  1. Brush oil over the steak, season well. Heat a large heavy based chargrill or frying pan over medium high heat. Cook for 3-4 mins on each side for medium or until cooked to your liking. Transfer steaks to a clean plate, cover loosely with foil and rest for 5 mins before serving.
  2. Meanwhile to make the polenta, in a large saucepan bring the milk and 2 ½ cups (625ml) water to the boil. Reduce heat to medium. In a slow and steady stream pour in the polenta, whisking continuously. Reduce the heat to low. Cook, stirring for 3-4 minutes until thickened and smooth. Stir in the butter and parmesan. Season.
