 1/2 minutes on each side for a medium-rare steak. Add another minute for a medium to well-done steak. Loosely cover the steaks with foil and leave to rest for 5 minutes.

Meanwhile, heat the remaining oil in a nonstick frying pan and add the mushrooms and tomatoes, cooking for 2-3 minutes on each side. Serve with the sirloin steaks and onion rings on the side.

Tip: Test if the vegetable oil is ready for deep-frying and place a large cube of bread into the oil. If the bread browns nicely in 1 minute, it’s ready.
