Olive oil – 2 tablespoons. large.
Lemon – 1 pc.
Salt, black pepper, herbs – to taste.

Before serving, the steaks can be poured over again with lemon juice and sprinkled with fresh herbs.


Grilled mushrooms are a real treat. Mushrooms are the best for this. They can be cooked whole, or you can cut them – it’s a matter of taste.
